DFI Approves Bulldogs of San Diego for 2018 Expansion
(SAN DIEGO) – The Bulldogs of San Diego sports leadership organization announced today they have partnered with Developmental Football International LLC (DFI) in the launch of a scalable franchise platform designed to produce 'Game-Ready Players' and 'Life-Ready Men™.'
Chairwoman LaQuita S. Glover confirmed the Bulldogs organization and its applications have met DFI’s formal approval process for participation in fall 2018, as DFI officially expanded its footprint into San Diego.
“We are thrilled we have met DFI requirements and have this opportunity to play at the next level,” said Ms. Glover, a licensed vocational nurse.
The Bulldogs will play their games at the 5,000-capacity Ramona High School Stadium, located in the City of Ramona, a San Diego suburb.
The nation’s eighth-largest city, San Diego is home to major tourist attractions Legoland, Sea World, The San Diego Zoo, and various beaches.
DFI, which notably includes the SoCal Coyotes, America's #1 Developmental Pro Football Program™, will play an eight-game schedule, with additional playoffs this fall.
DFI executives acknowledge that up to a dozen more teams are currently in the intensive franchise application vetting process, and that as many as four more could be announced next week.
Officials said the Bulldogs were approved after a thorough review by DFI, of the owner's personal and business history, player development processes, technical abilities, fiscal responsibility, career trajectory, and social and civic responsibility.
For the sake of parity and consistency, each owner must agree to zero tolerance and full compliance of DFI's suite of franchise operating guidelines. DFI heavily weighs an owner’s commitment to community integration.
TEAM COLORS are black, midnight blue and yellow.
