Join The SFL

How Does It Work?

HOW ARE THE GAMES PLAYED?

The SFL runs their simulations using All Pro Football 2K8. Each game is streamed using YouTube or Twitch. We are also featured on Next Level Sports, which is avilable through cable/satellite providers across the United States! Our broadcasters watch and call the game live with you!

Coaches submit their custom playbook, slimming down over 5,000 plays into 4 quarters of gameplanning.

HOW DO I GET INVOLVED?

At the top of our website, you’ll see a ‘create a player’ button. That will tell you all you need to know about joining the league and starting your journey.

Once you’ve joined our Discord server, if you want to have a player in the league, you’ll need to purchase a subscription. Once that’s done, you will be able to claim a position and will be placed on a Minor League team – where all players get their start. Owners can reach out to you, or you can see the list of owners online in the member list and contact them about any open positions.

Feel free to reach out to the owners directly about their posted position openings.

HOW DO I CREATE MY PLAYER?

Once you have claimed your position and are assigned a team, you’ll be able to improve your player each week through our Player Portal on our website. Ping the SFLBot in Discord for account information.

Your player equipment, name, number, skin tone and other basic appearance features are all up to you! Depending upon when you sign and who you sign with, height/weight, player abilities, position may be unable to change or match your top preference.

HOW DO I BECOME A COACH?

Coaching in the SFL takes commitment, knowledge, and passion. Owners look for coaches who are willing to dedicate the time to watching film, studying strategies of opponents and helping develop game plans. Coaches are typically players who at least have a season under their belt and have an understanding of the strategy necessary to win games.

HOW DO I BECOME AN OWNER?

 

The SFL is still considering further expansion in future seasons and the option re-evaluated during every season.  An announcement will be made to the community if expansion is going to occur and explaining the process. Becoming an owner is a more vigorous process that is generally only available upon applying. Owners pay $180 per season to help pay for all of the things in the SFL that make it the best in the business.  Owners of current teams may also sell their teams to new owners if they wish, at which time an announcement will be made to the community opening the application process to any interested parties.
