EFAF is followed by IFAF Europe
Innsbruck and Berlin to host EFL Semifinals
The EFAF Board of Directors has awarded the Tyrolean Raiders and Berlin Adler to host the two semifinals of European Football League (EFL).
Tyrolean Raiders will play rival Vienna Vikings. Berlin Adler will host Graz Giants.
Home field advantage in the semifinals and finals of both EFL and EFAF Cup is awarded in a bidding process amongst the competing teams. The process was standardized by EFAF in 2009 and enables clubs to formally apply, if they wish to host one of these games. The EFAF Board of Directors after evaluation of all applications decides based on financial, strategic and quality aspects. The goal is to showcase the top European games to a broad public, thus past attendance figures or possible TV coverage are amongst the most important in the mix of criteria that leads to the decision.
