The Missouri Valley Football Conference has announced dates and matchups in league play for the 2023 and 2024 seasons.

League members (there will be 12 MVFC institutions in 2023) will play eight Conference games each year.  While the Conference cannot play a full round robin each season, it should be noted that every MVFC institution plays every other MVFC institution at least two-thirds of the time in a six-year cycle (at least 4 out of every 6 seasons), supporting continuation of league identity and increasing competitive fairness over time.

Staff had considered multiple options, including divisional play, four-team pods and a true rotation, before arriving at the current model, which utilizes agreed-upon scheduling principles, including maximizing bus trips to the greatest extent possible and protecting rivalries.

Game dates for each MVFC institution accommodated facility and nonconference scheduling conflicts.
