How the Simulation Football League is Keeping Football Going

[Music] number one source for the sports gamer as the sports world continues to be at a standstill during these unprecedented times many are turning to watching video games to get their sports fix the NBA is put on NBA 2k tournaments with players NASCAR have seen its drivers take part in weekly AI racing events and the NHL is seeing its teams air games sim via NHL 20 but there's one group of fans that have always had an outlet for the sport all along I'm talking about football fans with the NFL in its offseason many look to the XFL for that hard-hitting action unfortunately the league's inaugural season was cut short due to the health concerns leaving many wondering where to turn that's where the simulation Football League has come in and stepped up in a big way a simple eSports Football League to the outsider the SFL is much more than meets the eye featuring 20 individually owned franchises over 40 coaches and Scouts and 440 players in the league the SFL is a fully operational virtual Football League there is a different kind of entertainment that you can partake in there is interactive sports out there they didn't exist before us and I don't know that they exist much much anywhere else right and what I mean by interactive sports is a viewer on television is watching themselves their friends their family members the games are played in AI vers AI contests using a modified version of all pro football 2k8 making the SFL the first and only eSports league of its kind not only does it use a game from over a decade ago but there's also no one actually playing the games it's all done using game plans created by the coaching staff and submit it to the league for play and rather than using a league full of randomly generated players the SFL builds its rosters in a more personal fashion every member of an SF L roster is based off of a real person whether you have athletic experience or not the SF l prides itself on welcoming any and everyone who wants to be a part of the league it's the truest form of fantasy football this is for the people by the people and it really is a celebration of individuals and you know their stories and their moments so that as fans were not just viewers anymore we're actually a part of the game in which we are partaking in circling back to the game being used for the simulations SFL Commissioner Cameron Irvine says that using all pro football 2k8 provides the league with stability and reliability that you can't get with modern sports games like Madden the biggest reason why we don't use Madness is because of the the the constant updates to the game and not being able to do anything about that in our business we need to be able to rely on consistent artificial intelligence that can be studied and can be game planned for and against right it's very important so if things are constantly changing it would devalue the work and efforts being made by our coaching staffs across the league Irvine added that the league has talked with game companies about possible partnerships or building out a product for the SFL for now however the league is happy with where things are with all pro football 2k8 as the engine for the simulations now in its 14th season they play two seasons per year the SFL has seen its notoriety grown nationally with local outlets starting to pick up coverage of teams in their cities the league even secured its first traditional television deal when it's signed on with eleven sports to broadcast its games on the network that's available on major providers like DirecTV and Verizon FiOS I made a pretty large investment in technology you know from our headquarters so that we you know we're broadcasting in 1080p we had you know higher quality audio things like that and so I you know because I felt like okay you know we need to position ourselves to make the jump in just a couple of weeks after that I got a call you know saying you know I'm with 11 sports and we'd like to to partner with you to air your content with that traditional TV package going along with the league's online presence on YouTube and twitch the SFL on its 20 team see every game broadcasted in some way or form this gives fans across the country and beyond looking for a team to follow ample opportunity to get used to the product Irvine says that establishing the SFL on a national scale first and growing the league's mainstream fans was always part of the business model going the other way he said would have led to far less coverage than they're seeing now if I want to localize a team in Houston but they don't have never heard of our product ever I stand no chance with most people in self-isolation right now as the country and the rest of the world tries to combat the virus the SFL has seen an uptick in interest from multiple fronts whether it's been the affer mentioned local media coverage or the random person clicking through TV channels for something to watch SFL games have become an escape for people looking for a sense of normalcy in their lives you know with everybody being home this league has been has taken on a whole new meaning for people because it is something to look forward to it really is just about showing people who we are it's just an introduction of the product nothing has really changed we're just blessed and humbled to be able to still operate despite the increased attention right now though there's the obvious question about what happens when quote life gets back to normal to that Irv ein says he's optimistic that the people who've taken the time to find and watch the SFL have found something that they can enjoy and be a part of for years to come I am more than happy to be people's entertainer in a time like this
