MLFB HOLDS LEAGUE MEETING IN AUSTIN, TEXAS
Developmental Spring Football League set to meet in the Lone Star State
HUNTINGTON BEACH, CA – Major League Football, a professional football developmental league, will play their inaugural season in Spring 2018. Led by President/CEO Jerry C. Craig, Major League Football is holding its initial league meetings at the Renaissance Hotel in Austin, Texas. Meetings were held this week to determine the future of the budding league.
The league’s objective is to be a developmental league that services professional football leagues in North America. The MLFB is geared to developing players that would like to continue their dreams of playing professional football.
“We see this as an opportunity to feed the nation’s thirst for football,” Craig said. “We look to give players the tools they need to improve their craft, receive professional development and get a look at continuing their dreams of playing professionally.”
Teams will be made up of players who were recently released from NFL camps. The league will hold the first draft in early 2018 to fill their first-year rosters.
The league is committed to providing players with development from former NFL coaches Dave Campo, Ted Cottrell, Galen Hall, Larry Kirksey and Robert Ford to name a few that have committed to the league’s development.
MLFB will play its initial season in eight metropolitan areas around the United States. Locations will be voted on in Austin this week and will be announced at a later date.
