About the Silverbacks: The London Silverbacks return for their fifth season in the world’s largest football league, the North American Football League (NAFL), as defending champs. Last year The ‘Backs became the first Canadian team to win a national title by capturing the 2007 NAFL SB championship in Las Vegas over the Baltimore Bay Atlantic Sharks (Maryland) 24-6.

The team has had incredible success bringing together a great number of former and future pros while continuing to provide a great place to play for athletes of all levels of experience who love to play the game. The Silverbacks also boast the proud distinction of an affiliation with the Toronto Argonauts of the CFL, as well as placing approximately 40 players on the NAFL all-star list and helping more than 20 players towards receiving professional contracts. Anyone looking for top-notch American rules football need look no further than Canada’s premier minor-league team, the London Silverbacks.
