Nation’s top flag football teams to compete in World Championships

Just because the pads come off, that doesn’t mean football season has to end.

The country’s top teams will be playing in the Metro Competitor Flag Football Union World Championships in Las Vegas from March 26-28, with squads of a variety of skill levels competing.

The Las Vegas World Championships will include teams playing in Pro, Competitive, Recreational, and Parks and Rec divisions. Formats consist of 8v8 Eligible, Women, Coed, 7v7 and 5v5. The Pro division features the country’s top 18 flag football teams, which travel and compete throughout the year.

About 80 teams from at least 12 states, including Nevada, will compete at All American Park, at Buffalo Drive and Oakey Boulevard.

The MCFFU is the premier flag football organization in the country, and also stages the Flag Football World Championship Series in Miami each January as part of the USA Flag Football Circuit.
