In 2017, after numerous years of talking about it, the game that never was supposed to happen, happened. The Flight 21 All-Star Clash between the GEFA All-Stars and the rival MIFL All-Stars finally became a reality.

The game started with a call from a familiar face, John Thellion. John, who was the founding father of the GEFA, had left to help start a new league, the Major Indoor Football League with former GEFA alum, Rio Prisco. John got in touch with former player and Keystone Bowl winning coach Travis Grobes who put John in touch with up and coming GEFA secretary, James Simerson. The two talked for about a month or so before the 2017 season started and then just like that, everything went cold again until about late May when the two started talks again.

After the GEFA board of owners agreed to the game, it was set at the Whitehall Rink for July. A lot of was riding on this game, more so a lot of pride from both leagues. In the end, the GEFA prevailed when Brock Mitchell hit Matt Riddick for the go ahead touchdown and Nick Parlanti made a spectacular 4th and goal stand to seal the win, 27-25.
