The Simulation Football League presented by APM Music is proud to announce its partnership with Retroid, a handheld gaming company that brings old video game systems back to life. The partnership puts SFL gaming in your pocket on league-branded hardware and will help the SFL grow its casual fanbase through its mod launch in July ahead of the league’s 21st season.

“We are thrilled to have Retroid join the SFL for our next era of immersion,” said Commissioner Cameron Irvine. “This will help make our game more accessible for our teams, our community and the many millions of people around the world who enjoy classic video game systems and titles at a much more affordable price than a gaming computer or a current-gen console, often needed to power virtual gaming. I couldn’t be more excited for the groundbreaking achievements we are making together.”

Retroid systems come with an official game launcher and emulator frontend installed through powerful devices that include a 4.7 inch touch screen and the Android 11 operating system. SFL fans can purchase limited edition SFL-branded Retroid Pocket 3+’s now through
