Players eligible for the competitions

Senior – Players of all ages and genders

Women – Female players only

It is possible to play for more than one team, as long as the teams do not play in the same competition or play in the youth and women’s competition. Juveniles and women can play for a senior team besides their original teams in one of the other competitions.

The organizers explicitly welcome additional women teams, which get together from different senior teams right before game day!


Game-Clock will be 24 minutes running time with a halftime intermission. In the playoffs each team will get one time-out. We try to prolong playoff games by 6 minutes, so we can play two halves of 15 minutes.


Metalcleats are not allowed. In Senior-Competition the will be a official-sized gameball. Youth-sized gameballs are only permitted in Women- and Youth-Competition. Flags have to be from the “Plop”-Category. In Youth-Competition Velcro-flags are allowed.


Because of complaints in the last few years we will not have official referees at Big Bowl V. We will have a referee-plan for each team, with detailed information which games are called by which team. In the playoffs we will have only the the best referee-crews from the first two days. Those will get a little pay.


Showers, Toilettes and changing rooms are located directly next to the playing fields.

If you give us notice in advance in time, it is possible to stay at our gymnasium or in a tent at the Sports Complex. But space is limited to five to six tents at the maximum!
