Due to the unexpected number of sign ups, tourney format and captain selection is still being discussed by committee. Stay tuned for an update on both in the next week.

We'd also like to present two great opportunities to get involved in our tournament for everyone, including your family/friends/others interested:
1. A unique sponsorship - please contact us for more information regarding all the different ways MFL could promise to provide exposure for any brand, product or service.
2. Volunteering and participation - whether someone just likes to help out or they have a passion for the game of football, we could use hands (outside of the players) in ensuring this tournament's success.
Refer those you know to contact us ASAP.

We recommend everyone NOT buy plane tickets until you are drafted on a team as it is likely some players will not be drafted (in which case they will receive a refund). If you must buy a ticket soon, please buy a refundable one.

Team Creation
 
We are holding this exhibition so that we can evaluate talent for the upcoming annual MFL Tournament in 2019 and most importantly have a fun and competitive day.

Games will be played with MFL rules (please see changes in red). Our goal is to maximize the number of games played within a short amount of time and have players play with different teammates. Each participant will play at least three games. Schedules will be posted prior to play. Game clock will have hard start times. Those with the most wins and best stats will earn honors of being the top players.

Teams will be made randomly based on talent tiers. We hope to get all on time registrants a spot in the exhibition matches, however in order for everyone to get a good amount of playing time, we will cap registration.

Finally, Houston will pit its stars against Dallas in the main event showdown at 11am. And with the Dallas Cowboys playing on  Sunday Night Football along with the Houston Texans on a bye, there is time after 12pm for extra play. More football always equals more fun!

Weather Disclaimer
We will be playing outdoors and plan to play through most weather conditions. Conditions during the month of November in Dallas should be good, however, we cannot control the weather so if there is severe weather, we may have to cancel the tournament, in which case registration fees will be partially refunded. Otherwise, fees are non-refundable unless you are a cap casualty.
