The spotlight is on the trailblazers of girls flag football in Georgia. The Atlanta Falcons just unveiled a new 30 ft Dynamic wall display at Mercedes Benz stadium and it's dedicated to the young women playing High School flag football. Did you know that Georgia became the fourth state in the US to offer girls flag football as an official sanctioned sport in 2020? The Atlanta Falcons and the Arthur M Blank Family Foundation have worked to elevate girls flag football to be a sanctioned sport in Georgia and coordination with the Georgia High School Association.
This new wall you can see at Mercedes Benz Stadium features eight girls flag football championship banners, four dynamic digital video boards and over 600 Flags which represent each participating High School. The Falcons and the Blank Family Foundation have made this significant investment in high school girls flag football in order to support and promote gender equality in sports. This weekend the Falcons will host the second annual High School showcase and the women's flag finals.
