LOS ANGELES, CA. – USA Football, the sport’s governing body in the U.S. and a member of the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee (USOPC), partnered with HomeTeam Live for the organization’s Week at The One presented by Under Armour®, a series of elite flag football competitions at Dignity Health Sports Park, home of the five-time MLS Cup winners, LA Galaxy, from July 11-14, 2024.

HomeTeam will bring coverage to flag football fans across the country, streaming all games at

HomeTeam Live made its debut with USA Football in Charlotte at last year’s Week at The One and the IFAF Americas Continentals Championship.

“We are thrilled that HomeTeam Live is bringing flag football's fast-paced, creative and exciting gameplay to viewers around the world by broadcasting USA Football's Week at The One, presented by Under Armour," said Joe Banach, Director of Corporate & Strategic Partnerships for USA Football. "The Week at the One is home to USA Football's premier flag football events, including international and national tournaments. Flag football’s popularity and reach are accelerating at an unbelievable pace ahead of the sport's 2028 Olympic debut in Los Angeles. We're excited to provide a broadcast team and viewing experience that reflects the game's presence on the world's stage."

All the action begins on July 11 with the Junior International Cup, an international competition that brings together 15U and 17U Boys’ and Girls’ National Teams from around the world to compete in flag football. Canada, Japan, Mexico and Panama will field teams to compete alongside the U.S. this summer. The U.S. National Teams swept the gold medal podiums in 2023 while Japan claimed the silver medals. Many of the athletes competing in the Junior International Cup could be part of the next crop of Olympians when flag football makes its debut in the 2028 Summer Games in Los Angeles.

Also streaming are the Select Bowl games. Part of USA Football’s National Team Development Program, the Select Bowl features regional Select Teams across several age divisions. Select Team athletes receive help from their specially trained coaching staff to hone their skills and raise their games as they compete for future opportunities to try out for the U.S. National Team.

The week of exciting flag football action concludes with The One Flag Championship, presented by Under Armour, from July 12-14. The One is USA Football’s annual championship that spans youth and adult levels across more than ten divisions. For the past several months, the nation’s best club teams have competed in USA Football Sanctioned Tournaments and Qualifier Tournaments to earn their invitations to The One. U.S. National Team coaches and scouts will be on-hand during The One to identify athletes for invitations to 2025 U.S. National Team Trials.

All USA Football events feature the International Federation of American Football’s (IFAF) five-on-five rules to promote and maintain a consistent style of play that mirrors Olympic-style flag football. USA Football is the organization responsible for selecting and organizing Men’s and Women’s U.S. National Teams in federation-sanctioned international competition, including the 2028 Summer Games in Los Angeles.

Flag football’s popularity has grown substantially over the past decade and skyrocketed following the International Olympic Committee’s announcement in October 2023 that flag football be an Olympic sport in 2028. USA Football research shows the number of boys and girls ages 6-17 playing the sport increased 38% from 2014-23, reaching a peak of more than 1.6 million this past year. According to the NFL, flag football is played by 20 million people across more than 100 countries. 

Much of flag football’s growth in the U.S. is being driven by girls and women. High school girls’ flag football is now sanctioned as a varsity sport in 11 states – including California – and many more have pilot programs. These athletes now have chances to earn college scholarships and compete for a championship in flag football at the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) level.
