That’s a wrap! Our 2023 year in review

Flag football grew in popularity—big time


More than 650,000 total NFL FLAG athletes participated in NFL FLAG last year, a 12% growth in registrations year over year. Even more, flag football became a sanctioned girls high school varsity sport in 8 states. And we’re even seeing a path to college for female players. 

Also, Pro Bowl saw a new format featuring flag football and—one of our favorite moments—flag football was officially voted to become a new sport in the 2028 Olympics. 

Like we said, it was quite a year for flag football. 


NFL FLAG tournaments


Once again, NFL FLAG hosted 22 regional tournaments nationwide and even featured a new tournament—the All 32 Summer Invitational—showcasing each NFL club.

We celebrated the NFL FLAG Championships at Pro Bowl Games, and participated in 34 NFL Club Clinics and Showcases. 


The year of the league operator


We happily welcomed 450+ new league operators to our squad and saw over 400 of them at our annual Summit this past year.

We’re continuously working to improve and deepen our connections with league operators, as we know they’re the heart of our programming. We're so grateful for each and every one of you!



Staying connected


We grew closer to our participants, parents, coaches, and league operators by connecting with them on social media—a whopping 220,280 followers.

We saw some viral moments (like this one) and loved collaborating with our NFL partner


We’re so excited to see what 2024 has in store!
