The First Flight League (FFL) is the first state-wide full season competitive adult developmental league in the state of North Carolina. The FFL is operated by club owners and for club owners. We believe that clubs working together in our region is the key to sustainability.  Each FFL club is individually owned and operated and must meet and maintain league standards.
