Welcome

FLAG (Friends, Lesbians, and Gays) Flag Football is Boston’s premier flag football league for the LGBTQ community and one of the largest gay sports leagues in Boston. Founded in 1998, we are a recreational football club playing on Saturday mornings in the spring and fall. All skill levels are encouraged to participate, and we are committed to providing a comfortable and enjoyable setting for those who want to play football and foster community. Since inception, we have grown from just 20 players in our first year to 20 teams of 13 players in the fall of 2021. Here are some great ways to get involved with our league:

Gay Bowl XXII Player & Captain Sign-Ups

Are you interested in representing Boston and competing on or captaining a team in the “Super Bowl” of flag football? Now’s your chance!

FLAG is looking for players and captains to compete in some high intensity football at Gay Bowl XXII, which will be held in Honolulu from October 6-9, 2022. It promises to be a memorable trip in a beautiful location with some exciting football — and hopefully some hardware will come back to Boston!


Introducing: Game Balls!

Here’s something brand new for the 2022 spring season: Game Balls! Each week, team captains will select one player from their team who deserves special recognition for their play. We’ll announce winners each Monday, so be sure to watch the league website & social media channels — and then give some shout outs to your teammates and friends!


Spring 2022 – Key Dates!


Meet Your Team – This Sunday!
