As the preeminent professional flag football league in the United States, the AFFL is cutting-edge entertainment played by world-class athletes. The 2018 US Open of Football will be an opportunity for players of all athletic backgrounds to play against former professionals, have fun, potentially win thousands of dollars and stake their claim as professional flag football players.
Jeff Lewis, a native of New York City, is the Founder & CEO of the American Flag Football League. The inspiration for the AFFL was sparked when Jeff was on the sidelines of his son Hayden’s flag football game and pondered, “what would this sport look like if it was played by the greatest players in the world?” With that, the AFFL was born.
As an avid sports fan, Jeff has a wealth of knowledge and passion for the game of football. He leads all aspects of the AFFL and was instrumental in putting on the AFFL Launch Game, the first ever professional flag football game, in June in San Jose. The game featured several football stars including Michael Vick, Chad Ochocinco and Terrell Owens, among other former pros.
Prior to launching the AFFL, Jeff spent 30 years as a bond trader and hedge fund manager.
