American football (touch, not tackle)

15 Feb 2007

Teams wanted for campus league

I am writing to see if anyone is interested in playing some American football (touch, not tackle). What I am looking to do is organize a bunch of teams on campus, of about 8-10 in number, for 7 on 7 matches. With the growing popularity of the sport here in Great Britain, as well as the significant quantity of North American students here in Manchester, I am sure we could launch something quite quickly. It could be organized according to department/school or in some other fashion, much like the soccer "league" already in place.

The idea is that the league would be open to both staff and students. We could start with something informally and then proceed to implement something more concrete.

If you are interested in playing, please email me at:

I look forward to hearing from you!
