The Sheffield Superbowl is around the corner!
The Sheffield Superbowl is around the corner!

An exciting new project in Sheffield is returning for 2020. In Partnership with NFL UK Sheffield Schools have the opportunity to take part in a Flag Football programme. 20 schools have received teacher training to deliver a 6-week Flag Football programme during physical education lessons and extra-curricular clubs. In addition to lesson plans and activity ideas, school will receive American footballs and flag belts. Schools will then be invited to attend a Flag Football competition at Concord Sports Centre in May. NFL UK and the Sheffield Giants American Football team will deliver the competition following an American Football theme with play offs and a Superbowl final to determine the winner. On the day NFL UK provide team t-shirts and a number of other fun prizes for the children. Competition winners will progress to play at the London Stadium and meet some NFL players before a weekend game. Plans are in place to extend the programme with more schools and create junior flag football teams at the Sheffield Giants.
