LAS VEGAS - The Arena Football League will return to CBS Sports Network for the fourth consecutive season with a slate of 17 regular season games, the League Office announced today.

The complete CBS Sports Network television schedule features numerous highly anticipated AFL matchups throughout the regular season, including two postseason games, one from each round of the postseason. The schedule kicks off with one of the first games of the regular season as the Arizona Rattlers travel to take on the Portland Thunder on Friday, April 1, 2016 (10 p.m. ET).

"We have been impressed with CBS Sports Network's continued growth as a broadcast entity," AFL Commissioner Scott C. Butera said. "We are excited to continue the relationship and to be a part of the CBS family of networks. This weekly platform will allow us to showcase great match ups for our fans to enjoy." A re-match of American Conference title game will highlight Week 2 on Monday, April 11 when the Philadelphia Soul host the Jacksonville Sharks at Wells Fargo Center. The Tampa Bay Storm and Orlando Predators will also continue the League's most historic rivalry, the "War on I-4," in Week 13 on Friday, June 24 from "The Jungle" (Amway Arena) in Orlando.

The 2016 season is CBS Sports Network's fourth as the primary national television partner of the AFL.
