Pulling The Flag


Flag football in the UK is growing.

In 2014, 39 teams participated in the BAFA adult flag season, from Aberdeen to Plymouth. That number is expected to grow next year, with more and more players discovering a sport that isn’t just American Football without the pads. There’s also a surge in the women’s game, GB is doing better than ever, and there’s a whole bunch of juniors and cadets preparing to make their mark.

Pulling the Flag was founded in 2013 to bring news, highlights and debate to the thousands that now devote their time to the game. It’s not an official site. We’re a fanzine for flag; a weird, noisy bunch that aren’t afraid to stick our oar in.

We’ve got a growing team – based all over the country – that work hard to get you the results that matter, as well as reaction, footage, interviews, features, podcasts and comment where we can. Want to see something else from us? Give us a holler, and we’ll see what we can do.

There’s a whole bunch of people snapping, writing, recording and chatting about the sport up and down the UK, and we’ll try and find them for you as well.

Let’s spread the word.
