June 5, 1982
The Florida Sun head coach, Paul Ballentine, says the league has assumed control of the Sun franchise from Brock Register, who withdrew as owner after the Sun lost to the Alabama Magic.

June 26, 1982
AFA commissioner Roger Gill disbands the Florida Sun franchise and moves the team from Panama City to Lake City, Florida. The team had been on the brink of collapse all year, but Gill made the move when owner Brock Register did not pay the stadium rental for their last home game.

The basis of the new team, still named the Florida Sun, is a Georgia Football League team named the Clayton Knights with a handful of Suns players. Knights general manger, Tom Durden, said Gill called him and asked if they could play this Saturday and perhaps fill in for the remainder of the year. "We've only been practicing a week or so, because our season (in the GFL) doesn't start until 4 or 5 weeks from now."

June 29, 1982
The Roanoke Valley Express ownership and management decide to fold the franchise. Poor attendance and money issues are the culprit.
