In 2022, with the help of the NGFFL and Mallory Williams, Director of the Women’s+ Division, Women’s+ teams and tournament play saw incredible growth and development. Building off this momentum, and a successful and fun 2021 pre-Gay Bowl scrimmage between NY/Philly/DC, we hosted a new tournament MDW 2023. We will be back again next year so be on the look out for more info :) See this amazing coverage of the Philly Special on CBS Philly!
Aptly named “The Philly Special,” after a notorious football play popularized by the Eagles (Go Birds!), the tournament took place in the heart of Philadelphia on the Saturday and Sunday of MDW, 2023. The tournament was structured like other tournaments in the circuit, with pool play on Day 1 and semis/finals on Day 2. We utilize NGFFL rules and NGFFL trained Refs during the tournament. In the first year we hosted 7 teams from DC, New England, Providence, NY, and Philly.
And parties? Of course there will be parties! We work with a local Philadelphia women’s party promoter and other sponsors to create amazing tournament parties. The Philly special is a healthy mix of competition and fun that you’ve all come to appreciate.
