Season Format

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.

History

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. In 2037 the Sarasota Sailfish joined the conference as the third expansion team. In the most recent expansion in 2040 the Berlin Fire Salamanders joined the conference as the fourth expansion team.

The first title was won by the Colorado Yeti. After that, we had a period of back to back titles: Baltimore Hawks (2017, 2018) followed by the Yellowknife Wraiths (2019, 2020) and Philadelphia Liberty (2021, 2022). Yellowknife won one more NSFC Championship in 2023. Starting in 2024, the Hawks completed the first-ever four-peat in NSFC history, winning the conference championship every year from 2024 to 2027. The Sarasota Sailfish are the current champions of the NSFC, this is their first title.
