EFAF is followed by IFAF Europe
EURO BOWL XXV on June 18, 2011 at Innsbruck
The EFAF Board of Directors has awarded the Tyrolean Raiders to host EURO BOWL XXV - the final game of the European Football League (EFL).
Tyrolean Raiders will meet last year´s reigning EURO BOWL champion Berlin Adler.
The game will be televised live by ORF. Kickoff is provisionary fixed for 20.30 h. The internet platform raiders.tv will provide worldwide internet tv coverage.
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.
