WELCOME

Created in 2002, the National Gay Flag Football League (NGFFL) is a 501(c)(3) sports organization that seeks to promote the positive social and athletic enjoyment of American Flag Football. Through our league, our events and most importantly our members, we also seek to foster and augment the self-respect of all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons and to promote respect and understanding from the larger community.

While particular emphasis is placed on these specific goals, it is a fundamental principle of NGFFL that all activities, social and athletic, are conducted to be inclusive in nature and that no individual shall be excluded from participating on the basis of sexual orientation, gender, race, religion, nationality, ethnic origin, political beliefs, athletic ability, physical challenge, HIV status or gender identity.

Currently, over 200 teams in 20 leagues across the United States and Canada are members of NGFFL. Teams representing these leagues participate in the national tournament titled Gay Bowl, hosted every Columbus Day Weekend in a different member city.

Want to Join?


We take pride in providing a well-run league at a reasonable cost and are very interested in having new players and volunteers join us. If you are interested in learning how you can join or simply to get more information, please contact our Director of Outreach Brandon Waggoner.

From the Commissioner
Thurman Williams

On behalf of our many players, leagues and sponsors around the country, thank you for your interest. Since 2002, the NGFFL has empowered thousands of LGBTQ athletes and allies through on and off the field engagement. We're proud of our success, and we hope you will find a home in one of our premiere gay sporting leagues in a city near you.
