After suspending operations midway through the league’s first season, the Alliance of American Football has filed a petition for bankruptcy, according to Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com.

Based on Wednesday’s filings to a Texas court, the league has about $48.4 million in liabilities—including about $9.6 million owed to creditors—but only about $11.4 million in assets.

The league will file a Chapter 7 bankruptcy, which is the most common form in the United States, per Rothstein, giving it an opportunity to sell assets to pay creditors.
