2020 Unified Flag Football Playoff Bracket

The Quarterfinal Round of the tournament kicks off on Saturday, December 8th.  The Semi-finals will be held on Tuesday, December 15th and the Unified Flag Football Championship game is scheduled for Friday, December 18.   The Semi-final game time is TBA while the Championship will kick off at 7pm. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and adhering to guidelines from the State, DPH and DIAA, this year's tournament games will take place and be hosted by higher seed teams.  The upcoming Unified flag football final will take a break from being played in conjunction with the DIAA Football playoffs due to limitations in member school’s DPH facility plans and State imposed permissible gathering limits. DIAA member schools will follow guidelines released in the Third Revision to the 27th Modification, adhering to gathering restrictions and their approved DPH facility plans.  Member schools where permitted, will allow spectators at events.  DIAA will work with member schools with livestream capability to stream the events.
