through Sunday, August 27, 2017. That amounts to a 149-day season (4 months + 27 days or 21 weeks + 2 days) from the first game in early April through late August at Championship Weekend.
This 2017 season will be the earliest start for any AUDL season, and the 6th AUDL season will end later than any previous AUDL season. The 2017 AUDL season will be its longest in its history. Overall, the AUDL 2017 season will span over 40% (40.8%) of the calendar year.
As a comparison, the 2016 NFL season (September 8 through February's Super Bowl LI) will last 150 calendar days.
