Team Registration for IAFA Flag Football 2019 is now open. The form can be found here.
IAFA Flag Football will be running two mixed leagues this season. The Emerald Bowl Conference (EBC) and the Glas (Green) Bowl Conference (GBC).
The EBC has now become the premier league for Flag Football in Ireland, and the 2019 season will see the top 12 teams from EBC18 compete for the national championship.
The GBC is a new league created for new teams wanting to give a go at Flag Football and also for returning teams needing a bit of TLC to hopefully reach the EBC in a future season.
We will also allow for clubs to field two teams if their numbers are consequent enough to do so. If a club has already a team in the EBC, then the second team will be automatically entered in the GBC. If this is the club’s first time playing Flag Football, then both their teams will be competing in the GBC. As the end of the season, only one of the two teams will be allowed in the EBC (if in a position to do so) with the weaker team forfeiting any promotion to the next team in the overall standings.
As it stands and based on EBC18 these are the 12 teams to enter EBC19:
|1. Craigavon Cowboys||2. Louth Mavericks|
|3. Trinity College Dublin||4. Edenderry Eagles|
|5. Belfast Knights||6. Belfast Trojans|
|7. UCC||8. Dublin Bay Raptors|
|9. UCD||10. Westmeath Minotaurs|
|11. UL Vikings||12. Dublin Rebels|
Registration for EBC teams closes on April 15th.
Registration for all others teams closes on April 30th.
More details on rules for both leagues to follow.
