The IFAF is the official governing body of the world's most popular sport, and is headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. A member of the U.S. Soccer Federation, the IFAF is the second-most powerful governing body in the world behind FIFA. How To Become A Member The IFAF is an amateur organization, meaning that its members are allowed to play in tournament games only. Membership amounts to a one-year contract with a stipulation that the member pay a one-time membership fee of $20 (US) per year. The member then owes a monthly fee of $1,000 (US) to the IFAF and another $1,000 (US) to the federation to cover administrative costs.
Each member is allowed to register a single team (three players) on their local field for a total of three (3) teams. All of these competitions are sponsored by the National Football League (NFL), which is owned by the NFL's parent company, the St. Louis Rams. When the NFL won its first championship in 1960, the NFL spent $13 million to erect a 60-foot-tall bronze statue of its founder, Roger Staubach. The NFL's corporate sponsors are the only ones to pay for the 75-yard-long, $1.5 million "super-stadium" that will be the home of the Rams' new stadium. The NFL has paid for the construction of stadiums for the Chicago Bears (from 1961-85), Minnesota Vikings (1986-88) and Oakland Raiders (1993-present).
In 1996, after pro football's first riot in a professional game (a 2010 game in Kansas City), the NFL suddenly decided to stop paying out the $1.25 million it was owed to the Baltimore Ravens. The U.S. National Team competes in the IFAF World Championship every year, and the U.S. Men's National Team also participates in the U-19 World Championships. The U.S. Men's National Team won the 2006 and 2008 IFAF World Championship gold medals. The U.S. National Team won the IFAF Women's World Championship gold medal the same year. The International Football Association Board, the governing body of the game in the United States, is made up of the IFAF and FIFA, which is the world governing body of soccer. The IFAF is the world's governing body of football, and FIFA is the world governing body of soccer for women's soccer. The World Cup is held annually in South Africa, but the IFAF is responsible for organizing all of the tournaments that are held there. IFAF also runs the annual All Star Bowl, which is the best-of-five final between two teams from the U.S. and Canada.
The winner is then crowned the IFAF World Football Championship Champion. "It's always nice to have a championship game," said IFAF vice president and general manager Jim Papadopoulos. "It's a game of football, and it's a game of two great teams that have a lot of great players. It's an important game." The first game was played in 1953. "The IFAF is very proud of it and I think it's just a great game and a great tournament," Papadopoulos said. "It's the game of the decade, and it's a game of the future." The IFAF is preparing for the 2020 edition of the tournament, which will be played in Sydney, Australia.
