Ready to rumble
Get ready for the first Flag Football tournament in EuroGames history. We are proud to offer this mixed gender sport in our official programme together with our partner Blackbucks Bern. As a special introductory discount, the EGLSF and EuroGames Bern 2023 are offering participation at a reduced rate of €65 per participant. The discount will be automatically deducted in our registration system.
As opposed to American Football there’s no contact allowed in Flag Football. That includes tackling, diving, blocking, and screening. Instead, players wear flags that hang along their sides by a belt. To «tackle» the person in possession of the ball, the opposing team needs to pull one or both of their flags off.
While flag football rules are designed to keep players safe, you’ll find that they also create an engaging, fast-paced version of football without the physical contact.
The number of matches at the tournament will depend on the number of registered teams. Each team will play at least three matches. If there are few registrations, the tournament will be held on a single day.
Teams are asked to bring their own flags, jerseys and footballs to the tournament.
