San Antonio’s AAF team to be named San Antonio Commanders


San Antonio’s newest football team finally has a name.

The Alliance of American Football announced on Monday that San Antonio’s team will be called the San Antonio Commanders.

The league unveiled its East Alliance teams last week and early Monday morning announced its final four teams from the West.

“For over 300 years, San Antonio has had a constant military presence with one of the nation’s largest active and retired military populations in the United States,” the league said in a statement. “The San Antonio Commanders honor the heroic leaders in the United States Air Force and United States Army who have dedicated their lives to service and sacrifice for this great country. The team colors feature maroon, a color used in the official city logo, silver, in reference to dress military swords carried by officers, and the familiar red of the Texas state flag. The shape of the logo is representative of a military patch and includes a depiction of the Alamo, a profound symbol for the city of San Antonio. The single star is a nod to the Lone Star state. The Commanders will make Military City, USA proud through teamwork, resolve, innovation, sacrifice and results.”

The Commanders join the Arizona Hotshots, Salt Lake Stallions, and  San Diego Fleet in the West.

The Commanders begin play in the Alamodome in February 2019.
