The season was originally cancelled on February 24, 2000, due to an antitrust suit filed by the Arena Football League Players Association against the league stemming from player complaints that league owners have conspired to withhold free agency, health benefits and higher salaries. On March 1, 2000, the league re-opened its season when the Players' Union came to a collective bargaining agreement with the league.
