The National Flag Football League of Atlanta celebrated a record-breaking number of player signups at a spring season kickoff party at Pin & Proper on Friday.
Some 200 players — including a record 34 women — signed up for the queer sports league, according to NFFLA Commissioner Justin Spears. That dwarfs last year’s record of 150 signups.
Veterans, rookies and friends gathered at the Grant Park facility to eat, drink and dance as this season’s teams were revealed.
Pre-season games kick off on Saturday at Silverbacks Park in Northeast Atlanta, while the regular season gets into gear on March 14.
