“We are honored to host the NIRSA National Flag Football Championships in the Sports Capital of Texas. This is a fantastic tournament and organization that I’ve been involved with for many years, from officiating as a student to volunteering as a young professional, so I am personally very proud and excited for this new role hosting the event,” Round Rock Sports Management and Tourism Director Chad McKenzie said. “We look forward to participants and spectators experiencing the state-of-the-art Round Rock Multipurpose Complex, our incredible staff, and the many outstanding amenities Round Rock has to offer.”
