The NFL and its league partners are moving forward with plans to build a league in the United States that will compete in a newly created league structure that will allow teams to compete for the national championship and make the playoffs.
The league will be named the National Football League (NFL).
The move will be made official by the league on Friday, after the league meets with the American Football Coaches Association (AAFPA) to discuss the format.
The new league structure will give each team $2 million per year in franchise money, an increase from the $1.3 million franchise cap that was in place in 2016.
The money is set to rise by $50 million per team.
The league has been in talks with the AAFPA for some time about creating a unified structure, but they haven’t been able to reach a common ground.
The last league agreement with the AFL included a $100 million franchise payment that would have been made to teams in 2018, which would have raised the total amount of money in the franchise cap from $1 million to $2.5 million per club.
The NFL has said that it would prefer to avoid a $50m franchise cap increase to protect the franchises in the existing model.
The $1 billion franchise cap has been a major sticking point for the league, and it is one that the league is working to fix in the coming weeks.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said at a press conference in late March that the franchise fee would be eliminated and that the money would be paid to teams on a sliding scale, with the higher the money, the more guaranteed money.
The $1bn cap was raised in the new model in 2016 to $1,500 million, but it has not been implemented.
