Major League Football, Inc. (OTC: MLFB) is a new professional spring football league. The league's teams will focus on emerging and underserved markets. SNNLive caught up with Ivory Sully from Major League Football, Inc. at the Growth Capital Expo 2015 in Las Vegas, NV.
We last spoke with Mr. Sully, (See here: $MLFB – Are you Ready for Some (Spring) Football?) in October 2014, where we were introduced to the idea of a professional football league with a spring/summer schedule.
In this update, Ivory discusses how the company is targeting millennial interest, secondary markets, “somewhere there’s not a major league baseball team or an NFL football team,” as he states, for teams in the league, in places such as, Eugene, (Press Release: Major League Football Targets Eugene, Oregon for Spring Football Franchise) or Birmingham, AL (Press Release: Major League Football Targets Birmingham, Alabama for Spring Football Franchise). He also explains rule changes that the MLFB may implement to enhance game play, for instance, as Mr. Sully describes, “The ground does cause a fumble in Major League Football.”
As Mr. Sully also points out, MLFB is a place where concussion-preventing technology can be tested and validated prior to implementation in the NFL or other contact sports, “Technology is very important for what we are going to do going forward. Testing out the concussion situation – we have a white board where we can probably go a few more steps than maybe the NFL can’t for certain reasons, and we are going to be taking those steps that would take us to the next level of research and development to reduce concussions in the game overall, and which one day, may be taken up by the NFL.”
Mr. Sully concludes the interview by describing business development programs for retired players, MLFB’s business model, television deals in sports, platforms for streaming content and what that means for the MLFB, and stadiums where games will be played.
