About Across Football League 7s

Across Football League 7s (A7FL) is an American football league that plays with a 7-on-7 format, with no helmets or pads. The league was founded in 2014 and has teams in the United States and Canada.

The A7FL is designed to be a more fast-paced and exciting version of football than traditional 11-on-11 football. The lack of helmets and pads makes the game more dangerous, but it also allows for more aggressive play.
