New England Flag Football

News Detail


Jul, 2021


After 17 years under NFL FLAG and in light of recent events we have decided to make the move to join the American Flag Football league (AFFL). If you thought flag football was fun already, wait until your try the AFFL. The rules are designed to make the game more like "real football" than any other flag football league. Laterals, blitzes, 4 downs, QB runs, on-side kicks are a few of the rule changes that make the game more fun and exciting and more strategic than ever before.
