This league will focus solely on the Liga de Fútbol Americano Profesional. This is the top American football league being played in Mexico. Participants will choose a city and team name from the Expansion Page on this website. All of the cities are in Mexico and team names are in Spanish.
The league schedule will consist of a regular season that is 8 games long. There will be assigned home and visitor teams for each game. The home team has a built-in scoring advantage.
The post-season is unique. There is not an exact amount of playoff spots. Teams that finish with a .500 or better record will qualify. The top 2 seeds will be the Divisional Winners. The next 2 seeds will be the second place finishers. The playoffs will be a win-and-advance scenerio. Byes will be determined by how many teams qualify for the playoffs. Home-field advantage will still be in play in the postseason.
Because home field advantage exists in our league, head-to-head matchups will not be utilized for tie breakers.

Each week, participants/coaches will pick the winners of all games played that week in LFA. Each LFA team is assigned a salary cap number based on it's place within the LFA standings. Assuming a given week has 5 LFA games, the salary cap will be $30. ($6 x # of games played) A coach must pick 5 winners whose combined salary is $30 or less.
A game's value is determined by each player. A Home Team player will select 2 games to equal 3 points each, 1 games to equal 7 points, and 2 games to equal 10 points. A Visitor Team player will select 2 games to equal 3 points each, 2 games to equal 7 points each, and 1 games to equal 10 points.
The championship game will be unique because it will include all 5 games of the LFA playoffs. Therefore, it will take 3 weeks to determine the result of the championship game. The rules for home team and road team are still in effect. The home team will have the built in 3-point advantage. Players will make their picks week-to-week. No salary cap is in place for the championship round, but each player must pick at least 2 underdogs during the tournament. Players will also need to use strategy because he/she will have to decide when to use their 10 and 7 point picks without knowing the exact matchups the LFA will have the following week.
