Play Midget Football!

The Midget Football League of Manitoba (MFLM) is an exciting and vital football league for student-athletes ages 16to 18. Our teams serve over 100 high schools within 90-minutes of Winnipeg, Stonewall, Selkirk, and Oakbank, Manitoba.

The MFLM has been a fixture for high-quality football in Manitoba for 62 years, and continues to prepare players for the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL), Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS), and Football Manitoba’s provincial teams.

With the launch of the midgetfootball.ca website in 2007, the MFLM began offering many unique benefits to its players not provided by any other minor football league in Canada:

Our players come from a variety of football backgrounds:
