The Alliance of American Football’s biggest success came in San Antonio. But the league still failed there.
Via Madison Iszler of the San Antonio Express-News, local business have gotten stiffed by the AAF following its implosion earlier this month.
Per the report, various hotels, a local university, and a school district have founded themselves stunk with “unpaid bills for hundreds of thousands of dollars.”
“I have been informed that there are a number of hotels — at least five — that have not fully been paid by the league,” San Antonio Hotel & Lodging Association president Liza Barratachea told the Express-News. “It’s a significant number.”
The good news is that the Alamodome’s invoice of $253,836 for San Antonio Commanders games and services will be covered by a $300,000 deposit that the AAF previously made. More businesses will wish they had demanded similar security from a league that claimed to be funded, but clearly was not.
