Travel Tournaments


The NYGFL sends several teams to tournaments around the country each year. Teams span the open and women's divisions, several skill levels, and varied missions. This page includes the general info for the tournaments, New York's teams, and how to get involved. If your question isn't answered here, feel free to email

We also suggest you join the NGFFL Facebook Page for news from the national board and updates from leagues across the nation. 

Gay Bowl XVIII - Denver

Gay Bowl XVIII will take place in Denver from September 13-16, 2018.

The NYGFL has sent teams to each Gay Bowl, and we will do so again this year. This year we are sending five teams to Denver to compete in the A, B, C & Women's Divisions.

Gay Bowl XIX - New York

We are bringing Gay Bowl back to New York in 2019! As we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Uprising, we look forward to hosting teams from around North America to our great city. 

Planning for the tournament has already begun, but we are always looking for more volunteers to help make this event the best it can be! If interested, please email
