The Flag Football European Championships once again will take place in Spain, 7 – 10 September 2017, this time in the capital city – Madrid.

After a successful organized tournament in 2015 in Pinto, the Spanish Federation of American Football (FEFA, Federación Española de Fútbol Americano) once again offered their hospitality and organization for the next Flag Football European Championships 2017.

IFAF Europe CA Board confirmed earlier this year, at the meeting in February, that FEFA will host the next continental competition in September.

The event will consist of two tournaments, for men and women, and all nations and members of the IFAF Europe CA are welcomed to participate.

Tournament Director Mr. Fabio Tortosa, who also was a member of the technical committee of the organization in Pinto 2015, is excited and has already expressed hope for another successful organization of the EC Flag Tournament.

“Regarding the organization, working with experienced federations and their organizations doesn’t only makes the job easier, but learning from the past creates space and opportunities for improvement and further development. Also, it would be a pleasant experience for the participating teams and the spectators.”
