The AWFC season is scheduled to kick off on Saturday night, March 26th, 2022, with all 6 teams playing that first weekend.  The AWFC has agreed to play crossover games with the newly formed American Indoor Football Association (AIFA).   The 10-game regular season will conclude on Saturday, June 18th followed by the AWFC Playoffs.

The AWFC’s third season will begin with 6 teams. The SoCal Redtails will join the Yakima Canines, Tri-City Rush, Oregon High Desert Storm, Wenatchee Valley Skyhawks, and the Idaho Horsemen to make up the round of teams.

The 2021 AWFC Season concluded on September 4, 2021, with the American West Bowl II in Pasco, Washington between the Idaho Horsemen and Tri-City Rush.  The Rush went on to win the second ever AWFC Championship (American West Bowl II) beating the Horsemen, (36-27).  The Rush and the Horsemen are both still undefeated at their home venue
