On Tuesday, the Buffalo Bills announced that the franchise will sponsor a new National Gay Flag Football League (NGFFL) chapter in the city. Buffalo will be the 28th city to have an NGFFL team. Other teams including the Giants, Patriots, Jets, Dolphins, Cardinals, Bears, Commanders, and Seahawks have already sponsored NGFFL chapters.

The nonprofit sports organization began operations in 2002. NGFFL Commissioner Joel Horton said in a statement, "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 added, "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."

VP of Community Impact for the Bills, Michelle Roberts, said, "We are excited to join the NFL and other Clubs across the league in their support of the NGFFL. Through our sponsorship, we are looking forward to expanding the impact of the NGFFL in our community."

The NGFFL stated on its website that collaboration is a "game-changer for bringing LGBTQ+ organized football to Buffalo," adding that "Collaborations with NFL teams in shared markets go beyond financial support; they are genuine community partnerships. Our NFL supporters have opened their facilities to LGBTQ+ football practices and warmly welcomed players, fostering a more inclusive environment in their cities."
