NFL FLAG Regionals kick off: The road to NFL FLAG Championships 


April 11, 2024

Exciting news! NFL FLAG Regionals are back in action, kicking off an awesome tournament circuit of flag football.


Our 13 Spring Regional Tournaments is where it all begins, offering teams a pathway to compete at the highly anticipated 2024 NFL FLAG Championships this summer.  




Bigger and better than ever 


Regionals will showcase the best girls' and boys' teams from NFL FLAG leagues nationwide, representing all 32 NFL Clubs. This encompasses our recreational divisions, providing teams from organizations like the YMCA and Boys & Girls Clubs an opportunity to compete and advance to the NFL FLAG Championships.  

In total, 280 qualifying teams will earn a bid to compete at the NFL FLAG Championships, located at the iconic Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, from July 18 to 21. Every team is guaranteed three pool play games and one bracket game, all in a single elimination format.



Super Regionals 


NFL FLAG teams are eligible to compete in tournaments within their respective regions, with the exception of Super Regionals. During Super Regionals, borders are open, allowing any NFL FLAG team to participate, regardless of their geographical location.

This year, the Kansas City Chiefs, Cleveland Browns, and Detroit Lions tournaments will host Super Regionals, with the Lions tournament coinciding with the NFL draft.
