San Antonio will host the first ever league-wide training camp in January 2019 that will see hundreds of pro football players visit the Alamo City, the Alliance of American Football announced on Thursday.
Players and coaches from all eight teams will train and practice in San Antonio as they work to trim their respective rosters from 75 players to 52. San Antonio’s AAF franchise has yet to be named but they will be the ones who feel at home the most with training camp in their backyard.
“Since our very first conversation with The Alliance, we knew this would be a positive relationship for our entire city,” San Antonio Mayor Ron Nirenberg said in a statement. “We’re pleased to offer all eight teams state-of-the-art training facilities and the city’s support as they work to build their teams’ foundation. When The Alliance convenes in San Antonio for the month of January, we will see a positive economic impact for our great city and San Antonians will have an opportunity to witness a new era in football unfold.”
San Antonio’s Alliance of American Football franchise will kick off in February 2019.
