Football is back!! Kind of… The Fan Controlled Football league is here. With the league’s inaugural season starting soon, fans of football have a chance to bask in football for six more weeks. The league currently features four teams, Glacier Boyz, Wild Aces, Beasts and Zappers.
What is the Fan Controlled Football League?
The Fan Controlled Football League was created in 2017. The league is played exactly how it sounds. Fans of the sport are able to tune in and put their voice in for all of the important aspects of the team, including plays. Think of a real life Madden game. The game is played in a seven on seven format, where teams only need 50 yards to score.
There are two 20 minute halves with a running clock. A one-minute warning acts like a two-minute warning in the NFL, with the clock stopping following first downs and incompletions. There are no goal posts, so the league got creative for extra point attempts. Extra points are a one on one battle between a wide receiver and a defensive back. Fans will choose the receiver and the defensive back. Then the quarterback will have three seconds to throw the ball. Fans will choose either a one point conversion from the five yard line or a two point conversion from the ten yard line.
