The Atlantic Central Football Conference (ACFC) was a college athletic conference which competed in football only in the NCAA Division III. Its member teams were located in Delaware, Maryland and Virginia. The conference disbanded following the 2010 season.

Final member schools[edit]

* The Apprentice School is not a college or university, and is not associated with either the NCAA or the NAIA. However, ever since the school was founded in 1919 it has fielded athletic teams (including football) that compete against small college NCAA/NAIA teams.

Former members included Chowan College (1998–2000), Ferrum College (1998–2000), Greensboro College (1999–2000), Methodist College[disambiguation needed] (1998–2000), Buffalo State College (2004–2005) and SUNY Brockport (2004–2007).
