The AFL had 8 teams in 2016 with the expansion Washington Valor set to join in 2017. The LA Kiss' ownership has bailed, leaving the team up for sale. Orlando has suspended operations & Jacksonville & Arizona are leaving for different leagues. The Portland Steel are league owned. That leaves Cleveland, Philadelphia & Tampa Bay.

unless the league keeps Portland alive, then it'll be a 5 team. Rumors are that the league will operate in 2017 with 4 or 5 teams. There's apparently a few expansion teams willing to come in in 2018.

well, Arizona's application to join the IFL was rejected, so they may not be leaving. And there's reports the AFL might have a 6th team ready to join.

Arizona is officially joining the IFL. AFL will play in 2017 with only 4 teams with each team playing 12 games.

AFL adds Baltimore expansion team for 2017. League currently at 5 teams for 2017 season. Reports are also suggesting that the AFL will likely add another expansion team in Detroit to be owned by the NBA's Detroit Pistons. The Detroit AFL team reportedly has a deal in place with the new Little Caesars Arena.
