Is the top team not playing on a 100-yard field?

And what is that for a ranking?

How are the ranked, by what criteria?




I think with the end of NFL-Europe, there is nor professional league outside North America anymore.
I would guess, that German Football League is the best outside NA now.

This year in Mexico two brand new pro leagues emerged.

The LFA (Liga de Futbol Americano) and the LNF ( Liga Nacional de Football Profesional)

The LFA has 6 teams: Mayas, Dinos, Fundidores, Eagles, Condors, and Raptors. Four teams are based in the Mexico City metro area and the others in Monterrey(Northern MX) and Saltillo (Northern MX).

The LNF also has 6 teams: Destructores, Forajidos, Broncos, Jefes, Montañeses and Industriales. All of them located in Northern Mexico, with the city of Monterrey as the league's headquarters.

The source of players is the ONEFA and CONADEIP college leagues.

American Football was way a bigger deal in the past in Mexico.
It is said that in a game between UNAM-IPN in 1972 in the Azteca Stadium. More than 110k witnessed the game.


Here is the complete game:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5r7Rn6IA0c

Not to mention, attendance in Clasicos (UNAM-IPN) and (ITESM-UANL) even today, is 20k at least.

There has been a lot of attempts to create a Pro League. But until this year, it is starting to look like Mexico will finally have a stable PRO League.
There are a lot of cities interested in having a franchise, and some will get games next season. Starting with Mexico City and Monterrey, it will be easier to expand to cities like Saltillo (already has team), Torreon, Queretaro, Puebla, Guadalajara, Toluca, León.
And after that Cities like Tijuana or Chihuahua.

Morocco's first international match vs Neuchatel Knights


The first American Football Africa Cup was held in 2014 in Egypt. Only Morocco and Egypt played. Morocco won and qualified for the world cup. Unfortunately they didn't have enough money to travel to the tournament after the host was changed.

Summarizing the top 20 listed on the previous page:
  • #1 Swarco Raids (Austria 1992)
  • #2 Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns (Germany 1983)
  • #3 New Yorker Lions (Germany 1987)
  • #4 Dresden Monarchs (Germany 1992)
  • #5 Frankfurt Universe (Germany 2007)
  • #6 Kiel Baltic Hurricanes (Germany 1988)
  • #7 Graz Giant (Austria 1981)
  • #8 Amsterdam Crusaders (Netherlands 1984)
  • #9 Berlin Rebels (Germany 1987)
  • #10 Vikings Vienna (Austria 1983)
  • #11 Rhinos Milano (Italy 1977)
  • #12 Saarland Hurricanes (Germany 1982)
  • #13 Panthers Wrocław (Poland 2013)
  • #14 Allgäu Comets (Germany 1982)
  • #15 Carlstad Crusaders (Sweden 1991)
  • #16 Helsinki Roosters (Finland 1979)
  • #17 Koç Rams (Koç Üniversitesi Spor Külübü) (Turkey 2014)
  • #18 Kragujevac Wild Boars (Serbia 2003)
  • #19 London Warriors (UK 2007)
  • #20 Cougars de Saint-Ouen-l'Aumône (France 1989)

Eight German, three Austrian, one each Netherlands, Italy, Poland, Sweden, Finland, Turkey, Serbia, UK and France.

How many of the older teams are close to military bases (e.g. Germany, Italy)?

My suspicion is that this ranking sheds no light on where the NFL will look at an expansion franchise in Europe.

In my town there's a club called Molosses that has reached the national final of the French men's championship in 2014:



They lost 35-34 in what is considered a great final.

Can't say I've been tempted to go and watch them, so far. Maybe if I had more free time I would.

Canada beats the USA for Gold in Harbin, China for the IFAF U19 Championship, 24-6

Since the Championship began, the US has won twice and Canada has won twice. Not bad considering Canadians don't play 4 down US football. We play 3 down Canadian football.

American Football isn't played in Canada. 99.9% of football played in Canada is Canadian Football so it's not appropriate to post them in this thread. The only team I'm aware of that plays American football is Simon Fraser University in Vancouver and they've only been playing the US version for about 10 years.

American Football and Canadian Football used to be the exact same sport in the 1870s (Google McGill - Harvard series) but drifted apart to the point that Canadian and US teams stopped playing each other around 1900. University of Michigan's 2nd game ever was against the University of Toronto in 1879. The last game between the 2 schools was in 1880!

Oh c'mon, is not a big deal, arena football is not "traditional football" and no one is complaining about show arena football pics. I just want to see some college and proffesional canadian football stadiums.

I don't see any issue with posting both variants in this thread, or just rename it to gridiron or something.

I have no problem with a few Canadian posts, but I started the thread to show that American football is played outside the US since we always hear how the sport isn't played outside the US and has no future outside the US. So my idea was to showcase the sports growth in places like Asia, Latin America, and Europe.

That's what I thought. I'll start another thread as I feel it will take away from the intent of your thread and further confuse things regarding the 2 sports. Canadian Football doesn't belong under the heading American Football any more than American Football would belong under the heading Canadian Football. I'll start another thread.

Btw, I agree that American Football has made an impact internationally. Canadian Football, by contrast, is only found in Canada. I doubt anyone plays Canadian Football outside Canada.

The CFL did try and expand into the USA in the 90s.

I forgot about that. I'd be shocked if there are still Canadian Football teams anywhere outside Canada today though. I doubt American Football teams in Europe, Asia, or latin America even know that Canadian Football is a sport despite playing a game that's a close cousin of it.

Btw, we still get Baltimore Stallions fans showing up at the Grey Cup.
