The Empire Football League (EFL) is a semi-professional American football league that operates franchises based primarily in New York and Pennsylvania. The league has been in existence since 1969.

Since 1969, there have been many franchises that have come and gone and have existed in many other locations besides New York and Pennsylvania, including Vermont, Connecticut, Quebec, and Ontario. Due to complications stemming from the Western Hemisphere Travel Initiative, all Canadian teams were removed from the league beginning in the 2010 season. (At the time, the Quebec Titans and the Ottawa Deacon Demons (Joliet Chargers) were still in the league.)

The league attempts to promote football at an amateur level and does help to prepare players who desire to play organized Football at a national level. Historically, the league's most dominant team has been the Scranton Eagles who have won a record 11 championships, 10 of those coming between the years 1982 and 1994.
