About USAFE Football
This page is dedicated to the United States Air Forces Europe (USAFE) Football League (1946 - 1993). The league was established after World War II as entertainment for military personnel and their dependents stationed in Europe before American football became popular in Europe. Also a factor was the unavailability of American Football games on television especially in England. This league was also the pre-cursor to the World Football League and NFL Europe. You might say the USAFE Football league introduced American Football to many Europeans.
I don't claim to be the resident expert on the league, there is very little information on the Internet about the league, hopefully that will change with the creation of this web site.
I have received feedback and e-mails from ex-USAFE participants while searching for information about the league and hitting this web site. All comments and suggestions are welcome !! I played for the RAF Alconbury Spartans and US Air Force base near Huntington, CAMBS, England during the 1985 and 1986 seasons. I played running back and some fullback and wore # 41
This site is for everyone, ex-players, coaches, officials and fans of USAFE football. As word spreads, I hope this site will grow into the main source for pictures and information on the web relating to USAFE football.
Enjoy the USAFE Football web site and spread the word!
