Want to hear a bold prediction? Before long, flag football will be more popular than regular football.

Ok ok, maybe that’s too bold. But it’s not unreasonable to think that flag football will steal some of the big boys’ market share.

It has all the drama of the contact game, but without the feeling that you’re watching a roided-out Squid Game. I guess what I’m saying is that we’re going to need more flag football team names.

The Best Flag Football Names for 2024

Whether it’s a rec league, youth football, or the powderpuff game, we’ve got you covered with flag football names.

If you’re starting a pro flag football league, on the other hand, call us. We’ll set you up with some custom flag football team names for your league.

And they’ll be way better than the ones we give these yutzes for free (sorry, yutzes).

Catching Fields

This name is also one of my favorite picks for a coed softball team names.

Parents’ Embarrassments

Maybe winning a rec league championship will make up for the fact that you were cut from the varsity team?

Alligator Army


That’s Gonna Hurt

Once you reach a certain age, it doesn’t have to be tackle football for you to feel it in the morning.

Smashmouth All-Stars

Some Quit in ‘Em

To make it to the NFL, there has to be no quit in you. For everyone else, there’s at least some quit in them.

Giving 75%

This follows the same principle as the last flag football name. For NFL players, you have to give 110%.

For the rest of us, giving 75% is pretty solid.

Wounded Ducks

People’s Champs

You might not be the champs in the standings, but maybe you are the People’s Champs?

Returning Chumps

Passing Fancy

This flag football name could pass for a funny women’s volleyball team name.

Dying Quails

Not Gonna Lie, They Had Us In the First Half

Maybe go with Had Us In the First Half if you’re in one of those lame leagues with character limits.

Running Wild
