  • August 05, 2019
The first flag football league in the city starts next month. If you want to have some fun, lace up and join us from August 29 for the next eight weeks.

What is flag football?

Flag football is a simplified version of American football with similar rules but instead of tackling the opponents, defenders must remove a flag or a flag belt from the ball carrier to end the down. Contact is not permitted thus no helmets and pads are required.

If you want to have fun, compete, learn more about the game you see on TV or meet new people, do not miss the opportunity to sign up to the Budapest Flag Football League!
