WLAFWorld League of American Football
1991–1992

The World League of American Football, or WLAF, began in 1991 as a spring farm league for the NFL. Teams were based in the U.S., Canada and Europe. The league was inspired in part by the success the NFL had in scheduling exhibition games overseas. WLAF played two seasons in the spring of 1991 and 1992, culminating in a World Bowl championship. The league was put on hold after the second season and revived as the NFL Europe League in 1995 as an exclusively European league.

The WLAF ball is the familiar Wilson model used by the NFL.
