2018 began the player progression era, where league players could improve their player from week to week for the first time. The league grew to a record 18 teams with the additions of Indianapolis (Red Devils), London (Knights), Tulsa (Desperados) and San Francisco (Sharks), the latter led by Moats who elected to resign from his league office post to run his own team. The league elected to move on from Cleveland and Baltimore Crabs folded due to time constraints. Tallahassee became the second team to finish 12-0 in the regular season but like Louisville, were dethroned by the Alaska Storm, who won its first title, beginning an unprecedented run of dominance. The Championship Game was the first game to be broadcasted live on location at new league partner, MediaTech Institute. The league hosted Shapes and Forms, a graphic design company from California who does work for networks across the country, who was interested in rebranding the SFL – but ultimately the two entities did not strike a deal.
