A revised American Football Ireland Flag schedule for 2020 was brought out in September due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic. In the first week at the end of September, Donegal Derry Vipers had two victories in the North Conference and Antrim Jets, Belfast Trojans Development and Ulster University Elks one each.

The League was cancelled on and the Results declared null and void due to the COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic. They are presented here as an unofficial Provincial Conference, as with the Pandemic the League was rearranged into self-contained Conference with no inter-conference play before the government restrictions meant the cancellation of the league.


The American Football Ireland Flag Division One is the Second Level of Flag Football in Ireland. 15 teams entered the Division in 2020, bringing the total number of Flag Football teams in the League to 23.

Meath Bulldogs did not enter a team in 2020 after being relegated as well.

New teams to Division One for 2020 were Dublin City Quetzals, a team made up of former contact players from the Mexican League, who are over in Ireland working [Ref: 3], WIT Vikings from the Waterford Institute of Technology, as well as Flag Football teams of Contact Football teams Antrim Jets, Causeway Giants, Donegal Derry Vipers and North Kildare Reapers.
