LIVESTREAM: Iceland – Tyresö Royal Crowns (Sweden) @Reykjavík Einherjar, Nov. 3, 4p (3p CEST, 10a ET)

The Reykjavik Einherjar from Iceland take on Sweden’s Tyresö Royal Crowns Saturday, November 3 at Akraneshöllin stadium in in Akranes, Iceland.

This is the second game in a week for the Einherjar. A week ago they disposed of the Cologne Falcons from Germany’s third division, 50-0.

The  Einherjar’s reputation has been growing steadily over the past three years, making  it a little easier to find games. Nevertheless, they continue to search and they are still  the only football team in Iceland.  And being an island nation with a population of only 300,000, located 1,200 miles north of London, England, Iceland is still as remote as it gets in terms of American football. So the Einherjar spend most of the year practicing, while they troll the international American football community for games.

This has not deterred the only team from Iceland though. In the past two years the team has hosted teams from Sweden, Austria, Norway, Germany and Great Britain, winning five games and losing three.  They lost to the Carinthian Lions from Austria earlier this year in a tight game, 19-14. They traveled to Mallorca in late October last year to play the Spanish first division team the Mallorca Voltors. Reykjavík won the game, 21-14.

The Tyresö Royal Crowns went undefeated in Sweden’s Division 1 in 2018 with a 5-0 record. As recently as in 2016 was a powerhouse in Sweden’s top league – the Swedish Superserien. The club has undergone a rebuilding phase and is now laying the groundwork for a return to prominence in Sweden.
