What is developmental professional football?
It is 11 on 11 football played under N.F.L./PDFL rules. It is designed to
give high caliber athletes and coaches a platform to display and improve
their skills with some pursuing professional careers at the next level.
What makes developmental pro football different from semi-pro?
Unlike semi-pro football the majority of players on PDFL teams, have
college football backgrounds playing previously at the D1, D2, or D3 level
and have achieved their college degree. This ensures a higher level of
professionalism, competition and dedication to the game. The PDFL teams
also offer more to the community with the ability to advertise local
businesses and attractions on televised games.
Who supports the PDFL?
The PDFL teams work in partnership with their communities. The teams use
ticket sales, sponsor finances, private endowments and other contributions
to finance the teams and League. In return the teams support the
community by donating to local charities not just with donations but
personal time and events. The teams also sponsor events like the free
community BBQ and youth football camps. The teams also bring exposure and
recognition to the community through televised games which feature
commercials advertising local businesses and attractions.
This May of 2011, get to the Next Level.
The PDFL are seeking sponsors for our 2011 season. We have various
sponsorship levels that offer you exposure. Contact us firstname.lastname@example.org www.thepdfl.com
