The  Irish American Football Association has a total of 19 teams competing in 3 Divisions.

  • The elite level Shamrock Bowl Conference (SBC),
  • The second tier, Irish American Football League 1 (IAFL1)
  • The third tier, Irish American Football League 2 (IAFL2)

The SBC is divided into two conferences of 5 teams which culminates in play-offs and ultimately the National Championship Shamrock Bowl.

In IAFL1, 5 teams play each other twice and the top two playoff for promotion to the SBC

The IAFL2 was founded to facilitate the rapid expansion of the sport and allowed new teams play against each other before taking on the more experienced established teams. At the close of the 2014 Season, all of the IAFL2 teams will join the IAFL1.

The playing season runs from late March to mid August.
