The Tennessee Titans and the Williamson County Sports Conference are partnering to make history, forming the first interscholastic all-girls flag football league in the state.
The announcement came on Tuesday and the sport is expected to be opened up to young ladies in high school in the nine schools in the county starting in the spring of 2022.
“I’d like to extend a huge thank you to Williamson County and the TSSAA for helping us bring this vision to life,” Titans Senior Vice President, Chief Marketing & Revenue Officer Gil Beverly said. “Creating more opportunities for young women in our state to grow their passion for football is a huge priority of ours and we’re thrilled to take a big step forward with this partnership.”
The league will consist of nine teams that will play a six-game schedule over the course of an eight-week season.
Every team will qualify for the league championship, which could take place at Nissan Stadium in May, depending on the availability of the field.
