The Northeastern Football Alliance is an amateur-semiprofessional American football league based mostly in upstate New York. It is formerly known as the New York Amateur Football League, which split off from the Mid Continental Football League in the mid-1990s after the MCFL contracted into the midwest.

The NFA shares territory with the Empire Football League; most of the NFA's teams are in western and central New York whereas the EFL mostly covers the eastern half of the state.

As of the end of 2008, Minor League Football News has two NFA teams, the Albany Metro Mallers and Monroe County Sting, as the two best teams in all of semiprofessional football.[1]


Historically, at least one team has represented the Rochester and Syracuse areas. The Central New York Express had been in existence since the 1980s, but disbanded and were replaced by the Syracuse Shock in 2008 and 2009; the Shock will join the North American Football League in 2010. Meanwhile, in Rochester, the long-established Monroe County Sting were members of the league for its entire existence until jumping to the United States Football Alliance in 2010.
