CHARLOTTE ELECTRIC FOOTBALL LEAGUE HISTORY

The Charlotte Electric Football League pronounced ( shar lot )located in Rochester New York is the longest running Electric Football league in the United States.The CEFL started in 1981 which makes 2010 our 30th. year of competitive play.The league was formed by five young men in their early 20's who had all grown up playing the game.It was decided that the games would be played in John DiCarlo's basement which because of it's below ground location would come to be called Subterranean Stadium.It was also decided that John DiCarlo would serve as commissioner and get to do all the work.The stadium has seen hundreds of great games that have created hundreds of wonderful memories over the years.The stadium has become almost a shrine to the game of Electric Football holding memorabilia from every game ever made and countless football related items which fill every nook and cranny.The league now has ten regular members and two subs.There are 3 games played simultaneously at 6pm and and 2 more at 7:30 on Wednesday nights in a season that starts in September and runs into March.There are playoffs, a league championship game,allstar game,a bowl game for the two worst teams in the league followed by a league banquet. There are only two of the original members left in the league,Wayne Palumbo and John DiCarlo,two others Dale Gillette and Bill Tortora live out of state and sadly one (Steve Demchock) was lost to a fatal heart attack.Steve may have been the best player ever to play the game and is greatly missed by all. When the game of Electric Football is mentioned to most people they reply with"you mean that game that vibrated and all the men fell down or ran in circles?.That statement comes from someone who never learned how to play the game as it was meant to be played or has never seen it played by someone who does.Played correctly with the proper rules and equipment it is almost like moving chess and ten times more fun. The players if used as intended will mimic the real thing creating a fantasy world for football lovers.Any real football fan will become addicted to the game if he plays it as it should be played. In my opinion it is the greatest board game ever invented and it's longevity ( Since 1947 ) proves it.Still made today it is played all across America by those who love a hands on action game of strategy, skill and most of all imagination. John DiCarlo: CEFL Commissioner
