The EFAF Board of Directors has awarded Les Black Panthers de Thonon les Bains and London Blitz to host the two semifinals of EFAF Cup.

Les Black Panthers de Thonon les Bains will play Kragujevac Wild Boars on May 28th, Kickoff 6pm, while London Blitz will face Søllerød K.Noah Gold Diggers.

The semifinal at London is subject of a re-scheduling to avoid conflict with soccer; UEFA Champions League Final in London on Saturday May 28th. London Blitz will host Gold Diggers in London one weekend later, probably on Saturday June 4th, Kickoff still tbd.

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.
