Former Atlanta Falcon Michael Vick will participate in an American Flag Football League trial game in June.

The American Flag Football League plans to launch eight teams in 2018 that will hopefully attract former NFL players and standout college football stars who didn't make it to the NFL, according to ESPN.

Held in San Jose, Calif. at Avaya Stadium, creator Jeff Lewis sees the trial game as a soft launch of the American Flag Football League. The game will be a full 60 minutes on a 100-yard football field and will be played with seven players on each team, according to ESPN.

Recently retired NFL running back Justin Forsett will join Vick in the trial game.

Tickets are available for the game on June 27. The game will be streamed later in the day, according to ESPN.
