NFL FLAG is the official flag football league of the NFL and the largest flag football organization in the U.S.


1,600+ Teams | 500,000+ Youth Athletes | 50 States

Transforming Athletes. Uniting Communities.


Backed by the NFL with an emphasis on football fundamentals and community involvement, NFL FLAG empowers youth athletes across the nation.

We believe sports have the power to transform athletes and unite communities. That’s why we’re bringing flag football to every corner of the U.S. to provide youth athletes with the opportunities and experience to get in the game. 

Growing the game for ALL athletes.


NFL FLAG is a fun and accessible non-contact program available for girls and boys ages 5-17. NFL FLAG is the largest, most recognized flag football organization in the U.S.—and the only one where players wear official NFL gear. 

Flag football is an incredibly inclusive sport and opens the doors to many players, including female athletes. In fact, the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) just launched the first college sanctioned women’s flag football league in the spring of 2021.

More kids are playing flag football than ever before.


And we can see why—it’s engaging, inclusive, and ridiculously fun.

The best part is: anyone can learn how to play flag football. You don’t need a certain build, skill set or prior experience. Both girls and boys from 5 to 17 years old can sign up for NFL FLAG

Flag football has a lot to offer, from co-ed leagues to competitive tournaments. The 2021 NFL FLAG Tournament Series offers athletes more opportunities to compete than ever before, including younger and older age divisions, recreational divisions, and expanded opportunities for girls.
