The A7FL is American tackle football with a unique format (7-on-7 without helmets or pads) that combines fast-paced excitement for the fans with added safety for players. As planning for its sixth season continues, the league boasts 20 teams from New Jersey to San Diego and a large fan base across social media.

It's 100% passion, that’s what makes our game so exciting to watch.”
