New Arena Football Team Coming to Pittsburgh

While this doesn’t have to do with the Steelers on the field, it still has something to do with football in the Steel City. Reports say that there is going to be a new Arena Football team coming to the city, and former Steeler HOF Lynn Swann is going to be involved.

Multiple sources confirmed Wednesday that the Arena Football League is returning to one of its original cities with an expansion team whose ownership group includes former Steeler and NFL Hall of Famer Lynn Swann. An announcement is expected Friday at Consol Energy Center.

The indoor football team will play home games in the city’s state-of-the-art arena, which opened last night.

Neither the Penguins nor the Steelers hold ownership stakes in the AFL team. Officials from both franchises and the AFL declined comment. Swann did not respond to an e-mail seeking comment.

Matt Loede has been in the sports media for over 16 years, with experience covering the MLB, NBA, and NFL. On Sunday’s during football season, you can hear Matt on national networks like Fox Sports Radio, Associated Press, and others. Born and raised in Cleveland Ohio, Matt studies and talks football inside and out, and is anxious to share his thoughts and comments with readers on a daily basis.
