BIG6 European Football League plays 2018 as EUROBOWL tournament in a challenger format

The cards in the fight for the EUROBOWL, the highest sports award for club teams, will be reshuffled in 2018.

The BIG6 European Football League plays the EUROBOWL tournament in a challenger format in the next season: two challengers compete with the last two finalists of the last EUROBOWL.

One of the outstanding teams in the tournament, of course, are the New Yorker Lions from Braunschweig, which are the current level of all things in European football. The North Germans won the EUROBOWL three times in a row. As the second finalist of the past year, the Samsung Frankfurt Universe has also announced for the competition. The Hessians crowned their meteoric rise in the recent years by winning the EFL Bowl 2016 and the participation in this year's EUROBOWL, where they lost versus the Lions in front of 7,500 spectators at the Volksbank Stadium in their home country.

The two challengers are also in the circle of the top European teams. The Dutch series champion Amsterdam Crusaders, participant in the BIG6 2017, was in the final of the EFL Bowl against the Samsung Frankfurt Universe in 2016 and can take revenge for the defeat in the next tournament. The competition is completed by Flash La Courneuve from Paris. The French top team, which was already in a EUROBOWL final some years ago, is peppered with local internationals who won the gold medal at the World Games under head coach Patrick Esume in the final against the German team.

As in previous years, each participating team has a home and an away game. The two challengers compete against the two EUROBOWL participants of the previous year who do not meet in the preliminary round.

For enough excitement and top football in 2018 is clearly taken care of!
The EUROBOWL tournament in challenger format begins on April 14th with the encounters Flash La Courneuve vs. New York Lions and Amsterdam Crusaders vs. Samsung Frankfurt Universe. The second game day will take place on April 28th when the New Yorker Lions meet the Amsterdam Crusaders. On the same day the Samsung Frankfurt Universe hosts Flash La Courneuve. The tournament ends on the weekend of 9/10th of June with the EUROBOWL XXXII.
