Canadian Flag Football 2023

I see the NFL is spreading their flag football influence into more USports schools. Maybe the CFL should start targeting CCAA schools.

So this is sponsored by the NFL? :thinking:

I wonder if they allow for fair catches in NFL flag football.

OTTAWA, ON, February 26, 2023 – Football Canada is pleased to announce the return of the National Collegiate Flag Football Championship set for May 5 to 7, 2023 in Montreal, home of the Université de Montréal Carabins, winners of last year’s inaugural championship.

“After a successful inaugural championship in 2022, Football Canada remains committed to providing a positive and inspiring competition,” said Shannon Donovan, Executive Director of Football Canada. “The National Collegiate Flag Football Championship will help promote the growth of women and girls’ flag football across the country.”

The Football Canada National Collegiate Flag Football Championship 2023, which will feature women’s teams from across the country, will begin play at the Complexe sportif Claude-Robillard on the afternoon of Friday, May 5th with games running all weekend until the championship game Sunday afternoon. Registration will take place starting Friday, March 3rd and end on Monday, April 10. The full competition schedule will be announced at a later date.

This doesn't mention specifically that Canadian teams will be playing, but I assume/hope they will be.

Maybe the increase in women's flag football in Ontario USports schools will start to pay dividends in international competitions.
