About Dead Football League

The Barcelona Dragons. The William Hambrecht Trophy. The opening scramble. These are names of things that don't mean much to most football fans, and that's the reason they're not around anymore. Every few years, a brand new American football league starts. A few years after that, the circuit goes bankrupt and disappears forever.

But none ever really serves as a cautionary tale for the next one. There will always be a next one, and another one after that. Good thing there's an eternal shrine to these lost and forgotten circuits. It's called Dead Football League.

The DFL Archive contains season, team and player statistics for over 200 Dead Football teams from 1974 to 2020. The Dead Football Museum contains over 4,000 photos, trading cards, newspaper clippings and ticket stubs. You can even add your own. There's a 24/7 Dead Football Network that streams games from the USFL, XFL, NFL Europe and Arena League. There's also a periodic patron-only newsletter full of great interviews and nostalgic stuff. DFL is awesome.

DFL can't be awesome without you. Let's all create an eternal shrine to Dead Football, together. 🏴
