Football Championships

U.S. National Teams go head-to-head against the best teams in North America and around the world.

This is what high school football athletes aim, work and play for: the chance to represent our country and wear the stars and stripes in international competition as members of the U.S. National Team. From annual games against Canada to international multi-country gold-medal tournaments, play against the world’s best.

THE GAMES OF CHAMPIONS

The best game anywhere, played by the best everywhere. There are multiple opportunities for middle school and high school football players to achieve a singular goal: taking the field to determine who’s best in the country, continent and world.

International Bowl

Owned by USA Football and supported by Football Canada and International Federation of American Football, the largest annual international football competition brings together the U.S. National Under-16, Under-17, Under-18 and Under-19 teams to compete against Canada during a two-week series of games that also features American Under-14 and Under-15 teams.

North American Championship

The new North American Championship is another chance for student-athletes on the U.S. National Team to face off against Canada. Starting with a week of practice and activities, it is capped off by Under-18 and Under-19 games on the day before one of the biggest events on the NFL calendar: the Pro Bowl.

IFAF World Championship

Every two years, countries from around the globe earn their way to the International Federation of American Football World Championship, where they play for a gold medal and worldwide bragging rights. Past teams have traveled to games in Austria, China, Italy, Japan and Kuwait as well as tournaments within the United States.
