Hi Gordon,
I will photograph a 400 players football league on September, I'm in Florida, picture time arround 5:00 to 8:00pm out doors, individual and team photos.
I use canon camera, my question is: which lens I should use?
24-70mm f/2.8 L or EF 35mm f1.4L or you suggest another one.
Second question, what kind of flash is better, a speedlite 580 EXII or White lighthing x series x 3200, I do not want a hot flash in middle of the photo shoot. THANK YOU Gordon I really need your help.

I would probably use the 24-70. I am guessing it is not dark between 5 and 8pm in Florida now so you shouldn't need that really wide aperture. The 24-70 will allow you to get really wide shots for group photos and you can use 70mm to get a really shallow depth of field for individual shots.

If it is too dark for 2.8 you should definitely use the 35mm. Take both with you. Just out of interest what other lenses do you have and what camera are you going to use? Something like the 85mm 1.8 would be perfect for individual portraits.

Camera: Canon 550D with battery grip
Lenses: Canon 24-105mm f/4L, Canon 50mm f1.4, Canon 18-55mm, Tamron 70-300mm,
Accessories: Manfrotto 055XPROB with 808RC4 head, Canon 430ex II speedlite, Lowepro Nova 180AW and Lowepro Pro Runner 450AW

Agree with James.

Individual photos the 70mm is going to be sweet, and for teams the wider end more useful
