DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - NFL FLAG announced its 2023 schedule featuring six additional NFL FLAG Regional Tournaments after record-setting participation in 2022 and an increased demand across the country. The 2023 season marks 25 years of hosting NFL FLAG Regional Tournaments.

The schedule for the now 22-tournament-season officially kicked off in Kansas City in April during the 2023 NFL Draft weekend. First-time tournaments will be held in four other cities – Nashville, Tenn. (June 11), Pittsburgh, Pa. (June 24), Jacksonville, Fla. (July 29) and Dothan, Ala. (TBD).

The regional tournaments will include flag football for all youth athletes between the ages of 8u and 17u and more opportunities for girls as well. The 2023 NFL Draft weekend will also host the debut of adult flag, which has already reached full registration.
