American Flag Football League reaches television partnership with NFL Network

American Flag Football League reaches television partnership with NFL Network”

The American Flag Football League probably won't take over the sports world or anything, but maybe it can draw some viewers during the slowest period on the NFL calendar.

The upstart American Flag Football League has a TV partner. Additionally, the relationship provides a unique opportunity for the National Football League to explore digital distribution of AFFL content.

"Today marks great progress for football fans and players", says AFFL CEO/founder Jeffrey Lewis. The 11 game telecasts will be produced by NFL Network and feature NFL Network talent.

The deal calls for the NFL Network to televise 11 AFFL games during the tournament between June 29-July 19.

The AFFL is holding a 132-team, single-elimination tournament for its first season. In the summer, the top amateur teams that have advanced will match up against four teams of former professional athletes, including Michael Vick, Chad Johnson, Nate Robinson and Carlos Boozer. Highlights of additional games, with commentary from to-be-announced NFL Network talent, will also be shown as part of the agreement. "Open of Football" games between June 29 and July 19. Given the presence of big-name retired athletes, the U.S. Open of Football also bears some similarity to BIG3, Ice Cube's 3-on-3 basketball tournament, which debuted a year ago and will again air on Fox this coming June through August. In anticipation of a new wave of interest in participating in the USOF, the AFFL is extending the application deadline from March 1, 2018 to March 8, 2018.

You can apply to play in the U.S. Open of Football on the AFFL's website. Those selected will play in America's Bracket, which comprises 128 teams.
