The A11Professonal Football League, a spring professional football league that hopes to kick off in 2015, will not have any showcase games in 2014. The A11FL had planned to have two showcase games this year, one in Dallas and the other in Tampa, Fla.

Earlier this year, the A11FL announced its six inaugural franchises and a television deal with ESPN. However, according to a report, at least two of the previously named franchises will not be part of the league.

The Bay Area Sea Lions and Los Angeles Express will no longer be members of the league, reportedly due to California’s workers’ compensation laws.

Shortly after Super Bowl XLVIII, the A11FL sent out a release naming the Sea Lions, Express, New Jersey Generals, Chicago Staggs, Dallas Wranglers and Tampa Bay Bandits as the six charter members of the league. Later, the Michigan Panthers were named as the seventh franchise.

The league reportedly still hopes to begin play in 2015 with eight teams.
