The Buffalo Bills are proud to support the National Gay Flag Football League (NGFFL) with a sponsorship to launch a chapter in Buffalo. The NGFFL is a non profit sports organization that seeks to promote the positive social and athletic enjoyment of American flag football.

"We are thrilled to bring inclusive flag football to Buffalo with the support of the Buffalo Bills. This exciting addition joins 27 other cities, and over 4,000 players, including straight allies, in the National Gay Flag Football League," said NGFFL Commissioner Joel Horton.

This collaboration is a game-changer for bringing LGBTQ+ organized football to Buffalo. The Buffalo Bills join other supportive NFL teams including the Giants, Patriots, Jets, Dolphins, Cardinals, Bears, Commanders, and Seahawks in making our growing league even more inclusive.

"Our mission is to unite the community through the spirit of competition while celebrating our diversity. By fostering an environment where everyone is welcome, we aim to build a stronger, more inclusive Buffalo. Together, with the backing of the Buffalo Bills, we are creating a space where all individuals can participate, compete, and thrive," Horton continued.

The NGFFL has been in existence since 2002 and is growing steadily into major cities across the U.S. More information will be coming out soon on the league’s website detailing the exciting developments on the NGFFL in Buffalo.

"We are excited to join the NFL and other Clubs across the league in their support of the NGFFL," said Buffalo Bills Vice President of Community Impact, Michelle Roberts. "Through our sponsorship, we are looking forward to expanding the impact of the NGFFL in our community."
