The NSFC season format consists of a four-week preseason, a seventeen-week regular season (each team plays 16 games), and a three-team single-elimination playoff culminating in the Ultimus Bowl, the league's championship game.
Both the NSFC and ASFC were created during the inaugural year of 2016. During NSFL season 2 expansion draft one more team joined the NSFC - Philadelphia Liberty. 14 years later in the Season 16 Expansion Draft the conference added the Chicago Butchers.
