About Passball

Passball was an Arena-style American Football League in 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. Teams are seven-a-side [Ref: 3]
