2019 Bondi Beach Flag Football Invitational
Flag Football is a modified rules version of American Football, where players wear a belt and have a velcro flag hanging from each hip. A tackle is made by removing a flag from the ball carrier. There is also a smaller field, less players, and a few other rule differences. This competition will take place on Australia's most famous beach.
The structure of this competition will depend on the number of entrants, but will likely consist of a short group stage followed by knockout finals, similar to the soccer world cup. The aim will be to have the competition run for less than a month.
Entrants will design 1 flag football uniform. That will consist of:
- A padless American Football style jersey
- Soccer style shorts
- A visor style cap
- A custom logo to be used on the shorts and visor, and jersey if desired. No borrowed logos
Because of the low contact nature of the sport, no pads or helmets are worn. Because this competition is held on the sand, no shoes or socks will be worn.
Here's how you will lay your logos out:
As with a couple of of my other quickfire competitions, we'll do a draft for location and primary colour to add to the fun and challenge.
This is the SIGN UP thread. Register your interest here, and you will go into the draft pool for primary colour and location.
I don't care how many people enter, the more the merrier. Everyone who registers interest is guaranteed a place.
I'll give 5 days for sign ups, so you've got until Friday the 12th of July to put your name down.
