Air Force Installation and Mission Support Center Public Affairs

Department of the Air Force gamers have until Nov. 6 to sign up for the 2023 DAF Gaming Fall Season. 

The DAF Gaming program, managed by the Air Force Services Center, is the cornerstone of the Air Force gaming community, fostering camaraderie and competition among services members and Department of Defense civilians who have a passion for gaming. 

The fall season, already underway, features two new divisions – DAFGL Pro and DAFGL Casual – and includes popular esports titles including Smash Ultimate, Call of Duty Warzone 2v2 and Rocket League 3v3.

“DAFGL Pro is the pinnacle of competitive gaming within the Air Force Gaming community,” said Tech. Sgt. Justyn Guthier, noncommissioned officer in charge of Department of the Air Force esports at the AFSVC. 

“This division offers increased prizing, potential live-event qualifications and a heightened level of competition,” he said. “It’s open to active duty service members, Guard, Reserves and Department of Defense civilians who have access to a military base. Participants in DAFGL Pro can expect a rigorous and exhilarating esports experience, competing at the highest level while representing the Air Force.”

DAFGL Casual is more accessible and welcoming to gamers of all skill levels, the NCOIC said. 

“This division is open to anyone who has access to the Air Force Gaming platform, including Air Force enthusiasts and civilian supporters. DAFGL Casual focuses on a friendly and inclusive gaming environment, where participants can enjoy esports without the pressure of intense competition.”

The AFSVC launched this season, presented by USAA, Oct. 21 and includes competitions every Saturday through Dec. 9, Guthier said.

The grand finals are scheduled for Dec. 16 and 17.

"With the addition of DAFGL Pro and DAFGL Casual, we aim to cater to a broader audience of gamers while continuing to provide a competitive platform for our service members. This season will undoubtedly showcase the talent and dedication of our Air Force gaming community," he said.

“The DAF Gaming League 2023 Season promises to be a thrilling journey filled with intense esports action, community building and opportunities for growth within the Air Force Gaming family,” said Senior Master Sgt. Mario Jaramillo, operations manager for DAF Fitness and Sports, “with USAA supporting Air Force Gaming’s initiatives to showcase more stories within the military community through their video content series like Wingman Wednesdays, Top Plays and more.”
