The Great Eastern Football Association is America's longest continuously-running amateur eight man football league and has been built on a highly-sustainable business model for its teams. The GEFA has also developed a strategic growth plan that will allow for continued expansion throughout the east coast at a manageable, yet meaningful pace.

The first step in the expansion process is for potential new members to complete the GEFA Membership Application. Potential new members will then give a presentation in-person at the annual October meeting. Before they go before the owners to present they will be put into the Expansion Portal with the Expansion Directors.

The Expansion Portal will help new owner/ownership groups prepare for the following:

  • Financial security
  • Insurance
  • Solid community backing
  • Running a team
  • Field location

Furthermore, a new team owner/ownership group must:

  • Check in to the Expansion Directors on the last Saturday of every month.
  • Pay a one-time application fee of $100.
  • Pay league dues.
  • Show enough interested players to be considered.

Potential new teams will not be allowed to be present before the owners unless the Expansion Directors sign off on them.
