With two weeks left in the regular season the Arena Football League announced a change to its postseason format.
Rather than the previous plan of having the conference champions given the top two seeds, but the remainder of the eight teams being seeded regardless of conference, there will be a straight Conference Championship system.
It actually aligns closely with the possible matchups and makes geographic sense. For Tampa Bay it simplifies things: the Storm will play the American Conference champion, which will be whoever wins between Orlando and Philadelphia in their July 30 regular season finale.
Both teams are 12-3 while Tampa Bay is 1-13 with two games remaining.
