That’s right, we’ll be taking our first snap this June! But, before we get to that, we need your help, fans, in building your teams! For our inaugural “pre-season,” you’ll have opportunities to get involved in player scouting in preparation for our first-ever fan-run draft in May. And, very soon, you’ll be able to select which of our eight teams you’d like to make your own, and then work with your fellow fans to create your team brand, from the name to the logo, to even an “official team cheer!”
Step one: We’d like you to begin virtually scouting for us! Some top-flight potential players will be playing over the next couple of weekends in the following games:
East-West Shrine Game which is scheduled to be broadcast January 19 (2:30 pm ET / 11:30 am PT) on NFL Network
NFLPA Collegiate Bowl which is scheduled to be broadcast January 19 (5 pm ET / 2 pm PT) on FOX Sports One (FS1)
Reese’s Senior Bowl which is scheduled to be broadcast January 26 (2:30 pm ET / 11:30 am PT) on NFL Network
If you are ready to start scouting virtually, all you’ll need to do is pre-register for our Virtual Front Office,* and we’ll send you a scouting form to complete, along with directions on how to scout offensive and defensive players, which you can use for either or both games. All fans who submit completed scouting forms (which report on at least one offensive player and one defensive player) will receive their first month free of the basic Virtual Front Office (VFO) subscription AND be eligible to win ONE randomly selected FREE premium membership to the VFO for the 2019 Season! Just sign up here to Scout the Seniors, and select “I’m Scouting Virtually” from the drop down menu to receive your materials.
If you’d like to step it up to the next level and scout potential FCFL players in person, all our fans are invited to attend any of our remaining upcoming Scouting Combines. All you need to do is register here and let us know which one you’re interested in. Space varies at each facility, so sign up ASAP to reserve your spot!

We’ve been working hard behind the scenes to get things teed up, but now it’s on you, fans, to get it done. We are excited for how great we know you are going to be. We’ll get your beloved weekly newsletter back up and running from our holiday hiatus soon, but in the meantime, keep checking these periodic updates to keep up to date on all that is the FCFL!
*The Virtual Front Office (VFO) is a multi-tiered subscription service that offers access to exclusive content, behind the scenes access, and additional voting and decision-making opportunities. More details on the tiers available and related benefits will be coming soon!
