As more and more stars flock to the American football league, such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Wayne Rooney or Bastian Schweisteinger.
Along with the development of American football in general, the interest of the audience for this tournament has increased, even among Vietnamese football fans.
The biggest difference between the North American football league and the rest of the world is that there is no form of relegation. That means a team, even if they lose the entire season, the following year will still participate.
In addition, the top team in the rankings is not the champion team, but the championship is only determined after a series of eliminations between the best teams in each region.
After 34 matches, each region selected the top 6 teams in the knockout series. Teams from the same region will automatically compete against each other, until there are two teams from the two regions competing to select the champion.
This means that the team that ranked first after 34 matches is unlikely to be the champion for that season. And of course, the bottom team will not be relegated or eliminated from the tournament.
However, this explanation is correct but there is a place that is not reasonable for the Japanese football tournament to be professional at the same time as North America.
After one organizing season, recognizing the success of FL, the Football Association was born to compete for influence. While in the US, the American League was born after that with the same purpose.
After several seasons of parallel organization, both countries saw the merger of the two tournaments. However, due to different conditions and history, the way of merging differs.
In the UK, because the Football League was born before and has a greater influence, when merged, the teams in the Football League will be one step higher than the teams in the Football Association.
