Packers to host Salute to Service flag football tournament Saturday at Titletown

Posted Nov 1, 2017

Tournament between five branches of the armed forces to raise money for morale funds


As part of the organization’s Salute to Service efforts, the Green Bay Packers are hosting a flag football tournament featuring five teams, one from each branch of the military, on Saturday, Nov. 4, at the football field at Titletown.

Fans are invited to attend the tournament, which begins at 10 a.m. with matchups between Air Force and Coast Guard teams on the east side of the field, and Army National Guard and Navy teams on the west side of the field, with the Marines team having a bye in the first round.

Singer/songwriter Franki Jo Moscato will sing the national anthem, and the UW-Green Bay ROTC will present the colors. A flyover will also be performed by Warbird Pilot Paul Walter from Milwaukee, flying a post-WWII North American T28 Trojan.

Round-robin pool play will finish at 1:30 p.m., with the single elimination tournament beginning at 1:35 p.m.

Bleachers will be available for fans, and Titletown’s tables and chairs will be available for use. No carry-in furniture or folding chairs are permitted. Fans are reminded to dress for the weather, and are welcome to bring umbrellas.

Athletic trainers from Bellin Health will also be on-hand for tournament participants and to share information about their new Titletown facility with fans at the event.

Long-sleeved Salute to Service shirts will be for sale throughout the event for $10 apiece, with proceeds divided evenly among the morale funds of each team.

The winning team’s morale fund will also receive an additional $2,000 donation, and the runner-up will receive a $1,000 donation.

The donations are possible through the NFL’s 2017 Salute to Service Team Program Grant through the NFL Foundation.
