FAQ

F.A.Q.

What is the SFL?

The SFL is the premier football simulation league where YOU can be the star on the field or the tactician on the sidelines.  The Stars Players of the SFL have real people behind them, with real personalities and real desires to win.

The SFL game broadcasts have real play-by-play announcers calling the action.  As a player, you can have your name called out during big plays, then can move up the ranks as a scout, coach, and even an owner someday!

How are the games played?

The SFL runs their simulations using All Pro Football 2K8.  Each game is streamed using YouTube or Rabbit.  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 bottom of this site is our Discord widget.  Simply click on the “Join” button, create a Discord account with a verified email address, then post an introduction for yourself in the #introductions channel.  That’s it!

At that point, you will given permissions to post in all basic channels and start to get to know the community.  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.

We also have a job board, which lists any positions that are currently open on any given team.  Feel free to reach out to the owners directly about their posted position openings.

How do I create my player?

Your player is created when you sign with a team, either through an open position in the job board, or by signing as a rookie during the off season.

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. Choosing your position may be dependent on the team you sign with.  Not every team is looking for every position, so generally speaking, you should keep an open mind about your position.  Teams only have 12 star positions available to them, so how they use them is a large part of the team build strategy.

How do I become a coach?

Coaching in the SFL takes commitment, knowledge, and passion.  Owners look for coaches 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, but nothing past 21 teams, which is only 5 more teams than we currently support.  Becoming an owner is a more vigorous process that is generally only available upon applying. Owners pay $50 per season to help pay for all of the things in the SFL that make it the best in the business.
