National Flag Football, the nation’s #1 NFL flag program in the country announced today that two new flag football technologies will be in action at the 2020 Flag Football National Championships: The Road to Tampa, presented by Busch Gardens and Xenith. The event will take place at the Tournament Sportsplex of Tampa Bay in Tampa, Fl, January 17-19.

This year, during all final championship games, players will utilize the Xenith Loop, the most comfortable and highest performing headgear designed specifically for flag and non-tackle football. The revolutionary halo silhouette of Xenith Loop makes it breathable, and its secure fit and material technology yields a chinstrap unnecessary. “Xenith Loop is the first ever purpose-built protective headgear for the non-tackle football athlete. Entering into the non-tackle space supports our mission to be with our athletes in playing, training, and living, and allows us another opportunity to contribute to the great game of football,” said Ryan Sullivan, CEO, Xenith.

In addition, National Flag Football’s Magic Flag belt technology will be utilized during the finals. Magic Flag allows players to effortlessly put their flags back after a flag pull. “We kept hearing feedback that some of the conventional flag belts, over time, would wear out and need replacing. That doesn’t happen with Magic Flag,” said Francis Meram, Executive Director, National Flag Football. “The Magic Flag technology uses magnetized flags with consistent pull force no matter how many pulls of the flag. We know the kids are going to really like these flags.”

This annual event will host over 240 teams from five countries competing across 14 age group divisions. Final championship games will be livestreamed on the National Flag Football’s You Tube Channel,
