JACKSONVILLE, MIAMI DEBUT IN MLF FOR ’18
The 2018 Major League Footy Eastern Conference schedule is packed with 40 head-to-head matches, highlighted by home and away series between the upstart Miami Saints and both the St. Petersburg Swans and Clearwater Kangas.

Major League Footy is an independent league of 9-a-side Australian Football played on an American football (gridiron) field.
Competition is based on head-to-head play, rather than tournament-style events.
The Major League Footy ladder is based on 4-points for each win, with playoff finals featuring the top four clubs based on won-loss and percentages.
Other highlights include two ‘State of Origin’-style matches featuring the Pittsburgh Blackbirds and Greater Northern Philadelphia, both including Pennsylvania-born players representing the Keystone State.
The full Major League Footy Western Conference schedule will be released March 26, highlighted by a St. Petersburg Swans visit to Los Angeles, Saturday, August 25th.
The Los Angeles side will be stocked with a player list of NFL-level athletes new to footy at the 2018 MLF Los Angeles Player Combine, June 3 at Jackie Robinson Stadium in Los Angeles.
