Hey Flagfootballfanatics! Register now for BIG BOWL VII!

The Walldorf Wanderers Flagfootballteam and its supporters invite you to the biggest flagfootball tournament in all of Germany and Europe!

Since 2007 we are successfully hosting this tournament with 38 participating teams from 7 foreign nations and all over Germany. These Elite-Teams play each other in the Senior-, Youth- or Women Competition.

This year’s edition of the Big Bowl will take place from June 1st to 2nd 2013 at TGS Walldorf Sports Complex, Okriftler Straße 6, Mörfelden-Walldorf. Walldorf is 12 minutes from Frankfurt Rhein-Main International Airport and is easily accessible via Autobahn A5 and A3.

Last chance for registration is May 13th 2013! By that time the starting-fee of €70 per team (including trophies and 12 bottles of water) has to be booked. If you pay cash on Gameday the fee will increase to €90. You will get payment information after your registration, which you can send to:

bigbowl [at] walldorf-wanderers.com

Please note that games start at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday and Sunday! Teams are asked to take game times into account of their travel plans! We recommend to use Friday as travel day and stay at our complex for two nights. Accommodation possibilities below!

We only accept reliable registrations! Teams are not registered until the starting fee is booked!

Rules

The tournament will be played by the 5-on-5 Non-Contact-Rules 2011 by the EFAF.

Players eligible for the competitions

Senior – Players of all ages and genders

Women – Female players only

Youth – Players of all ages and genders under 17 years of age

It is possible to play for more than one team, as long as the teams do not play in the same competition or play in the youth and women’s competition. Juveniles and women can play for a senior team besides their original teams in one of the other competitions.

The organizers explicitly welcome additional women teams, which get together from different senior teams right before game day!

Timing

Game-Clock will be 24 minutes running time with a halftime intermission. In the playoffs each team will get one time-out. We try to prolong playoff games by 6 minutes, so we can play two halves of 15 minutes.

Equipment

Metalcleats are not allowed. In Senior-Competition the will be a official-sized gameball. Youth-sized gameballs are only permitted in Women- and Youth-Competition. Flags have to be from the “Plop”-Category. In Youth-Competition Velcro-flags are allowed.

Referees

Because of complaints in the last few years we will not have official referees at Big Bowl V. We will have a referee-plan for each team, with detailed information which games are called by which team. In the playoffs we will have only the the best referee-crews from the first two days. Those will get a little pay.

Accommodation

Showers, Toilettes and changing rooms are located directly next to the playing fields.

If you give us notice in advance in time, it is possible to stay at our gymnasium or in a tent at the Sports Complex. But space is limited to five to six tents at the maximum!
