About the Vienna Constables
You are currently visiting the homepage of the Austrian flag football team the VIENNA CONSTABLES. We are a Viennese-based team, which was founded in 1997. In 2001 we entered into the newly formed Austrian Flag League (now renamed Flag League Austria - FLA) and haveparticipated every year since then.
We won the league in 2006, 2008 and 2009 which makes us a three-time national champion team, coming in at third place antoher four times over the years. A big step forward was taken 2013 when the FLA2 team was set up to be ready for future challenges. Our homepage is not yet available in two languages but we would be happy to answer your questions about concerning playing flag football our team or taking part in another way.
Our practice field is located at PSV-Platz, Dampfschiffhaufen 2, 1220 Vienna.

Vienna Constables Teams:
In 2014 members of the club found their places in three different teams. The FLA team fought for national championship glory in the highest domestic league (Flag League Austria). If you are interested in taking part, you should be athletic and willing to practice twice a week with one weekly training session the whole year long. Gamedays will be held in Vienna, Lower Austria, Graz and Linz.
In a ddition to this we also have a team in the second level of Austrian Flag Football, where it is possible to train once a week between March and October. So if you want to experience flag football without having any prior football knowledge you're more then welcome here. Of course a football background is ok too and if you just want to invest one time a week. As the league consists mostly of teams from Vienna and Lower Austria, travelling to the games is limited.
2015 will be the first time an all-female league - the Flag Liga Ladies - will take place. We are going to be part of this historic event and are still looking for more women to take part!
In 2014 we also set up a youth program , so please contact us if you are between 10 and 18 years old. We're one of the first Austrian flag football teams to go in this direction and develop their future starters from within! Our junior team well be taking part in the FLJ - the Flag Liga Juniors.
Last but not least the Vienna Constables are going to take part in the so-called Flag Liga Start (FLS), which is a series of non-league one-day tournaments. This consists of a mixture of alumnis, who don't have time to spend on training, friends who join in from time to time, and first-timers play together without much training beforehand.
Season (for all teams) usually starts in May, culminating in the Flag Bowl - the final for the national championship, which is traditionally on the first weekend of October. All gamedays are on weekends with about three games on one gameday (1 game lasts 2x 20min, which translates to approx. 60-70min/game overall).
