The NFL and the International Federation of American Football (IFAF) added some new faces to the Global Flag Football Ambassadors Team to help further grow the game worldwide.

Former NFL legends Izell Reese and Aeneas Williams, along with Chicago Bears WR Chase Claypool and DL Sammis Reyes were among the newest members to be added to an "all-star team of men and women, including current American and flag football players, Legends, coaches and officials, as ambassadors who will work together to raise the profile and promote the unique values of one of the world's fastest-growing sports."

You may have heard the NFL has been reworking the Pro Bowl this year in an effort to make the week-long event more enjoyable for the athletes and fans who come out to show support for their favorite teams/players. Taking place in Las Vegas, the rejuvenated Pro Bowl Games will feature an exciting new format that brings flag football into the limelight.

According to the NFL Football Operations, flag football is positioned to grow exponentially as an integral piece of the NFL's domestic and international participation and development strategies. Furthermore, the IFAF announced their plans to launch the biggest cycle of elite international flag competition, including full continental representation for the first time ever in 2023. 

“Flag football is an incredibly inclusive sport and I’ve seen it positively impact youth athletes and bring communities together,” said Reese. “I’m honored to have the opportunity to aid in growing the game globally and look forward to making it accessible for all.”

Here's a full list of the newest members to join the Global Flag Football Ambassadors Team:
