About the NAFL North American Football League 1988

Charlie Finley, the former Oakland A’s Major League Baseball owner, after the failed attempt to start up the International Baseball League with Donald Trump in 1981/1982, announced plans in 1987 for a NAFL – North American Football League, which would begin play in 1988, and would be a merger of the CFL – Canadian Football League – with 9 new teams based in USA: Birmingham, New York, Chicago, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Memphis, Phoenix, Jacksonville and Dallas-Fort Worth. The league would be based in Birmingham, but never got off the ground. The NAFL merger of CFL and USA teams would have had a Championship Game pitting the winners of the CFL versus the winners of the US League and would have had an inter-locking schedule. The Canadian Football League dismissed the merger talks, but did not rule it out altogether, saying anything is possible for the right amount of money. [References: 1]
