The Alliance of American Football will suspend all operations effective Tuesday, according to multiple reports.

The AAF is a first-year, eight-team professional football league that began play the week after the 2019 Super Bowl. All teams had played eight of their 10 scheduled regular-season games through last weekend.

Per The Action Network’s Darren Rovell:

Tom Dundon effectively bought a majority stake in the league in mid-February, with the league announcing his commitment of $250 million. It later became clear that Dundon, who owns the Carolina Hurricanes, was funding the league on a week-to-week basis, with his approximate total commitment being $70 million to this point.

After the deal with Dundon, sources say it became clear to league co-founders Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian that Dundon’s objectives were different from the original plan.
