About the National Gridiron League

The National Gridiron League is an American Arena Football League scheduled to begin play in May 2020. It has 12 teams situated in the South and Midwest.

About Arena / Indoor Football

Indoor Football, also known as Arena Football was developed in 1986 as an 8v8 form of Indoor American Football. After an initial few seasons where the game was developed with a 4 team league, a full seasons League with eventually over a dozen teams was developed in the 1990 which was considered by the Wall Street Journal to be a fifth major.

The Arena Football League over-expanded in the 2000s with a Minor League, and its importance (and number of teams) waned since it first experienced financial diffulties  in 2009, and it ceased operations after the 2019 season due to the legacy debt incurred.

There is now, however, Indoor Football Leagues all over America, all of which would now be considered Minor League or Semi-Pro (AAA, AA, or even A)

Indoor Football is played on a 50-yard field with two 8-yard endzones, and teams have 5 downs (attempts) to reach the endzone or the ball is turned over. 3 of those downs must be passing plays, making Indoor Football highly explosive and high scoring.

The main difference between Arena Football & Indoor Football is the rebound nets either side of the goalposts in Arena Football, which is the only part of the original patent given to the Arena Football League in 1989, that a subsequent ruling in 1998 ruled was copyright, the rest being Football already in other leagues.

Possible Future American Football Leagues

Poll

The possibility of a Professional Irish American Football Team has been around since the 1980s when American Football was first shown on Channel 4 & RTE 2. The first Irish American Football League season took place in 1986. So, where and when (and if) do people think there will be a Pro team in Ireland.

The possiblities as far as Eirball can see are a team in the National Football League (XFC Conference – Green), World Football League (World Conference – Orange or International Conference – Black), a team in the European Football League (Azure) or a team in either the Indoor Football League (Indoor Conference – Pink or Legends Conference – Purple). So which would people prefer?

Other than those options there is the outside possibility of a team in the Freedom Football League (Minority Ownership – Irish Travelers if it goes World) or Trinity Football League (Christian).
