Flag Football League in Buffalo, NY

The Epic Sports Center’s Flag Football program has grown steadily over the years. Players enjoy a three-man referee system and a choice of competitive or recreational leagues.

All leagues play on our 40 yard by 70 yard Victory Turf Field. Please note that this is not rubber in-fill turf; no outdoor spikes are allowed; sneakers only, please!

Indoor Flag Football Buffalo, NY

During our Fall and Winter hours, our league runs on your choice of Monday or Saturday nights. Please understand that due to the popularity of this league, teams may play one or two “spillover games” on an alternative day of the week per session. (For example, your team might have a game on a Thursday evening.) These games will be scheduled late in the session to better accommodate your team. Your captain will be informed about any spillover games when we phone with the first game time of the session.

During our Summer hours, our league continues to play indoors. We’ve recently installed a wall fan next to the Victory Turf Field to help disperse air and keep players cool.
