The Chicago Metropolitan Sports Association is pleased to announce that Pride Bowl XI will take place on June 28th and 29th, 2019. The event will once again be held on Chicago's Montrose Lakeside Fields.
Pride Bowl will have two divisions "Open" and "Women's"
In all divisions pool play will take place on Friday (3 games per team) and Saturday will feature multiple knockout and consolation brackets (A, B, C based on Friday's results).
All teams must be sponsored by a dues paying NGFFL city in order to play in Pride Bowl XII. This sponsorship simply means that a city takes responsibility for the actions of a team and its players during Pride Bowl XI.
Rules: 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 be modified during pool play
Social Events: Social events will be scheduled each night beginning Thursday June 27th culminating with the Chicago Pride Parade on Sunday June 30th.
Registration (opens March 11th):
March 11th-May 24th: $70/player
May 25th - June 14th: $95/player
June 15th - June 26th: $120/player
The open division is limited to 24 teams. The women's division is limited to 8 teams.
Players may request a 100% refund prior to May 1st. After May 1st, a 50% refund can be requested. No refunds will be given after June 1st.
All of us in Chicago look forward to welcoming you back for one of the best weekends of the year in our town.
