-Wearable sports technology company introduces nighttime gaming after extensive field-testing in UK and USA -
14 October 2015 – AfterDark Technologies, a sports-technology company dedicated to changing how and when sports can be played, has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter for the AfterDark Flag Football Kit — a fibre optic and interactive LED kit so players can play flag football in the evenings without the cost or inconvenience of floodlit fields.
Flag football is the non-contact form of American or tackle football. In flag football, physical tackles are replaced by pulling flags worn by players –making the sport more accessible to different ages and types of players. Today flag football has an estimated 20 million players worldwide, and a growing presence in mainland Europe and the UK.
