Your Call Football debuts at Daily’s Place

“Your Call Football” (YCF) president Julie Meringer wouldn’t call her product a league, per say.
Sure, 93-percent of the players on “Team Grit” and “Team Power” have previously appeared on NFL and/or CFL rosters. And certainly, part of why the two teams’ coaching staffs (who combine for 200-plus years of NFL experience themselves) got involved was to help the next generation achieve their NFL dreams.
“We are really about the fan engagement and fan competitions with play-calling,” Meringer explained prior to YCF’s debut at Daily’s Place, the practice facility of the Jacksonville Jaguars. “So the hope is that we can do this once or twice a year, but that we can [also] license this unbelievable fan engagement technology out to other sports properties who want to entice the fan who’s not watching TV. They’re streaming, and they wanna be innovative. And they wanna combine fantasy with live, play-calling in a game environment.”
Safe to say, this isn’t your typical, “Sunday afternoon football.”
