Fox Valley Force
The Fox Valley Force is a not-for-profit minor league football team based in Appleton, Wis. The Force, which was established in 2006, is a member of the Northern Elite Football League (NEFL), which is comprised of Minnesota, Wisconsin, North and South Dakota minor league teams. The NEFL season runs from May to August, ending with the “Elite Bowl” championship game.
The Force is made up of local players, coaches and administrative staff who volunteer their time to make the team what it is today. Players range in age from 18 to 40+ years old with playing experience at all levels, from high school to NFL.
The Force players, coaches and staff are dedicated to the Fox Valley community, helping other nonprofits, such as Goodwill and the Harbor House. Profits from each home game are donated to different causes such as breast cancer research, domestic violence awareness, the Special Olympics and many more.
