About Flag Football

Flag Football is a non-contact version of American Football whereby teams (usually of 5) play on a smaller field (50 yards with two 10 yard endzones), using Flags tied around their waist which must be pulled of by the tackler. The aim as in American Football is to pass or run the ball into the opposition endzone, within a specified number of downs (attempts) – teams have four downs in which to reach the Halfway line or two lines close to either endzone, or the ball is turned over to the opposition. On completing either a touchdown (reaching the endzone) or one of the first down markers (ie the Halfway line or one of the other two lines) the down count starts at one again. A Touchdown is worth 6 points, and a conversion (which must be passed into the endzone) is worth one or two points depending on whether the scoring team opts to start from the 5 yard line or 20 yard line. There is no kicking, although in Irish Flag Football in the 1990s there was kicking and seven player teams. Teams are mixed (coed).

Report

The European Flag Football Junior Championship is the Under 13 and Under 15 Championship for the National Teams of Europe. All games were played in Rome’s Stadio Pasquale Giannattasio. It was Coed, both boys and girls played on the same teams.

Ireland entered the Under 13 Championship and reached the Final where they lost to the Netherlands 39-13.

They had earlier won their two opening games by big margins (32-14 against Austria and 49-19 against Germany) and beaten the Netherlands in a previous pool game.

It was the best showing by any Irish American Football International team ever to that point.

in 2012 Ireland failed to reproduce the form which saw them reach the U13 European Flag Football Junior Championship Final in 2010 as Netherlands repeated as victors. Ireland, however, did manage to win the Fair Play Trophy.
