Event schedule and times

For our tournament we will use our i9 Sports Arena Flag Football style rules as they are a popular four-on-four  game filled with fun and action. In this game, the offensive team plays for a touchdown in the end zone. Running and passing plays are allowed, although there are “no-running zones” near each goal line. The offensive team can not run a running play when the line of scrimmage is in a “no-running zone.”   The defensive team covers receivers, rushes the passer and grabs flags to make “tackles.”

The Basics

  • A coin toss determines first possession.
  • Games are two 15 minute halves
  • The offensive team takes possession of the ball at the initial scrimmage line and has four plays to score a touchdown. If the offense fails to score, the ball changes possession and the new offensive team takes over on the same 5 yard line. 
  • All possession changes start on the initial scrimmage line.  Interceptions may be run back for a touchdown.  However, if the defense fails to score a touchdown on the interception return, they will begin their drive at the five.
  • Field dimensions are: 25 yards long X 20 yards wide with 5 yard end zone and with a 5 yard no-run zone before the goal line.
  • Play will ALWAYS start from the Initial Scrimmage Line and will always go in the same direction.
