History

The league began on October 4, 2008. After competing in the OAFL 'Rec' footy league, the Québec Saints divided their squad into two smaller teams in order to create a 9-a-side league easily accessible to Montréal residents. That first match between the Montréal Saints and Laval Bombers was played at Parc Cartier in Laval. The Bombers claimed victory by 8 points.

In 2009 the ECAFL regular season consisted of 7 rounds. The Laval Bombers finished with a 4-3 record claiming first position. The Bombers had the luxury of a 'double chance' as a reward for top spot, and as such the Montreal Saints needed to win two finals to claim the premiership while Laval needed only win one. The Final played at CEGEP Montmorency in Laval saw the Laval Bombers 27.12 (174) defeat the Montreal Saints 2.6 (18). The final score, and winning margin both ECAFL records.
