LGBTQ+ flag football league announces Seattle as site of 2023 Gay Bowl XXIII

On Monday, the National Gay Flag Football League (NGFFL) announced Seattle as the site of its annual tournament, Gay Bowl XXIII, to be hosted by the Cascade Flag Football Association (CFFA) in 2023.

Gay Bowl is an annual competition hosted by the NGFFL and includes teams from across the United States and Canada. The league is LGBTQ+ inclusive and invites all people to participate as players, officials and fans. According to United Sports Seattle (USS), approximately 2,000 athletes, coaches, officials and fans are expected to travel to Seattle for the tournament.

The proposed dates for Gay Bowl XXIII 2023 will be Indigenous Peoples Day weekend, October 5-8.

For the tournament, USS secured an initial permit from Seattle Parks and Recreation to host games at Magnuson Park in North Seattle.

This spring, you can find CFFA playing Saturdays at Cal Anderson Park in Seattle’s Capitol Hill neighborhood.

The winning bid was managed by USS, in partnership with the Seattle Sports Commission, on behalf of the CFFA.
