ABOUT ARENA FOOTBALL TALK

Arena Football Talk (AFT) was launched November 21st, 2014 to provide news, exclusive features, and other information from around the various indoor and arena football leagues. We then started recruiting people to join and grow our organization. Today we have people providing top quality content, gaining experience, and showcasing their talent while spreading coverage nationwide and beyond.

On June 1st, 2018 Multimedia Director Aaron Castete sat down with Gary Ellenbolt of 620AM Fox Sports Sioux City to promote AFT as well as our YouTube channel AFT Network.

On August 11th, 2018 we partnered with 920 WON: The Apple to have a one hour broadcast called AFT Buzz which airs every Friday at 7pm EST. We discuss all things indoor/arena football from the four core leagues (CIF, IFL, AFL, and NAL) and beyond. You never know who we might bring on as a guest. You don’t want to miss a second!

On August 29th, 2018 we partnered with Arena Football Nation powered by Action VR Network where they’ll join us for shows, as well as AFT staff members being guests on their show. On January 7th, 2019 it was officially announced that Arena Football Nation powered by Action VR Network would be picking up our show AFT Buzz and airing it at 3pm eastern time every Saturday. Our show continues to be picked up by additional online stations as our presence grows!

If you’re interested in joining us please submit a writing sample to theaftnetwork@gmail.com and we’ll get back to you as soon as we can. If you have a certain league or team in mind that you’d like to cover please mention that in your email. We look forward to hearing from you!
