Plans are in the works for a new American Flag Football League featuring former NFL players, and it’s a fantastic idea. Retired quarterback Michael Vick and running back Justin Forsett will play in a test game in June, according to ESPN’s Darren Rovell.
The game will be played on June 27 at Avaya Stadium in San Jose, Calif. Unfortunately, it won’t air live on television. But it will be available to stream after the game, and we will absolutely watch the hell out of it.
Authentic Kids Markus Golden Jersey Financier Jeff Lewis is the man behind the American Flag Football League, and he got the idea from watching his young son play flag football. The league will field eight different teams and will launch in 2018.
For the Chargers, this means the team will remain at the StubHub Center through the 2019 season. Despite the delay, the team doesn’t sound too discouraged to be playing in a smaller environment like the StubHub Center.
Taijuan Walker Limited Jersey I’m looking forward to it because it takes you back, head coach Anthony Lynn said. It’s a really intimate environment, like college or high school if you’re from Texas! I’ve been there a few times, and every time I go I can’t wait to get there and play. I think it’s going to be fun.
The StubHub Center has a capacity of just 27,000. The Chargers have already sold out their tickets for the 2017 season.
The Rams, on the other hand, will continue to play their games at the Coliseum through 2019. The team’s statement said that despite renovations that are already underway at the Coliseum, the team will make efforts to make the fan experience at games better before they’re finished.
The delay is unfortunate for everybody involved, but it doesn’t sound like there will be much trouble in working around it.
