In addition to the championship trophy, The Academy earned the biggest payday in the history of women’s professional football. The winning team took home the $200,000 grand prize, which is the same amount the AFFL awarded the men’s championship team.
The AFFL, the premier flag football organization in the world, introduced the women’s division this year in its fourth season of play. The league has attracted women’s football stars such as Vanita Krouch and Michelle Roque.
