How we were formed
On January 8, 2008, the officers and boards of directors of the WNY Youth Tackle Football Federation and The National Football Foundation & College Football Hall of Fame - Chapter 135 officially merged. The combined organization retains the WNY Youth Tackle Football Federation, Inc. entity and 501(c)3 status, but adopts the Western New York Amateur Football Alliance DBA. The goal is to combine the structure, resources, and legacies of both organizations to provide a cohesive goup of dedicated volunteers working together to promote amateur football in our Western new York comunity.
