The Northeastern Football Alliance is an amateur-semiprofessional American football league based mostly in upstate New York. It is formerly known as the New York Amateur Football League, which split off from the Mid Continental Football League in the mid-1990s after the MCFL contracted into the midwest.

The NFA shares territory with the Empire Football League; most of the NFA's teams are in western and central New York whereas the EFL mostly covers the eastern half of the state.

As of the end of 2008, Minor League Football News has two NFA teams, the Albany Metro Mallers and Monroe County Sting, as the two best teams in all of semiprofessional football.[1]
