Indoor professional football returning to Phoenix

Posted: Updated:

CHICAGO (AP) -- Indoor professional football is expected to return this spring in a mix of large and medium markets.

Officials with the new Arena Football One league say they also have a more modest economic model they hope will ensure success.

The league is set to debut in April in 15 communities, including Phoenix. The league offices will be in Tulsa, Okla.
