Reasons to Invest

  • REVENUE GROWTH: The A7FL grew 2021 revenues over 19X compared to 2020, driven by the sale of new expansion divisions and increasing media rights fees. That same year, over 880 fans invested more than $694K in our first equity crowdfunding campaign on StartEngine.
  • PARTNERSHIPS: The A7FL continues to expand its reach through multiple media rights distribution partnerships. These include Sinclair Broadcast Group's Stadium Sports Network, boasting a footprint of over 190 broadcast stations and cable networks around the country; international distribution through Triller’s FITE TV; social media exposure to Wave Sports & Entertainment’s 115M followers; and 30k out-of-home locations via Atmosphere TV.
  • LEAGUE EXPANSION: The league sold 5 new divisions for 2022 including Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Cincinnati, Boston & Washington, DC.  2022 marks the A7FL’s 8th Spring season and our 750K+ social media followers watched 20 teams in 9 divisions across the country, and that number is set to grow for the 2023 season.


Overview


Reimagining NFL-Style Action in a High Octane Package

The A7FL’s unique 7-on-7 no-helmets no-pads format reimagines the sport of football and sets us apart from every other league.  Our rules produce high-octane, highlight-reel plays and nail-biting competition which in turn create new stars and favorite teams. Fans can expect the same hard-hitting action they’ve come to know and love about traditional professional football, while the lack of helmets allows them to get close to their new heroes. And players know the A7FL is their league. Win or lose they can express their authentic emotions, and without the head-to-head impacts from helmet-led hits, they can go back to their day jobs on Monday morning.



In 2022, the league is competing in its eighth season and continues to expand rapidly, with 20 teams, 9 divisions, and over 750,000 social media followers. Hailing from top tier sports and sports-adjacent organizations such as the NFL, the UFC, and Red Bull, our executive team - including our notable board of advisors - have launched the A7FL off the ground floor and are now looking to disrupt the multi-billion dollar professional football market with our action-packed league.

The Problem


Football and Other Major Sports Leagues Are Losing Younger Fans

While the NFL remains the most popular and profitable US professional sports league, its fanbase is aging: the median age of an NFL viewer is now over 50, up from 46 in 2006. And that trend shows no evidence of slowing down as eSports have exploded and younger fans are increasingly turning to game streaming platforms like Twitch and YouTube for their competitive entertainment.



Advertisers and networks covet the younger demographics these digital platforms deliver, yet live sports retain the unique ability to drive large, enthusiastic audiences to appointment viewing. And with an increasingly fragmented media landscape, demand from advertisers, as well as the proliferation of new subscription-driven streaming services, have led to massive increases in the value of live sports media rights, including the NFL’s own deals worth $10B+ per year


Yet these numbers belie the existential threats facing the NFL: an aging fan base; declining youth participation rates, in large part due to the perceived threat of long-term brain injury; and the rise of new competition for viewers’ attention.  We believe professional football is at an inflection point, and staying relevant will require a league that combines traditional football’s hard-nosed competition combined with more dynamic, more personalized and safer gameplay.

The Solution


Modernized Professional Football, Same Intense Competition

The A7FL has created a new style of football that highlights the players’ athleticism while maintaining the full-contact, action-packed games that fans crave. By removing helmets and bulky hard shell pads from the game, players avoid most head-to-head contact. Thus football’s most dangerous injuries are significantly reduced while creating an up-close fan and athlete first experience.



We believe our 7-on-7 football is the ideal sports product for the modern era, capturing what younger audiences are missing with current professional football. By narrowing the playing field and structuring the league to emphasize hyper-local rivalries, the A7FL’s in-your-face format creates head-turning highlights and dramatically intensifies the pace of the action. 



Teams compete across the course of a 7-week regular season that normally starts in early April. In June, the 2 best teams in each division face off in a 4-week playoff, culminating with our National Championship in July. During the course of the season, teams from within each city largely compete against one another. This local element of our league increases fan interest, while providing us flexibility and drastically cutting down on travel costs.



In our original raise with StartEngine, we laid out a vision to pioneer a new football format for the digital, online and shareable age. After raising more than $694,000 and in our eighth season, we are thrilled to continue writing that story.


With an average of over 200 million video views per year and record-breaking revenue growth, we believe that it is safe to say that our style of play has proven itself to be unique, electrifying and perfect for the social media landscape.


With the A7FL now firmly established, we have solidified several strong revenue streams. Our current revenue sources include licensing our media rights, adding new divisions/territories, sponsorships, and merchandise & ticket sales. In the future, we also see NFTs and sports betting as significant opportunities that we are actively exploring.

The Market


The A7FL Has Shown Staying Power in the $78B North American Sport Market

The North American sports market has rebounded from pandemic shut downs, eclipsing $78B in revenue in 2021 and it's expected to rise to $83B in 2023. Meanwhile, the global sports market was estimated at $441B in 2021, with a CAGR of 13.5%.

(sourcesource)


North American media rights are estimated to reach nearly $24B in revenue in 2022 as the limited supply and increasing competition from new digital and OTT platforms drives up the price for live sports. The NFL’s new 10-year television/digital deals virtually take them out of any further rights discussions. While the survival of upstart Spring football “NFL lookalike” leagues such as the USFL (Fox) and XFL (ESPN) is in doubt, their existence should help increase non-NFL football’s profile as both new distributors and established broadcasters all look to live sports to provide unique and compelling “appointment” programming to drive viewers to their platforms.

Our Traction


2022 League Expansions & YoY Revenue Growth

After weathering the COVID-19 pandemic, including a 2020 season that was so successful that our COVID protocols were featured in Forbes, as well as a booming 2021 season that grew our revenue by 1,840%, we believe the A7FL has proven it's not just here to stay, it’s ready to flourish. 



*Testimonials may not be representative of the experience of other viewers and are not a guarantee of future performance or success.


In 2021 we expanded from our base in New Jersey and Maryland to Southern California and Orlando, while in 2022 we sold new divisions in Los Angeles, Nevada, Boston, Cincinnati, and Washington, DC.  


Our traction hasn’t gone unnoticed by major companies in the corporate media space. The A7FL is proud of key partnerships we have developed with distributors such as Stadium Sports Network, Fubo Sports Network, FITE TV, WAVE Sports and Entertainment, and Atmosphere TV, all of which have been instrumental in connecting the league with younger audiences.  


This uptick in visibility has grown our average video views to more than 200 million annually, while our social media channels have amassed over 750,000 followers. To capitalize on this growth, the A7FL is currently in the final stages of a development for a dedicated streaming app where fans will be able to watch A7FL highlights and catch A7FL games directly from their devices. This platform is expected to launch in the second half of 2022.


Why Invest


The A7FL is Poised to Become the Future of Tackle Football

The A7FL has created an exciting new football format that appeals to younger viewers, attracts attention online, and drives social media engagement. We believe our unique style gives us a competitive advantage in today's digital environment, and - looking ahead - the league is primed to add many more divisions around the country with talented, high-caliber players eager to continue their careers with a safer alternative to the NFL.


We have already established our staying power. Our leadership team is committed to continuing to grow our revenue channels to fuel our success as we expand our league’s on and offline footprint and disrupt the multi-billion dollar North American sports market.


As our eighth season comes to a close, you have the chance to be a part of the future of football. The A7FL is football for the digital, online, and shareable age.


Join us and grab a piece of the action.

Viral Video Update: Over 11 Million Online Views Plus Broadcasts On ESPN's "Get Up" and On SportsCenter!

21 days ago

The American 7s Football League’s continued growth was showcased last week as ESPN and other major sports media outlets, including Overtime and Jukes, featured an amazing Kason Campbell highlight from A7FL’s Elite Eight playoffs.

This highlight from the contentious Trenton BIC and Vegas Force 2022 playoff matchup was released last week on the A7FL Instagram page and currently is sitting at over 3.3 million views as Kason Campbell’s intense 3-on-1 throw-off return for a touchdown soon became viral across the sports world.

WAVE Media’s JUKES channel, who solely focuses on great football highlights, shared the video on their Instagram and TikTok Channels, where over two million more users watched and interacted with Campbell’s iconic touchdown.

Overtime, a highlight aggregator with over 1.3 million Twitter followers, would pick up the highlight on August 31st, with tens of thousands of views and engagements, along with ex-NFL players Will Blackmon and George Foster engaging and sharing the highlight, where Campbell would defeat three defenders to score on the A7FL’s solution to kickoffs.

ESPN’s SportsCenter Instagram account would release the highlight on their page on Monday, and as of Thursday, the highlight has been witnessed over 6.6 million times.

The WorldWide Leader in Sports would then air the highlight on their GET UP! ! program, airing across the United States multiple times, giving an even larger audience the chance to see why the A7FL is the future of football.

The votes are in! A7FL’s 2022 League MVP is…BIC QB Sterry Codrington!!!

about 1 month ago

As announced on the 3-on-1 podcast, the A7FL 2022 Season award winners came from the two teams that dominated headlines and on the field and were opponents in the A7FL 2022 Championship Game.


The 2022 A7FL Season is quickly fading into our rearview mirror, but before we can focus on 2023, we must first celebrate the players who stood out the most during the eighth American 7s Football League campaign.

Beginning with the league’s most significant honor, Sterry Codrington Jr’s leadership, poise, and performance in his second season made him the clear choice as this year’s Most Valuable Player.

Codrington, his cousin, and fellow Trenton BIC star, Ashante Worthy, ran neck and neck for this honor and the offensive player of the year honor. His output, coupled with the leadership the former defensive back turned Quarterback showed throughout his second season, solidified the decision for the selection committee, along with the fan balloting.

The Road Ahead: The Future Of A7FL 2023 Football Begins Now – A View From Broadcast Announcer Matt Ryan

about 2 months ago

When you prepare for the next A7FL season, whether you’re a producer, analyst, host, or executive, all you have to start with is a blank piece of paper.

By Matt Ryan, A7FL Broadcast Announcer and Producer

For one brief moment, you take a look at that paper, and you see everything that went right and everything that went wrong on that piece of paper. You get a feeling in your bones, at least that’s what I did on the morning of July 11th of this year when I woke up, made a cup of coffee, and realized that the 2022 A7FL Season was over.

Sitting at my desk, drinking a cup of coffee that was too hot for the summer, I stared at that piece of paper. Thinking over every broadcast, every meeting, every second I spent in a car going from my home to the venue and back again. And I smiled cause I get to do it all again in a few months.

But this isn’t a story about the piece of paper covered in ink and what most scientists believe is honey mustard but can’t really trace it, it’s about the blank one I’m staring at right now, for what lies ahead in 2023. FULL STORY HERE

The A7FL 2022 Season Was A Historic One Including Expansion, New Broadcast Partnership, Elevated Game Production and Big Plans For 2023

2 months ago

American 7s Football’s Eighth Season Was Special, With So Much More on the Horizon.

And how could it not be? Following a year when teams from Florida and California joined our ranks, the league was poised to take another expansion further as teams from Nevada, Washington DC, and Cincinnati joined the league.

Whether it was the DC Buzz looking to assert themselves in one of the league’s toughest divisions, including eventual playoff contenders such as the Baltimore Rare Breed and the Baltimore Gators; midwest teams like the QC Crush and the Covington Heist giving the more experienced Florida teams some trouble on the road, or the Vegas Force taking their division in a surprising turn with victories over both the Santa Monica Vibe and the Los Angeles Aces en-route to a Cinderella journey to the Elite-Eight...

...Not only was the season exciting with some “best A7FL game of all time” contenders and highlights that dominated social media, but many more fans were also able to see the league live as our Sunday Games of the Week package moved to Sinclair Broadcast Group’s Stadium Sports Network in the US and was aired on FITE TV internationally.

A7FL Interviewed By DEADSPIN On The Safety Of This No Pads Football League

2 months ago

A7FL on DEADSPIN

There’s a no-pads football league and surprisingly, not everyone is concussed

American 7s changes the ground rules to keep things safer

_________________________________

The A7FL continues to garner media attention around the incredible 7v game, and the fact that NOT using helmets makes this a safer version of American football.

“You watch any of our games, you just see it. Our guys are not hitting head-to-head, not repeatedly hitting head-to-head with subconcussive blows that contribute to what many think causes CTE,” A7FL co-founder CEO Sener Korkusuz told Deadspin this week. “In our game, it just doesn’t happen. But in traditional football, with a helmet on, every single play you’re hitting helmet-to-helmet. head-to-head. Even if it’s not a concussion, those add up over a career and are trouble. At least we’re elevating head safety, moving in the right direction.”

Alex Verardi - Trenton BIC  - With 11 Tackles, 5 Tackles For Loss, and 4 Sacks, Verardi was a force to be reckoned with in the championship. Coming into this season as a rookie, he was on a mission to stop the Paterson U and was highly successful at doing so. 

Sterry Codrington Jr. - Trenton BIC - All the pressure was on Codrington to perform as he had in their undefeated regular season and he delivered. With passing for 219 yards and 2 touchdowns combined with rushing for another 147 yards and 1 TD, he was firing on all cylinders.

A7FL 8th Season Concludes With An Epic Battle Between Two Legacy Teams for the 2022 A7FL Championship


In a highly anticipated rematch of the 2021 title game, the battle between the Trenton BIC and the Paterson U came down to one knee, a thin white line on the turf, and just two points. And in the end, the BIC took home the crown 32-30 in a hard-fought game that put both teams to the test.

After surviving the regular season and playoffs undefeated, the Trenton BIC returned to Asbury Park Stadium on Sunday to do the one thing they were unable to do during their 2021 campaign: defeat the Paterson U with everything on the line. Using a combination of youth and experience, this BIC squad was undefeated going into the Championship, and they relished the chance to put a cherry on top of their perfect season.

The back-to-back Champions from the U came into Sunday’s game with a very different perspective than they were used to - that of an underdog. They suffered their first loss in the last three seasons when they fell to BIC early in the spring and came into the game with something to prove as a second loss to Trenton in the Northeastern Division Championship game gave notice that perhaps their time had passed.

A7FL 2022 Championship Set For Sunday July 10!

3 months ago

The 2022 A7FL Championship Game Between Trenton BIC and Paterson U is a Repeat Matchup From 2021

STADIUM to broadcast this epic rivalry on TV, online, and through their app.

WatchStadium.com/A7FL

>>> Big Announcement Coming The Week of July 4th! <<<

On Sunday the final four of the A7FL featured not only four of the A7FL’s elite teams squaring off for their shot at $25,000 and the A7 Championship but also may have established one team as a potential dynasty in defeat.

Now the stage is set for July 10th, where the U and BIC will meet for the fifth time in two seasons, with the U taking the first two in the 2021 divisional and national championships, and the BIC taking the 2022 showdowns in the regular season and divisional championship game respectively.

Will the BIC win their second championship and prove that they are the new cornerstones of the eight-year-old league, or will the Paterson U be able to prove that they are still the big dogs of the A7FL and that no matter how powerful the offense or intimidating the defense, it’s still “all about the U.”

Watch the A7FL Championship LIVE beginning with a special pre-game show at 3:30 pm et on Stadium and internationally on FITE from Asbury Park Stadium in Asbury Park, New Jersey.  FULL STORY
