The summer saw the league’s first NFL player come into the fold, with former Philadelphia Eagle and Houston Texans running back Ryan Moats joining the league office. The league also got its first chance to showcase its product in front of an international audience, landing its Championship Game on the Twitch Front Page. The event was such a hit, the league inked five more broadcasts for the following season and continued their Twitch Front Page era through early 2019. Mexico City claimed its first title in the Championship, beating Chicago. Los Angeles folded, Las Vegas moved back to Cleveland, the league expanded to Chicago (Wildcats), San Antonio (Vaqueros) and Vancouver (Legion) to get back to 16 teams.
