The American West Football Conference (AWFC) announced today its 15-week, 30-game
regular-season schedule for 2021. After much discussion with our facility partners, the AWFC
has made a proactive decision to move the start date back to the 1st weekend in May due to the
on-going COVID-19 epidemic. Over the next few months our teams and the venues they reside
will continue to prepare to host games under the guidance of local officials. (ID, WA, & OR)

the 2019 AWFC Undefeated Champions Idaho Horsemen will host the Oregon High Desert
Storm based out of Redmond, Oregon. On Sunday, the Yakima Canines (WA) will host the Tri-
City Rush (WA), as the Wenatchee Valley Skyhawks will take a first week bye. The 12 game
regular season will conclude on Saturday, August 14th followed by the AWFC Playoffs.
The AWFC’s sophomore season will begin with 5 teams. The Yakima Canines, Tri-City Rush,
and the Oregon High Desert Storm will join the Wenatchee Valley Skyhawks and the Idaho
Horsemen to make up the round of teams.
The 2019 Inaugural AWFC Season concluded on July 28, 2019 with the AWFC Championship
Game in Nampa, Idaho between the Reno Express and the Idaho Horsemen. The Horsemen
