The Arena Football League has terminated its relationship with the ownership group of the Chicago Rush, the League office announced today.
"While the ownership was new to our League, we still have expectations that must be met," Arena Football League Commissioner Jerry B. Kurz said. "For the AFL to be as strong as it can be, we have to hold all Teams accountable to a set of guidelines and the Chicago Rush Owners have unfortunately not met those guidelines."
The Chicago Rush organization will remain intact during the 2013 season and a full schedule of games will be played.
