 Tulsa,  OK (Sports  Network)  -  The Arena  Football  League  will extend  its
 regular-season schedule from 16 to 18 games next season.
 
 A 16-game schedule had been in effect since 2003.
 
 "There  has never  been a  better time  for the  Arena Football  League," said
 commissioner Jerry Kurz. "The product is exciting, our economic model is sound
 and  fans are  demanding affordable family entertainment. Extending our season
 is a great decision, both from a business and fan perspective."
 
 Next  year's AFL will consist of 19 teams, up from the 15 that participated in
 the league's bounce-back season.
 
 The AFL took the 2009 campaign off to restructure its economic model.
 
 Spokane beat Tampa Bay in this year's Arena Bowl earlier this month.
