What can I expect from American Flag Football League gameplay?The rules for AFFL play were created for maximum excitement and are likely a little different from the football you have seen played in other places. Major rule differences include a roster reduction to 12 players with only seven players allowed on the field at one time. There is also no blocking or tackling in the AFFL. The field is divided into four zones that are 25 yards each in length. A first down is earned when an offense is able to move the ball from one zone into the next. Teams are awarded six points for any touchdown on a play that covers 50 yards or less. A touchdown on a play that travels more than 50 yards earns seven points. A successful point-after attempt earns between one and three points based on the distance chosen by the scoring team.
