Flat Ground League FGL is a prestigious program that started as a skateboarding program and grew into something bigger. The event is meant to run simultaneously contests on African countries without well established spots to skateboarding. On her early days in 2017 the program debuted with contests in Tanzania, Angola, Mozambique and Zambia.

On April 28th 2018 the Third FGL Edition went down in Tanzania and uniquely featured HipHop Artists and Graffiti as well as BMX Contest and Roller Blade Show. The program also grabbed local attention after being joined by famous Graffiti Artist, Mejah Mbuya who is also a serving UWABA Leader and HipHop Mogul as well. In addition an amazing crowd of cheerful spectators gave power, energy and love to the contestants.

The FGL started with series of free rap battles and later we spun into BMX Qualifiers which were grouped into Brake and Brakeless and featured a total of 12 BMX Riders. They hard stomped the court and pulled amazing stunts not to be missed.
