According to the report, UCF was never paid the $1 million owed by the AAF for the Apollos' rental of Spectrum Stadium this season. It was also reported that UCF never sent an official invoice to the AAF requesting the funds.
It is unclear, according to the report, if staff and vendors will be paid after being terminated by the league.
The AAF lasted just eight weeks into its inaugural season before the league made the decision to suspend operations on Tuesday.
The Apollos were one of only a few teams with strong attendance numbers this season, averaging about 20,000 fans per game. They also held the best record in the AAF at 7-1 and had already earned a spot in the playoffs.
The issues for the league date back to just a few weeks into the season when Carolina Hurricanes owner Tom Dundon made a $250 million investment into the AAF and became the league’s chairman after it nearly missed making payroll in the second week.
The Apollos had their own issues, having to move training from Camping World Stadium in Orlando to Georgia at the beginning of March due to worker’s compensation laws in Florida.
Dundon was also reportedly attempting to strike a deal between the AAF and the NFL Players Association, which would have seen the AAF obtain young NFL players and become a developmental league.
As a result of the league's demise, Dundon will also lose around $70 million, according to The Action Network's Darren Rovell.
