If you’re looking for live football, we’ve got it for you. The A7FL-the no pads or helmet league-has their tournament championship on Sunday at 8p EDT on ElevenSports.

The Paterson U vs New Jersey Hawks made it to the final round of the 4-week limited tournament presented by Salus. Usually a 16-team league, the North East Division consists of teams from Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Maryland. But this year, COVID-19 made it necessary to only have 4 New Jersey teams play.

The Hawks, Paterson U, the Renegades, and BIC all took part, but it was the U and the Hawks that have come out undefeated. That will change on Sunday.

The championship will be played in Yogi Berra Stadium in Montclair, NJ, so if you’re close, go check it out live.

For those who aren’t familiar, the American 7s Football League (A7FL) uses no hard pads, and no helmets, but is full-contact tackle football. It’s 7-on-7 (as the name represents) and the field is narrowed, so everyone isn’t so spread out.

It’s a wild game. And science backs up that it could be a safer alternative to the normal style of football we’ve grown accustomed to in North America.

The league just partnered with the social media company WAVE.tv, who can broadcast this brand of football directly to over 250 million viewers via its multiple platforms that include TikTok, Instagram, SnapChat, Facebook, and YouTube.

CEO Sener Korkusuz had this to say about the partnership:

“This is another huge distribution partnership for the league. Our new relationship with WAVE.tv will allow us to connect our hard-hitting league and amazing athletes with hungry sports fans being the first and only football league back to live-action.”

It’s also the only live football on right now. So, if you want to see it, you have 1 last shot.
