The All Nations Football Conference member schools met last Wednesday, Aug. 13, to discuss the 2020-2021 football season. It was determined that only five of the 16-member schools could participate in the fall 2020 season due to restrictions from COVID-19.
The All Nations Football Conference Board of Directors, who are comprised of officials from Flandreau Indian, Little Wound, Cheyenne-Eagle Butte, Omaha Nation, Lower Brule schools, voted unanimously to postpone the fall 2020 season to spring of 2021.
The season will take place from April – early June 2021, with a six-game regular-season, quarterfinals, semi-finals and finals.
Earlier this year, it was reported that McLaughlin (North Dakota), Omaha Nation (Nebraska), and Winnebago (Nebraska) officially joined the conference.
Crow Creek took home the championship title last year after defeating Lower Brule in the DakotaDome.
Cheyenne-Eagle Butte and Takini play in this conference, but due to the pandemic, both schools have announced the cancellation of all fall sports.
