The National Football League alongside the Kenya Federation of American Football (KFAF) and the Ghana American Football Federation (GAFF) have officially announced a collaboration to host youth NFL FLAG football tournaments across both Kenya and Ghana in October. 

Hosting NFL FLAG programs in Kenya and Ghana is part of the NFL’s long term multi-market commitment to growing the game at all levels in Africa. 

Flag football is the non-contact version of American football, played by both boys and girls, and is one of the fastest-growing sports globally. Flag football is fun, exciting, and accessible for all, with women and girls driving some of the fastest growth in the sport.
