Women’s Tackle Football Is Taking Over DFW This Summer

UNT Apogee Stadium to Host Women’s National Football Conference (WNFC) Championship Game

DENTON: Texas-based Women's National Football Conference (WNFC) looks to continue breaking barriers in women's tackle football with IX Cup Championship weekend in DFW. adidas is returning as a title sponsor of the event, as a part of their breaking barriers initiative and commitment to removing barriers for women in sports. Riddell Sports has extended their partnership with the league and continues to show that they are a pioneer in support of the development of women's professional tackle football with their sponsorship of the IX Cup.

The IX Cup championship weekend (August 6-7, 2021) will be a series of events, conferences, camps, and celebrations dedicated to highlighting and empowering women and girls in sports. The IX Cup is named in honor of "Title IX," which is a Federal Law in the U.S. that bans discrimination or access to sports on the basis of sex.

The weekend will kick off with events on Friday night (Aug 6, 2021). The Championship Breakfast (last year's signature event which featured NFL alumni, adidas leadership, and more) will highlight a panel of professional football coaches, female leaders in sports/entertainment, players, WNFC executives, sponsors, and more. The group will discuss the growth and development of women and girls in sports (football). The event will culminate with the WNFC year-end awards (MVP, Rookie of the Year, Coach of the Year...).

During the weekend, multiple events will be held to highlight WNFC All-Stars, women’s college flag players, and more.

The weekend will culminate with a women’s empowerment conference, and the national championship game between the top two teams in women’s football hosted at University of North Texas’ Apogee Stadium.

Additional event sponsorship and partnerships opportunities are available for the event. Contact for more information.
