How to Join the AFHL

If you would like to join the AFHL, then you must fill out an application form with your contact information and your answers to some basic questions to make sure you are qualified to play in the AFHL.

After you submit your application form, the AFHL Commissioner will send you an email offering you an AFHL franchise or turning down your application. If you do not receive an email from the Commissioner within 48 hours from the time you sent in your application, then that means you were put on a waiting list. Being put on a waiting list can happen when you meet the AFHL GM requirements, but there are no available franchises. If a franchise becomes available later on, then you may be offered a franchise.

Here are some things you can do to boost your chances of being accepted:

-When answering questions on the application form, mention any additional factors that might help your case. Emphasize your strong desire to join the AFHL and make a case for why you’re a good fit.

-Study hard. Learn as much as you can about the AFHL. Go through the website and read all of the pages. If you’re wait-listed, you may be sent an email in the near future to be interviewed by the Commissioner.

Teams will not be allowed to sign any free agents until AFTER the Entry Draft is completed. Just like last year, we will have a one round Free Agency Draft based on the reverse standings from last year. After that one round then Free Agency will be a free for all.
