Scheduled for the upcoming holiday weekend, October 14-16, the event will be held at the Roscow A.L. Davies Soccer Field at the Baillou Hills Sporting Complex, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 2 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Sunday.

BAFF representative Vincent Marshall expressed the teams’ anticipation of the event.
“We are looking forward to strengthening our relationship with the BFFL and participating in this tournament is a great way to support our colleagues in flag football. Altogether I think our teams bring the intensity that only the GB teams have, we play a different game from the Nassau teams so we plan on bringing that to the party this year,” he said.
