For the 2017-’18 Major League Footy Premiership Season, new and development teams (Memphis (FL) Tuskers, San Antonio (FL) Stampeders, Greater Northern Philadelphia AAC, Miami Saints, Ft. Myers Bushrangers, Pittsburgh Blackbirds, Western Shrikes and Florida Redbacks – as well as competing visiting teams – will battle in Elite Series matches, fighting for a chance at promotion for the 2018-’19 campaign.

Sides competing in the 2018 Elite Series play a lesser number of league matches than ‘First Division’ clubs, while still earning points on the ladder.

Mid-season ‘friendly’ matches may be added during January 2018. Friendly matches do not factor in the MLF Season Ladder.

First Division sides will participate in the 2nd Major League Footy Winter Draft, Friday, November 10, selecting from a list of registered players.

Elite Series clubs are open to all interested and eligible players, and may be assigned based on roster allocation needs and/or player preference.
