With the end of the US football season, many fans patiently wait for the new season to start. Luckily, there is another version of American football that sports enthusiasts can enjoy in the meantime- the Italian Football League (IFL). 

Never heard of the IFL? Buckeye Broadband has you covered. This blog will discuss the IFL, where to watch it, who is hosting the 2023 championship game, and its teams!

What is the Italian Football League?

The IFL, also known as Serie A, is the top professional football league in Italy. It is a prestigious league with millions of fans and some of the best players from around the globe. Although some may assume this league is soccer since many countries have different names for American Football, the IFL is the same as the pigskin sport we love. 

Fun Fact: Italians call soccer calcio, which means “kick.”
