The Los Angeles Avengers have dropped out of the Arena Football League.
The team said on its Web site Monday it "has terminated its participation in the Arena Football League." The AFL suspended operations for this season, but has said it plans to play next year after a reorganization.
"The entire Avengers organization extends heartfelt thanks to the fans who cheered on their team," the team's statement said. "It was their faithful support that kept the Avengers vibrant and energized for nearly a decade."
