Celebrity Sweat®, the #1 celebrity lifestyle show now entering Season 6, showcasing hundreds of athletes and celebrities, is back and taking over Miami with the 20th annual Celebrity Flag Football Challenge® presented by SunTrust as part of the “SunTrust Confidence Classic.” The Celebrity Flag Football Challenge will take place (Super Bowl weekend) February 1st – noon to 3:00pm at FIU; doors open as early as 10:30am for Tailgating activation.
The Game will feature more than 25 athletes and celebrities led by NFL Quarterback Legend Doug Flutie, this year taking on NFL Alumni Favorite Donovan McNabb, with NFL Hall of Fame Captains Michael Irvin and Andre Reed. The roster will also include NBA favorites such as Hall of Famer Tracy McGrady, Miami Heat Alumni Star Carlos Arroyo, UFC Fighter Tyron Woodley and Yoel Romero, as well actors from the HBO TV show Ballers – Chris Lofton, Donovan Carter and Carl McDowell.

This year more than a dozen groups will be included from DOD Channels, Homeland Security and First Responders to non-profit organizations such as Wounded Warrior Project, K9s for Warriors, Heroes Sports and others. New this year for the 20th anniversary, Celebrity Sweat and SunTrust are dedicating the entire end zone to the Military, creating the “MILITARY FAN ZONE.”
