BEDFORD, NH - Vitality Sports Group is proud to be the latest affiliate to join the National Flag Football Battle Circuit. The Battle Circuit is one of the largest youth flag football tournament series in the country, partnering with the Flag Football World Championship Tour to bring you the highest level events possible. Featuring more than 10 tour stop locations, the concept is to provide children a season ending celebration tournament after each spring and fall season.
Vitality Sports' entry in the Battle Circuit will take place on November 18th, when they host the New England Autumn Classic, a youth 5v5 tournament held at the Seacoast United Sports Complex in Epping, NH. The winner of each division will be granted a spot in the 2019 Flag Football National Championships held in Orlando Florida.
Mike Burnett, co-found of Vitality Sports, says the decision to join the Battle Circuit was easy.
"National Flag Football and the FFWCT is a recognized brand with little footprint in the New England region. Vitality Sports is looking forward to bringing the brand and level of competition to the New England states and provide local athletes with an opportunity to compete against some of the best teams in the country," Burnett said.
"Flag Football is the fastest growing sport in America, and providing the opportunity for athletes in New England to compete in a nationally-recognized event is exciting," added co-founder Chris Maye.
The trio of Burnett, Maye, and Joe Proulx hope that November's event is just the start of a booming flag tournament market in New Hampshire.
"The Autumn Classic is just the launching point for us," said Proulx. "We're looking to expand to several events next year, bringing even more great teams from throughout the northeast and really cultivating a best-in-class tournament experience for every family that attends."
The site of November's event, the Seacoast United Sports Complex in Epping, NH, will go a long way in making that happen. Featuring four full-turf fields, ample parking, and a brand new indoor complex featuring a restaurant and bar, the space is primed to host a regional event of this magnitude.
