This weekend, the Flag Football World Championship Tour (FFWCT) is eager to host the Battle Orlando Flag Football National Championships. The games kick off on Saturday, the 27th, and continue through the main event on Sunday – the 4v4 championship game, which will be televised on Fox Sports and NBC Sports.

FFWCT teamed up with Focused TV Productions and Fox Sports to provide televised access to the many flag football fans who can’t make it to the tournament, and those who want to relive the experience. James Bates, who led the Florida Gators to their 1996 National Championship, and has since won three Emmy Awards for his broadcasting talents, will give the play-by-play. The main event can be viewed on Saturday, February 24th and 25th at various times, depending upon the viewer’s regional network.

The show will be viewable nationwide by satellite or locally through the regional networks below.
