The Southeast Football League (SEFL) is an adult amateur American football league. The SEFL is headquartered in Miami, Florida, and began the 2013 season with twelve member teams from around the state of Florida.

The regular season is an eleven-week schedule during which each team has one bye week and plays ten games. Each team will play all other teams in their division once, and likewise for all other teams outside the division within the conference and/or league. The season starts in early February and runs weekly to late May.

The SEFL was founded in 1995 by Dr. Franklin F. Sands and Jesse L. Wiggins. The league operated through the 1997 season, then folded. It was resurrected by Wiggins in June 2002 and began playing again in the spring of 2003. The SEFL has been operational each year since.

The Miami Knights and the Central Florida Thoroughbreds have each participated in a record five SEFL Championship Title Games. The Knights have won more SEFL Championship titles than any other league franchise - five. The Thoroughbreds organization, winners of two SEFL Championship Titles, holds the league record for consecutive SEFL Championship Game appearances with five (2005–2009).
