Report

The American Patriot League was founded in 2018 by the World Professional Football Association with the intention of starting an 8-team spring league, with teams playing a 14-game regular season, followed by three rounds of playoffs culminating in the Championship game, to be held in the city of Canton, Ohio, where the National Football League was founded in 1920.

The teams were to be in Daytona Beach (Florida), Mobile (Alabama), Houston (Texas), Shreveport (Louisiana), Sacramento (California), Canton (Ohio) and Ypsilanti (Michigan) with an eighth team to be announced as of 5 June 2020. Teams were to be arranged in two Divisions: Liberty and Freedom.

There had been no updates on the site or social media since a post on Facebook on January 18, 2019, announcing teams 5 and 6 (Houston and Canton). The management team included former NFL Players Bob Golic (13 years NFL) and Marques Ogden (5 years NFL).
