Philippine Legal PAFL Betting

PAFL ShieldThe Philippine-American Football League (PAFL) was founded in 2016 and is known as “the home of American football in the Philippines.” The PAFL was founded after the Philippine Tackle Football League (PTFL) folded in 2015, which left the Philippines without any leagues playing American football.

Today, the PAFL is rising in popularity across the country, and the up-and-coming league is the exclusive league for American football in the country and has all its games broadcasted on ESPN5.

Because the league is still young, there aren’t any betting lines at any of the major online sportsbooks. However, when the online sportsbooks start offering betting lines and odds on the PAFL, we’ll be the first to let you know.

Is Betting on the PAFL Legal in the Philippines?

Even though there aren’t any PAFL betting lines offered by online sportsbooks at this time, it is legal for residents of the Philippines who are age 18 or older to participate in legal football betting. Here is the safest and legal online sportsbooks to bet on the PAFL when it becomes available.

Can I bet on the PAFL at MegaSportsWorld?

Unfortunately, MegaSportsWorld (MSW), the domestic sportsbook of the Philippines, does not allow Filipinos to bet on any sporting events happening inside the county, which means that PAFL betting lines and odds would only be offered at MSW if the laws of the country change. Residents of the Philippines currently can only bet on the PAFL if offshore sportsbooks decide to offer wagering options on the newly-founded American football league.

Philippine-American Football League Format

The PAFL’s third season kicked off in 2018 and ESPN5 became the official broadcaster for the league. All PAFL games are broadcasted through ESPN5’s YouTube channel. The league now features these six teams:

  • Cavemen
  • Datu
  • Juggernauts
  • Rebels
  • Warriors
  • Wolves

Each team will compete in a single-round robin format throughout the course of the season. The top four teams will make up the knockout stage in the semifinals, and the winner of both games will advance to the finals with the winner of the championship game being crowned the winner of the PAFL league for this season.
