About the AWFC
The American West Football Conference is a AA Indoor American Football League which started playing in the American Northwest in 2019 to fill in the gap in Professional Indoor Football League on the West Coast (San Diego, Arizona & Oakland have teams in the Indoor Football League but that is primarily a Mid-West League).
About AA American Football
AA American Football is the 3rd Level of Professional American Football. Since 2000 it has been exclusively Arena / Indoor Football Leagues, playing 8v8 Football. The AA Football Map is divided into 4 regions since the 1930s and in 2019 it consisted of the National Arena League (East), Champions Indoor Football (South & Prairie States), Indoor Football League (Mid-West & Southwest) and in 2019 the American West Football Conference (Northwest) became the fourth regional AA Arena / Indoor Football League in the United States, replacing the American Arena League which had lasted one season on the East Coast.
About Arena / Indoor Football
Indoor (also known as Arena) Football plays an 8 v 8 version of American Football on a converted Ice Hockey Rink 50-yards long with 2 10 -yard endzones. Teams have 5 downs (attempts) to score or the ball is turned over – 3 of which must be passing plays. It is therefore a higher scoring game than standard 11 v 11 American Football. The main difference between Arena Football and Indoor Football is that there is no rebound net either side of the goalposts in Indoor Football. Arena Football rules allow the ball stay in play when it comas back off the rebound nets.
