League Information

General Overview

The EWFL carries a unique experience in youth football to play in a “big game” atmosphere.  Our games begin in the afternoons on Saturday and play into the evening “under the lights” at many of the High Schools and Community Organizations in the area. 

Each organization will host four (4) home games and travel to four (4) away games each season.  The EWFL is a collection of many towns and communities that surround the greater Triangle area in central NC.  This aspect brings football back to its roots where smaller communities with limited populations formed teams and played each other.  A spirit of comradery and connection with one’s community is fostered.  Teamwork, friendship and fellowship among the players is the greatest achievement of this partnership with our EWFL organizations.
