The National Passball League in England expanded to 11 teams for 1992, with the Cannock Chase Giants winning 30-29 in one Semi-Final against St. Helens Cardinals. Defending Champions Thunderbolts defeated Snappy Snap Gators 41-39 in another close Semi-Final, but a League investigation was launched into whether they should be allowed play in the Final after it was alleged they had kitted-up more than the 18 players allowed on gameday.
The National Passball League was an Arena-style American Football League in the England, played on a smaller field than a regular American Football field, and with a focus on passing (Passball is played on a 40-yard field with two 8-yard endzones, with five downs or attempts to score, three of which must be passing plays, before the ball is turned over). It is seven-a-side.
