The Buffalo Bills, an esteemed NFL franchise, recently declared its sponsorship of a new chapter of the National Gay Flag Football League (NGFFL) in Buffalo, as reported by The Post Millennial.

This move marks Buffalo as the 28th city to welcome an NGFFL team, joining the ranks of other cities with teams sponsored by the Giants, Patriots, Jets, Dolphins, Cardinals, Bears, Commanders, and Seahawks.

The NGFFL, a nonprofit sports organization, has been in operation since 2002. The league's Commissioner, Joel Horton, expressed his enthusiasm for the new chapter, stating, "We are thrilled to bring inclusive flag football to Buffalo with the support of the Buffalo Bills. This exciting addition joins 27 other cities, and over 4,000 players, including straight allies, in the National Gay Flag Football League."

Horton further elaborated on the league's mission, saying, "Our mission is to unite the community through the spirit of competition while celebrating our diversity. By fostering an environment where everyone is welcome, we aim to build a stronger, more inclusive Buffalo. Together, with the backing of the Buffalo Bills, we are creating a space where all individuals can participate, compete, and thrive."
