After much negotiation, the contract for the 2012 partnership with MillerCoors is signed! Unlike last year, in which relatively small amounts of money were divided across every NGFFL member city, this year, MillerCoors chose to concentrate the resources in select markets and around select events to maximize its exposure.
Importantly, MillerCoors has upped their investment in our community from $25k to $30k, a 20% increase over last year!
Thus, the $30K will be divided across the three largest national tournaments – Gay Bowl, Pride Bowl in Chicago, and Florida Sunshine Cup. The remainder is going to the leagues in Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco Bay. And a small amount is set aside to support the formation of a league in Dallas / Fort Worth, another market specifically chosen by MillerCoors. The NGFFL is facilitating the investment of those DFW-specific dollars.
The NGFFL Board hopes this experience sets the stage for uncovering more partnerships that can be shared with more local leagues and events. The NGFFL thanks MillerCoors for its partnership and commitment to our community!

According to initial results of the recent Gay Bowl player survey, 64% of respondents said either the communication they receive from the NGFFL is not enough, or they don’t receive communication at all. Ninety-two percent said they’d like to receive an e-newsletter from the NGFFL.
So today, the NGFFL launched The 2-Minute Drill, the league’s new monthly e-newsletter. Click here to read this month’s issue. We hope it helps increase understanding of the NGFFL and engages more of us in advancing our great sport in the LGBT community.
If you want to receive The 2-Minute Drill but did not, click here to sign up to receive it in the future.
Many thanks to NGFFL board member Molly Lenore for driving this important project.
