Did you know that flag football is enjoyed today by more than 20 million people, but hasn’t changed since the 1940s?
For the last two years, the team here at AfterDark Technologies has worked around the clock to create a series of innovative, lighted uniforms and equipment that enables athletes of all ages to play flag football after the sun sets without the need or cost of renting a lighted field. We’ve partnered with players and teams in Europe and across the US - from Massachusetts to Texas to California - to field test the gear for performance and durability.
Whether it’s kids playing in the backyard, in organized youth flag leagues, or full 7-on-7 teams in college intramurals or adult social and athletic leagues playing to strict rules, we’ve consistently heard how much players and teams love our nighttime kit. One tester described it like “playing in the world of TRON.”
Today, we are changing the playing field - literally - with fiber-optics and interactive LED technology. We’ve moved beyond just helping busy athletes extend their playing time when the sun goes down and avoid the expense and hassle of finding lighted fields. We are bringing a new level of interactivity, technology, and excitement to flag football and changing the game!
We’re at a really exciting stage in our company’s evolution. We’ve completed our research, perfected and tested our prototypes, found manufacturers and are ready to go to full-scale production in early 2016!
We are thrilled to announce that the AfterDark Flag Football Kit launches on Kickstarter on Friday, October 9.
Our challenge now is to make sure that the people who will benefit and delight in the AfterDark Flag Football Experience will hear about us, which is why we are asking for your help. And while we are always grateful for your financial support, we most certainly need the help of those most passionate flag footballers out there to spread the word!
