The International Association Football League is a football competition in which forty-eight clubs from eight nations compete in two conferences, the Fire Conference and the Granite Conference.

Each club plays 46 matches per season, one home and one away against each of the other 23 clubs in its conference. At the end of the season, one team from each nation is relegated to the top level of the nation’s domestic league system, determined by a playoff between the nation’s lowest finisher in each conference. The team is replaced with another club from that nation, chosen by the nation’s football association. The top four teams from each conference, regardless of nationality, qualify for the postseason where a direct knockout format over two legs is used to determine the league champion.


The IAFL was created by the football associations of Bedistan, Casari, and Milchama. In the original format, a single conference of eighteen teams was used, and the winner won the league title. The team from each nation finishing lowest was relegated. In the third season, Liverpool England joined, and the league expanded to twenty-four teams, though the format remained essentially the same. For the fifth season, Capitalizt SLANI—recognized by the IAFL as the football association of the Unified Capitalizt States—and Krytenia joined, and rather than using a single thirty-six team league, the format was changed to two conferences of eighteen teams, three from each nation. Playoffs were added to determine the league winner and the teams to be relegated. In the sixth season, Oliverry and The Lowland Clans were added, and the conferences were expanded to twenty-four teams each. For season 9, Chicanadian teams wil replace Krytenian ones after a dispute between the IAFL and the Krytenian FA.
