Fantasy Football Division Names

The best fantasy football division names highlight the natural divisions among your owners. Do half sport Apple phones and the others Samsung? Do half work in one department and half in another?

That said, it’s usually pretty hard to find a split that works out perfectly. So pick something fun and go with it.

Here are some funny fantasy football division names to liven up your 2021 leagues.

Two-Division or Conference Names

For a standard 8-12 team league, all you really need is two divisions (some leagues call them conferences). Anything more than that, and you just like naming things.

Here are some fantasy football conference names that integrate comic book and political themes.
