The NAFL will begin play with 4 teams. The season will be played over the course of four weekends, with four teams hosting the other teams for round robin play. Each team will play the other three teams once per weekend.
The schedule has been made and teams have been plugged into the schedule at random to minimize any advantage. Games will be played spaced across Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of each weekend. The teams will each play 12 regular season games, and the top four teams will advance to the playoffs, which will be held on the final Sunday of the season.
The regular season will start on June 24th, 2022, and the championship game will be played on July 24th, 2022. The weekend of July 8th will be a bye weekend so that all eligible players are available to play for their home countries at The World Games in Birmingham, Alabama.
The league will be played under the rules promulgated by the International Floorball Federation (IFF). All games will consist of three 20 minute periods with clock stoppage on every whistle. Games cannot end in a tie. A 15 second shot clock will be implemented for penalty shots.
