[LiveStream] IFAF Americas Flag Football Championships 2023 Live Free Tv Broadcast
The 2023 International Federation of American Football (IFAF) Americas Continental Flag Football Championship will be held from July 5-7 at the United States Performance Center (USPC) located at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC). The championship brings together the best men’s and women’s flag football national teams from North and South America.
It is the first of three Continental Championships taking place this year as IFAF embarks on its biggest-ever cycle of global flag football competition in the run up to the 2024 IFAF Flag Football World Championships in Lahti, Finland.
The Continental Championships will serve as a qualifying pathway for the first time, with the reinforced global competitions structure reflecting flag football’s momentum as one of the world’s fastest-growing sports.
Panama went winless on day one, but were faced with the toughest schedule, losing to USA, Mexico and to Canada, who currently sit in third place in the standings, by a score of 33-20.
“It’s been a tough day and we lost, but I feel like it was really hard and we could have done better, but it’s okay because we’re still going to play for the third or fourth place,” said wide receiver Tatiana Dos Santos. “It’s been frustrating, but I trust my team forever and I know we’ll rise from this point.”
Frustrated by a narrow two-point loss to Mexico, Canada recovered to beat Panama and moved to a 2-1 record with a 40-12 win over winless Chile, to set up a must-win meeting with the United States if they are to advance to the championship game.
