With the IFAF Flag Football World Championships fast approaching, the Great Britain Men’s and Women’s Flag Football teams have launched a GoFundMe page to support our teams in Pajulahti, Finland. Team GB will be competing 27-30 August in the tournament which will be the first step on the road to the Los Angeles Olympic Games in 2028.

Achievement: GB Women – Current European champions and adult and youth level

Although BAFA provides support, currently there is no key sponsor in place for international competition and with costs of rising due additional financial burden is placed on athletes.

Danika Scargill, Team manager for GB Women’s Flag said: “Flag football has been elevated to follow Olympic practices, with an athletes’ village, opening and closing ceremonies, in-competition random drug testing and a range of other activities. Importantly the cost of staying in the athletes’ village has increased to suit, along with the cost-of-living rise.

“Until we can source sponsorship the athletes and coaches have to personally fund the tournament, be this travel, accommodation and pitches at training camps in the UK or travel to Finland, plus the cost of the athletes’ village during the tournament. We have established the GoFundMe page to reduce the financial impact.”
