Salt Lake City 4th city for new Alliance football league

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) Salt Lake City is the fourth franchise location for the Alliance of American Football.

The startup league already had announced Orlando, Atlanta and Memphis for team locales. The Salt Lake City entry granted Monday will play at Rice Eccles Stadium, home of the Utah Utes of the Pac-12, and the site of the opening and closing ceremonies of the 2002 Winter Olympics.

A coach for the Utah team will be announced at a future date.

The Alliance will feature eight teams playing a 10-week regular season beginning Feb. 9, 2019 – the weekend after the Super Bowl – on CBS. There will be two playoff rounds and a championship game on the weekend of April 26-28.
