Cincinnati, OH, USA – Joseph Perez, a husband, father, service member, law scholar, and self-proclaimed entrepreneur and investor has successfully secured the rights to Cincinnati as one of the new divisions of the A7FL. The A7FL Cincinnati Division joins 3 other new divisions for 2022 as the league expands from 4 To 8 divisions.
Joseph used to play baseball back in the early 2000’s but didn’t make it very far. After joining the military, he decided to pursue a degree in Sports Management with a minor in Exercise Science. Back surgery forced him to put the degree on hold and now seven years later, he enrolled in law school to focus on the athlete and entertainment representation field.
“Initially, I was going to only invest in the league, but after doing some more research I noticed that it was the opportunity of a lifetime,” says Joseph. “Not many people were able to invest in the NFL during its infancy. So for me, an ‘Average Joe’ to be able to own a division and grow with the league is one of the biggest accomplishments in my entrepreneurial phase.”
Joseph realizes that NFL is huge and probably too hard to compete against when it comes to national television ratings. He strongly feels that A7FL could become the farm for NFL teams. “A great thing about A7FL is that player safety comes first. Taking away helmets and pads force players to use proper tackling techniques,” remarks Joseph. “Now, imagine how much safer the NFL would be if every player played at least one season in the A7FL and took what they learned with them up to the professional level.”
Sharing his goals for the next 3 years for A7FL Cincinnati Division, Joseph says that his short-term goal (first season) is to get his division in local television. His long-term goal (2nd and 3rd seasons) is to win a national championship.
A7FL Cincinnati’s season starts April of 2022, which will consist of up to 8 teams of full contact, no helmets, no pads football action. Players 18 and over will have the opportunity to show their skills during televised games, social media highlights and more. The sport that America wants will be bringing excitement to a field near them very soon.
