What do I do if my gamepass account is banned?

Often the account is banned in Gamepass because too many users access it at the same time. In most cases, it helps to reset the password and log in again. If it still does not work, please contact the support at:

What gamemode is the league using?

The league is divided into three conferences: Western, Central and Eastern. Every team will play 12 games consisting of six home games and six away games. The franchises will play their conference opponents twice while also playing interconference matchups. Every first place of each division will reach the playoffs, as well as the remaining three other best teams.

Is the league a relaunch of the NFL Europe?

No. We are building on the European idea. In this way we want to bring football in Europeto a new sporting and economic level. However, the general conditions and players are completely different from back then. The European League of Football will have its own positioning and in the medium term it will spread throughout Europe. Every team will only be allowed to have four US-Imports on the gameday roster and two US-Imports on the field at the same time. Furthermore, six additional foreign players can be signed on the game day roster. The league is giving local players the chance to develop and play on a higher level to showcase their talent.

Which rules does the European League of Football use?

The European League of Football will play according to the rules of the NFL to increase the attractiveness of the game. We will adapt some of the existing NFL rules to the European conditions (Video review & Overtime Rule of the NCAA).
