NFL Europe disbanded in 2007 (and there was no France team anyway), but there is an American football league in France: the Féderation française de football américain (click Les clubs to see if there’s a team near you). The various clubs have teams at several levels, from flag football to Elite if your kids want to play. They also have cheerleading teams. The EIFA runs summer football camps too.

Check out the site of the Argonautes from Aix en Provence, where you’ll find a schedule of games and practices. They’ve got a boutique too! What better gift for a francophile football fan than Frenchy football stuff?
