There are currently two forms of American Football being played here in the UK, full contact known as kitted football, or non-contact known as flag football which is what the Glasgow Hornets play.
The simplest way to describe Flag Football would be to say it’s like a form of 5-a-side NFL American Football; without the helmets or pads; or the painful hits for that matter. Eliminating all contact allows for a more free flowing and fun game that can be played by anyone who wishes to participate; young and old, male and female, all enjoying what this fast growing sport has to offer.
Over the past 13 years the interest in flag football as a leisure pursuit; a training tool; and a competitive sport; has increased dramatically. Yes, flag football has become a sport in its own right, fuelled by the interest shown in over 60 countries throughout the world.
