Kansas City Electric Football League Season Three Begins

Opening night for the Kansas City Electric Football Club has begun in the Lee's Summit and Shawnee locations.  
My Minnesota Vikings kick off team set up in a game against Lynn Schmidt's KC Chiefs.  We would go on to win this one 24 to 21.  Lynn missed a FG that would have tied the game.

More action from the Chiefs Vikings game.  The field was built for Jesse by our commissioner Kelley Newton.  I played Jesse in our first game of the night but did not get any photographs.  Jesse is currently fielding a Sumner Sabers team but is working on a concept uniform Chiefs team.

Lynn's Chiefs.

Ready for some football.

Great times and a lot of laughs for those interested look up MFCA or Miniature Football Coaches Association online and see what this hobby has to offer.

  4. When I was a kid back in the late 1960's I got one of these games. after playing it a few times, my brother and I would "drum" the board with our fingers. We found we could control the players by doing that, making for a more interesting game. By the way, my teams were the LA Rams and the Green Bay Packers.

    1. I have played this game for years and cannot remember my first game. It was a thrifted copy from a flea market. I have always played Vikings.

  5. I had one of these too, in the early 60's. My father and I played a few times, but the game did not work wonderfully--some of the thin nylon pieces under the stands got bent, making a few of the guys run backwards. Also, the kicker was a spring-operated metal "figure", that always sent the felt football about 3 feet beyond the end of the board. I don't recall what became of the game, but its departure was lamented by no one. Oh well.

    Best regards,

    Chris

    1. That is a very common memory. I am lucky to have gotten enough of these second hand that I culled good running players.
