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, Open #1.                            

During our September session, our league runs on Monday nights.  During our November through May sessions, our league runs on your choice of Monday or Saturday nights.  Our May and July sessions play Monday 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.

Must have flags (flags may be rented from the Epic Center for $10.00 per session).
No spikes or turf shoes.  Sneakers ONLY!

There must be an adult coach (over 21 years old) present for all games.  All players must be 18 years old or older to be elgible to play in this league.  As long as you have at least one (1) player who is 21 years or older, you do NOT need a separate adult coach.  Your team captain/contact person MUST be 21 years or older and is the SOLE INDIVIDUAL responsible for collecting team payments and paying Epic Center in full by the third game of the session.
