League Activity and League Purging Policies

(updated 2/15/22)

The current minimum threshold to maintain an active league is 10 owners.

Active Leagues

Leagues with 10 or more owners, these leagues can sim games and are listed on Active League page.

Inactive Leagues

If a league falls below 10 owners, the league will be placed on hold at the end of current season, with sims paused. The league will still be listed on the Active League page, and will have 30 days to get back to active status. Owners will receive notification emails when the league goes on hold.

If the league returns to 10 or more owners, it will return to active status.

If below 10 owners after 30 days, the league will be moved to the Inactive League page (if 10 or more season played) or potentially Purged (if less than 10 seasons played). Inactive leagues are paused, and do not sim new seasons.

  • Extension of Deadline: If there is a reason to believe that activity will increase soon in a league, you may request reactivation for an extensionadditional of the 30 day deadlineseason.

  • Leagues with Special Rules: If you are a commissioner of a league that has rules that specifically merit playing under the minimum activity threshold, contact us to find out about possibility of being allowed to run as a unique format League.

  • Reactivating Inactive Leagues: If you are interested in reactivating a league on the Inactive League page, you will need to provide a list of 14+ owners committed to joining this league upon reactivation.

League Purges

CSFBL will strive to store all historical data for active leagues and inactive leagues that played at least 10 seasons in the past.

League data for leagues that move to inactive status before the 10 season mark will be eligible to be purged.
