The American Football Association(AFA) has announced the launch of a crowdfunding campaign that aims to support minor league athletes. The goal of this campaign is to raise $25,000 which will be used to provide recognition to the hard-working athletes at the AFA’s Annual Hall of Fame Induction on 22nd of June, 2018 at the Pro Football Hall of Fame. The event will be made live on Facebook as well as on the official website of American Football Association. The organization invites generous individuals and sports enthusiasts from all over the globe to contribute to the fundraiser and support the athletes.
The American Football Association(AFA) is a non-profit corporation that works towards the advancement and promotion of semi-pro/minor league football teams and leagues in the United States. Founded in 1980 by Ronald J. Real, as Minor Professional Football Association (MPFA), its main function was to conduct an annual post-season championship tournament for teams calling themselves minor league. In the first year of its establishment, five leagues joined the national association and sent their league champions to play in the first national playoff series ever conducted on this level of football.
“The American Football Association remains committed to our mission to keep alive the memories of those who have played, coached, officiated and managed at our level of the game. Our ongoing objective is one of ensuring that semi-pro/minor league football participants are remembered forever by their fans, family, teammates and those who follow their football leadership in the future”, reads the campaign description.
This is why they created this fundraiser to support all the players in the “Minor League Football” and acknowledge them in the upcoming AFA event, the Annual Hall of Fame Induction on 22nd of June, 2018 at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, OH. The team appreciates all kinds of donations, big or small from the contributors. More information about the American Football Association can be found on their official website.
