Nottingham Caesars is one of the oldest American Football clubs in the UK and is the home of American Football in Nottingham, celebrating the 40th anniversary this season.
As of 2024, the Caesars are in Divison 1 of the BAFA National League in the NFC South conference and working towards promotion to the Premiership for 2025.
Solid recruitment in 2023 bolstered the Caesars, and a redefined vision of success helped drive the team to a successful regular season campaign; achieving their first undefeated regular season (10-0-0) in 28 years since 1995. Despite earning a bye-week in the first round of the playoffs and asserting a dominant semi-final victory at home vs the Scunthorpe Alphas, the Caesars narrowly lost out on promotion to the Northumberland Vikings.
As of 2024, a reshuffle of the Division 1 conferences creates a new challenge and the Caesars are determined to reclaim their crown as NFC 1 South Conference Champions, get back to the promotion game and finish the job.
