The Simulation Football League announced officially Tuesday critical details for the off-season, highlighted by an increased roster size to 17 players.

“We are thrilled to take on this massive growth from our historically successful 13th season,” said Commissioner Cameron Irvine. “2020 will be a year to remember in SFL history as we continue to build out the depth in our teams and organization and put another step forward in maximizing this league’s potential.”

The Rookie Draft will have three rounds, the first round requiring all 20 organizations to participate. Round One will be broadcast live on television on set in the Boston, Massachusetts area. A large panel of owners, players and league staff will be on hand for the event, that will also include a Season Preview and features from around the league. Participants will include:

Ray Bentley (Mexico City Running Back), Mark Chisholm (Atlanta Team Owner), Chris Curtis (Queen City Wide Receiver), Mike Daggs (Director of Broadcasting), Eddie Gauge (Arizona Team Owner), Andy Hamilton (Vancouver Team Owner), Cameron Irvine (SFL Commissioner), Jonny Pichler (Rookie), Andrew Rastelli (Director of Player Personnel) and Josh Vasquez (Denver Defensive Back).

“We are so excited for this event and feel it is a milestone achievement for our great league,” Irvine said. “To have all of these guys contributing to a live television show that will promote the SFL ahead of our Winter 2020 season is a huge opportunity. It will allow these teams to expose their brand to new fans of the league and will provide us the quality of program we always strive to produce.”

The Salary Cap is set for 1275 in Season 14. Rounds 2 and 3 of the draft will air on the league’s Twitch network the following week. The off-season schedule has been released and can be found below:
