A SPORT AS SIMPLE AS SOCCER, BUT ALREADY BELOVED BY AMERICANS. ONE WITH THE STAR POWER OF THE NBA, BUT DRAWING FROM A LARGER POOL OF STAR-CALIBER PLAYERS. A GAME AS KID-FRIENDLY AS BASEBALL, BUT FASTER AND MORE DYNAMIC. THIS ISN'T A DREAM SPORT. THIS IS FLAG FOOTBALL. -Natalie Weiner, Bleacher Report

Here Is What They Are Saying
“We are proud to make Flag the first sport to institute pay equity from day 1. How could we even consider playing football without a level playing field? Haha.. Our Women’s Division will feature exceptional female athletes from all over the world. The grassroots Flag community has always epitomized the inclusivity and diversity that so much of the rest of our society has struggled to achieve. Once we made the commitment to introduce the Women’s game to the world, there was no literally no option other than identical grand prizes.
The American Flag Football League’s progressive approach is helping to shape a more equal playing field for women in football and in all sports. As a professional athlete for over 15 years, I’m proud to bring a long history of experience in football on the professional level, and to be a part of the movement that AFFL is creating which will influence all sports for years to come
"When I was a little girl, it wasn’t cool to want to play football and it definitely wasn’t cool to play as well as the boys could. We are so excited to finally give all those football-loving girls out there the role models that our generation didn’t have to look up to.”
