2021 NFL FLAG TOURNAMENT SERIES

Welcome to the next level of FLAG.

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. Athletes will have a path to both the Pro Bowl and Super Bowl.

NFL FLAG Regionals kick off at the NFL Draft on May 1-2 with OPEN borders for any official NFL FLAG program to participate. This will be the ONLY NFL FLAG Super Regional of 2021 where borders are OPEN. Following this event, NFL FLAG Regionals will take place and spread out across the country, throughout the rest of 2021. All NFL FLAG Regionals are exclusive to official NFL FLAG participants ONLY and will adhere to regional border restrictions. NFL FLAG Regionals feed into NFL FLAG Championships at Pro Bowl.

NFL FLAG Open Tournaments:  For the first time ever, NFL FLAG will offer NFL FLAG Open tournaments, where ANY player or team can participate with no border restrictions. The NFL FLAG Opens will feed into NFL FLAG Bowl at the Super Bowl. Alongside the NFL FLAG Open tournaments, NFL FLAG will sanction existing flag football tournaments. These sanctioned events are privately owned by individuals around the country who support NFL FLAG. Sanction tournaments will adhere to NFL FLAG guidelines and offer the winners half bid entry into the NFL FLAG Bowl at Super Bowl.  

Alongside NFL FLAG Open Tournaments, NFL FLAG will sanction large, pre-existing tournaments. These events are privately owned by individuals around the country who support NFL FLAG. Sanctioned tournaments will adhere to NFL FLAG guidelines and offer the winners half bid entry into the NFL FLAG Bowl at Super Bowl.
