Two giants in the youth football space are teaming up to produce one of the world’s biggest flag events. National Flag Football, the nation’s top flag football program and producer of the biggest flag events in the country is teaming up with the Pro Football Hall of Fame Academy, producers of the top football events in the world and owner of the biggest tackle youth championship platform.
The championship event is slated for the weekend of July 19-21, 2019 at the National Youth Football & Sports Complex located at Johnson Controls Pro Football Hall of Fame Village in Canton. The top flag teams from across the country and the globe will compete in the tournament.
The championship weekend will consist of exciting pool, bracket play, and championship play as well as feature Hall of Fame speakers, a national media night, and a Red-Carpet Ceremony for all teams.
All flag teams from around the country and world are invited to compete in the recreation and elite divisions. Top performing teams from the regional NFF flag events will be offered a guaranteed spot.

A unique and exclusive element is “A Game for Life” curriculum, developed by the Pro Football Hall of Fame, that focuses on the values learned from the game of football.
