Chicago Swans

On April 15 the Swans will kick off their 2000 season with an away game at Cincinnati. This looks to be the first of what will likely be a season that has the Swans playing in more than 30 games between April and the national championships. In an attempt to establish the MAAFL and "league" play within the Midwest, the Swans will play each area team either home or away this season and then visit this year's home opponents next season. This league schedule will include Milwaukee, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Kansas City, Nashville, and Detroit.
