San Diego Fleet

The 2019 San Diego Fleet season was the first, last, and only season for the San Diego Fleet as a professional American football franchise; they played as charter members of the Alliance of American Football (AAF). They were one of eight teams to compete in the AAF for the 2019 season. The Fleet played their home games at the SDCCU Stadium and were led by head coach Mike Martz.

On April 2, 2019, the league's football operations were suspended,[1][2] and on April 4 the league allowed players to leave their contracts to sign with NFL teams.[3] The effect was to cancel the final two regular season games and the scheduled post-season playoffs.[4] On April 17 the Alliance of American Football filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy.[5] The Fleet's final record for the abbreviated season was 3-5.
