Report

The National Football League folded the NFL Europe League after 17 years in 2007 to focus on promoting the NFL in Europe through the International Series of Games in London, with the intention of putting a team there by 2022.

In this second scenario for World American Football, a number of teams break away from the NFL due to some controversy (such as allowing Women players – a female kicker has been training with the Colts recently), and form their own league, moving to countries outside the United States e.g. Rome Cardinals, London Ravens, Paris Bengals, Toronto Bills, Mexico City Browns, and are joined by new teams in America (The World Football League uses old WFL team names from the 1970s: The Hawaiians, Southern California Sun etc).

Two Conferences are created: the International Conference and World Conference. The teams named above are placed in the International Conference, and World Conference includes the Atlantic Claymores (Dublin-Glasgow), Stockholm Nordic Vikings, Delhi Defenders, Cape Town Lions, and old “Outlaw” league teams, Providence Steamroller, Omaha Mustangs and Austin Texans.

With the creation of the United Football League with the X and United Football Conferences, this leaves 3 Pro American Football Leagues, with 6 Conferences: each having 12 teams.

The Scottish Claymores are resurrected as the Atlantic Claymores (Dublin & Glasgow)
