There was no official league in British American Football in 1984, with teams arranging their own schedules. Some played one or two games and disappeared as quickly as they were formed, while others played a whole season.

The top 5 teams in the country at the time, London Ravens, Northampton Stormbringers, Milton Keynes Bucks, Manchester Spartans and Poole Sharks organised a regular series of games amongst themselves, as well as playing other opposition. Their record against each other as well as their total record is shown here.
