The Southern States Football League is a late winter-spring semi-pro football league with all of its teams based in Florida. It has one of the most unique business forms in the industry, where a person may put together a team and register it into the SSFL. Every off-season, teams come and go.

The league is popular as a type of spring-training league for NFL players who don't get jobs in NFL Europe. Each team plays a 10-week schedule. At the conclusion of the season, all teams have a bye week, then the playoffs begin. Teams with the best records during the regular season will have home field advantage for the playoffs. All SSFL teams make the playoffs, regardless of their record. Even a winless team can make the playoffs. The two conference champions play for the league title in the Rice Bowl, currently held in Orlando's Citrus Bowl.

The SSFL game ball is the Wilson F1000 that the NFL uses.
