The Alberta Football League (AFL) is an amateur Canadian football league. For the 2012 season, seven teams competed for the league championship. The league's schedule runs from the start of June through to the end of September.

The Alberta Football League was established in 1984 so that men over the age of 21 could continue to play organized competitive football within the province of Alberta. Before the creation of the league, the only way to play competitive football after university or junior was the Canadian Football League.

In 1984–85 the league consisted of seven teams. They were: the Calgary Raiders, the Calgary Cowboys, the Calgary Crude, the Red Deer Redskins, the Rocky Warriors, the Hinton Grizzlies, and the Brownfield Bruisers.

In 2012 the league consists of seven teams. They are: the Calgary Gators, the Calgary Wolfpack, the Central Alberta Buccaneers, the Lloydminster Vandals (the only team to be based outside the province of Alberta), the Grande Prairie Drillers, the Edmonton Stallions, and the Edmonton Garrison Army (Canadian Forces Base Edmonton).

In 1999, the AFL became a founding member of the Canadian Senior Football League, which is now known as the Canadian Major Football League. The CMFL is the national governing body for semi-pro Canadian football. Every September the AFL champion meets the champions of the other semi-pro leagues across the country to determine the national champion.
