Pride Bowl XI

The Chicago Metropolitan Sports Association is pleased to announce that Pride Bowl XI will take place on June 22nd and 23rd, 2018.  The event will once again be held on Chicago's Montrose Lakeside Fields.

Tournament Format/Divisions:

"Open A"
"Open B/C"

In all divisions pool play will take place on Friday (3 games per team) and Saturday will feature knockout brackets and consolation games.

All teams must be sponsored by a dues paying NGFFL city in order to play in Pride Bowl XI. This sponsorship simply means that a city takes responsibility for the actions of a team and its players during Pride Bowl XI.

:  We will use the NGFFL rulebook with the modifications listed below. (Note: This is for rules only--there is no out of town or straight/gay rule for team rosters). 

(1) Each game consists of two 25 Minute halves.

(2) Halftime is 5 minutes.

(3) Overtime will begin 1st and goal from the 20 yard line.

(4) Consolation games on day 2 will be played with 30 minute running clock halves (no college timing after the 2 minute warning). The only stoppages will be for team timeouts.

Social Events:  Social events will be scheduled each night beginning Thursday June 21st culminating with the Chicago Pride Parade on Sunday June 24th.

Registration (opens March 1st):

March 1st-May 11th: $52/player
May 12th - June 8th: $78/player
June 8th-June 21st: $104/player

The open divisions are limited to 14 teams each. The women's division is limited to 8 teams.

Players may request a 100% refund prior to May 11th, after May 5th players may request a 50% refund. No refunds will be given after June 8th.

All of us in Chicago look forward to welcoming you back for one of the best weekends of the year in our town.
