La British American Football League (BAFL) (Liga Británica de Fútbol Americano en español) fue la competición más importante de fútbol americano en el Reino Unido de Gran Bretaña e Irlanda del Norte hasta 2010. El nombre de esta liga es una marca comercial de la empresa Gridiron Football League Ltd. El 1 de abril de 2010, la empresa entró en un concurso de acreedores y la liga dejó de celebrarse.

La Federación Británica de Fútbol Americano (British American Football Association (BAFA) en idioma inglés), que es el organismo responsable de este deporte en el Reino Unido, organiza desde la temporada 2010 una nueva liga, denominada Ligas Comunitarias de la BAFA (BAFA Community Leagues (BAFACL) en inglés).

Contenido

Composición

La liga consta de 3 divisiones, Premier, BAFL1 y BAFL2. En cada una de ellas se disputa una liga regular, seguida de unos play-offs y una final que deciden el campeón de cada división.

Premier

Los cuatro primeros clasificados de la temporada regular disputan las semifinales que deciden los equipos que pasan a la final. El partido final de la Premier se denomina BritBowl, y su ganador se lleva el Boston Trophy y se proclama campeón de liga. El último clasificado de la Premier desciende a BAFL1.

BAFL1

La BAFL se compone de dos conferencias, la Norte y la Sur. El equipo campeón de la BAFL1 asciende a la Premier, mientras que el último equipo de cada conferencia desciende a la BAFL2.

BAFL2

La BAFL2 se organiza cada temporada en función de las solicitudes de participación que se presenten. Los dos equipos que disputan la final ascienden a la BAFL1.

Historia

La liga se denominó British Senior League (BSL) hasta 2005.
