The British Senior Flag League, organising 9v9 National Flag Football (non-contact American Football) since 1998, began organising a series of seasonal 5v5 Tournaments in 2001, beginning with the August 2001 Tournament hosted by Leicester Eagles at Belgrave RFC. Four teams entered: Birmingham Raiders were competitive but lost all six matches; North Devon Dogs from Barnstaple, finished with a 3-3 record, which was excellent considering it was their first tournament; and West Coast Offense from Glasgow and hosts Leicester Eagles. With the Tournament being decided on a Double Round-Robin League basis, the last match ended up the deciding match, and was won by West Coast Offense 7-6 versus the hosts.
