The BAFANL (BAFA National Leagues) are the primary American football domestic League competition in England, Scotland and Wales. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_0

The League is run by the British American Football Association to coordinate contact football within Great Britain. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_1

The BAFANL is a summer season and begins in April and plays through until August, with Play-off games running into September. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_2

There are currently 70 teams who compete in 12 divisions across three levels of football. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_3

The 12 teams who contest both the two BAFA Premier Division's compete to reach the annual Britbowl final, whereas teams in the second and third level aim to earn promotion to the Division above attempting to reach one of the six regional bowl finals. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_4

The current champions are the London Warriors who won the 2019 Britbowl as well as the Premier Division South, they are also the most successful team having won 6 titles since the League's reformation in its current guise. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_5

The League was formed in 2010 following the collapse of the British American Football League, which had run in a number of different guises since the 1980s. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_6

Previous names of the League were the UKAFL (UK American Football League), the Budweiser League and the BNGL (British National Gridiron League). BAFA National Leagues_sentence_7

From 1998 until 2005 the League was known as the BSL (British Senior League). BAFA National Leagues_sentence_8

Tensions grew between the directors of BAFL and those of the British American Football Association, the governing body throughout 2009 and at the beginning of 2010, BAFL formally, but unconstitutionally, withdrew from BAFA. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_9

This led to uproar from the teams within BAFL, ultimately signalling the end for BAFL as an entity. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_10

The league ceased operations on 1 April 2010 and was replaced by the BAFA Community Leagues for the 2010 season, rebranding in 2011 to become the BAFNL. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_11

Notable players to have come from the BAFANL who have gone on to play in the NFL are Efe Obada, Aden Durde, Jermaine Allen and Marvin Allen. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_12

History BAFA National Leagues_section_0

American football was introduced to the United Kingdom during the early part of the 20th century by American servicemen stationed in the country. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_13

The first recorded match took place on 23 November 1910 at Crystal Palace, London, where a team made up of the crew from USS Idaho defeated their counterparts from USS Vermont 19–0. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_14

During the Second World War, matches were played by American and Canadian servicemen stationed in the UK at venues throughout the country. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_15

This included the 'Tea Bowl' game played at the White City Stadium in 1944, and this was followed by the creation of the United States Armed Forces Europe (USAFE) league in 1946. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_16

This league consisted of teams from American military bases throughout Europe, with one of the league's three conferences made up of teams based in the UK – teams from this conference won the league championship thirteen times until the competition ceased in 1993. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_17

The first teams open to British players were established in 1983, and competition began the following year in the form of a series of one-off games. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_18

The match results were compiled into a 'Merit Table', with teams playing more than three games eligible for the championship—the first champions were the London Ravens, who won all ten of their matches. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_19

Tensions grew between the directors of British American Football League and those of the British American Football Association, the governing body throughout 2009 and at the beginning of 2010, BAFL formally, but unconstitutionally, withdrew from BAFA. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_20

This led to uproar from the teams within BAFL, ultimately signalling the end for BAFL as an entity. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_21

The league ceased operations on 1 April 2010. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_22

The league was replaced by the BAFA Community Leagues for the 2010 season. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_23

This organisation, run under the umbrella of the governing body, rebranded in 2011 to become the BAFA National Leagues. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_24

Hundreds of clubs have since been formed, playing both full contact football and flag football at senior, university and youth level. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_25

Many of these clubs have since folded, renamed or merged with other local teams, but a few of the older clubs survive today. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_26

Season format BAFA National Leagues_section_1

The BAFANL season format consists of two Conferences, the Northern Football Conference (NFC) and Southern Football Conference (SFC), within each Conference there are three levels of competition starting at Premier Division and filtering down to Division's One and Two. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_27

Teams can be switched between the NFC and SFC depending on the geographic location of each teams at the beginning of the season. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_28

In the past when Division One has been loaded with teams from the middle of England there has been a designated Midlands Football Conference (MFC), although this is currently defunct. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_29

The current format consists of a ten-game season for Premier Division teams and First Division teams, with the Second Division now playing eight games. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_30

The League is a summer sport in the UK and runs opposite to the NFL, with teams beginning pre-season training in January to compete in the regular season that takes place between April and August. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_31

The play-off games usually running into September, with the finals taking place towards the middle of the month. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_32

Following the climax of the regular season, the eventual winners and runners-up from both Premier Division's make up the semi-final in which they will compete to win a place in the Britbowl. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_33

Since 2014, The Britbowl winners will automatically qualify to play in the IFAF Europe Champions League for the following season. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_34

European games run aside the clubs domestic season, prior to 2014 qualification was for the EFAF Cup. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_35

Unlike American Football competitions in North America such as the NFL, NCAA and CFL, American Football in the UK runs a similar promotion and relegation format to that of Association football (soccer) in the United Kingdom. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_36

Teams from the First and Second Division aim to win promotion to the division above by attempting to reach their respective play-off final. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_37

The team that finishes bottom of their Division {excluding Division Two) are relegated to their relevant Regional division in the level below. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_38

Although there is no active on-the-field promotion process to Division Two, there are a number of Non-League sides who operate in the "Associate Process" that are active but instead of playing to win promotion to the League they must gain entry by application to the British American Football Association in which each applying team must meet a number of different criteria from playing a number of assessed exhibition games, sustainability, facilities and good coaching practice. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_39

BAFA have the ability to relegate any BAFANL team back to Associate Status if that club are failing to make the standard expected of them. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_40

If a team withdraw from the season but indicate their wish to continue operating then they will spend the following season at Associate level. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_41

The game itself is run following the latest NCAA rules, this has been in practice since the 2005 season. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_42

There is currently no limit on Roster size, unlike the NFL's 53 man setup. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_43

Unlike the majority of European leagues, British American football is currently amateur as opposed to semi-professional. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_44

Clubs largely operate and turnover financially through sponsorship and player subscriptions. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_45

Where as it is not currently illegal for a team to pay a wage to coaches, they are forbidden from paying a wage to players. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_46

Players currently have to pay a yearly fee to BAFA as well as contributing to the club they play for, regardless of stature or whether the player has been a professional elsewhere. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_47

The transfer window for players being allowed to move teams usually opens in October and closes midway through the season in July. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_48

Transfers are all handled through an online portal registration system in which the player requests the move and has to wait for both teams to accept the deal before finalisation is sent to BAFA. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_49

Media coverage BAFA National Leagues_section_2

The Britbowl as well as the Divisional Play-off finals are live streamed on YouTube via and Onside Productions. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_50

The programmes feature in-game commentary and interviews. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_51

Onside began operating by streaming Nottingham Caesars games coined as "Caesars TV" in 2016 before being brought on by to broadcast the National finals as well as Great Britain national American football team games BAFA National Leagues_sentence_52 is the largest British American Football-focused media outlet and community hub, featuring news, league results and standings for all formats of the contact game, as well as opinion articles and editorials. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_53

Their social media pages represent the largest online community of British American Football players and fans. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_54

In 2019, Onside provided the livestream of the U19 Junior National Championship and BritBowl XXXIII for BBC Sport. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_55

Stadiums BAFA National Leagues_section_3

The use of Stadiums in the BAFANL is sporadic due to most clubs running on a budget that relies heavily on sponsorship and subscriptions. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_56

Most BAFANL clubs operate from Rugby Union clubs, University or High Schools sports fields or local athletics parks, however some teams do play inside larger sports stadiums which have seating capacities for spectators. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_57

The Britbowl itself has recently been played at Allianz Park in London and the Sixways Stadium in Worcester, while Division 1 and 2 finals are often hosted at the South Leeds Stadium. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_58

At present the Halton Spartans ground share of the Select Security Stadium with Rugby league team Widnes Vikings constitutes as the highest capacity stadium within the BAFANL with 13,350 seats. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_59

Other prominent stadiums that are currently in use in Britball include Manchester Titans home field at the National Speedway Stadium. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_60

Notable stadiums that have been used in the past includes Doncaster Mustangs use of the Keepmoat Stadium, London Olympians former home at the Crystal Palace Athletics Stadium, the AJ Bell Stadium by the Manchester Titans and De Montfort Park by Leicester Falcons. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_61

Teams BAFA National Leagues_section_4

There are currently 70 teams in the BAFANL who have full membership status. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_62

Over the years many teams have formed and folded with only a small handful of original teams from the early 1980s remaining. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_63

A lot of teams trace their heritage back through predecessor teams and a large number of BAFA sides have changed their identity on one or sometimes two occasions. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_64

Colchester Gladiators (formed in 1983) of Division Two are the oldest team to be operating in their original identity. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_65

Other original sides include the Birmingham Bulls, Chester Romans, Nottingham Caesars, East Kilbride Pirates and the Crewe Railroaders. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_66

Although the London Olympians are the most successful British side, the London Warriors hold the title following on from the BAFANL's official formation in 2010. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_67

Premier Division BAFA National Leagues_section_5

The BAFANL Premier Division for the 2020 season comprises twelve teams, split into the North and South Divisions. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_68

The BAFA Premier Division North and the BAFA Premier Division South. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_69

Within each division each team plays each other twice. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_70

There will be 2 rounds of playoff football with the top ranked team in the North will host the second ranked team in the South whilst the top ranked team in the South will host the second ranked team in the North. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_71

The winners will then compete for the BritBowl. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_72

The team who finishes bottom of each division are relegated to Division 1 for the following season and are replaced by both of the Division 1 winners. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_73

Teams can be swapped between the North and South Division's for a following season depending on the geographical location of teams that may be promoted to the division. BAFA National Leagues_sentence_74
