The NFL’s Jacksonville Jaguars are offering American Football fans in the UK the chance to win a trip to the 2018 Super Bowl in their annual seven-a-side flag football tournament.

London will host the southern regional heat of the Jaguars Se7ens Cup at the Hive on September 9, with 38 teams battling it out in the non-contact tournament for a place in the final at Allianz Park on September 22.

The winner of London’s heat will represent the South against the North’s best team for the chance of a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the sport’s biggest event.

American football is one of the fastest growing sports in the UK and the Jacksonville Jaguars have been working hard to get more people involved in the game.

One of their initiatives, which will be running alongside the tournament, is the JagTag programme.

JagTag is a simplified, non-contact form of American football that’s easy to pick up, suitable for all ages and abilities, and with a proven track record of engaging children in sport.

Now designated as one of Sport England’s official satellite club programmes, the sport has established itself a perfect way to helping children get active - and stay active.

The Jaguars’ Se7ens Cup is the perfect chance to try a new sport and enjoy a family day out. Coaches will be on hand to teach the JagTag fundamentals and there will be a fun obstacle course on site to keep all members of the family entertained.

For those who fancy themselves as a quarterback, they can put their arm to the test for the chance to win awesome Jags prizes.

Jaguars merchandise will also be on sale for fans to kit themselves out in ahead of the International Series game vs the Baltimore Ravens at Wembley on September 24.

Finally, when the youngsters are tired out, families can relax and enjoy the music, food and drinks whilst checking out the intense competition on the Se7ens pitches. To find out more go to jagscampandacademy.com.
