Flag football league set for title game

Add this share

It’s not quite the Super Bowl – there aren’t any commercials or, for that matter, TV coverage – but don’t tell the National Flag Football League of Atlanta.

They take their flag football seriously. On Saturday, the league puts the wraps on a season that started in late March with a semi-final matchup at 10 a.m. and the championship game at noon.

In the first round of playoffs on June 14, the league-leading Broncos downed the Clippers 26-0 and received a bye to the title game. The Pirates beat the Raiders 25-13 and the Wildcats defeated the Rams 21-20.

That sets up a Pirates v. Wildcats matchup for the semifinal on Saturday, with the winner facing the Broncos for the championship. The games take place at Central Park in Midtown.

If you haven’t seen a game this season, check out the photo galleries here, here, here, here, here, here and here to see what you’ve been missing.
