The Crusaders have been in the top league since its inception six years ago. They are a tough and physical team that plays hard-nosed football. They are coached by Grant Shields and are led on the field by two-time MVP Juzz Tiny. Other players well known around the league include American wide receiver Tanner Head, quarterback António Pedro and one of the most underrated players in the league two-way lineman Veríssimo Mota.

In the past three years, the Crusaders have fallen short of the championship game and this year will be a ‘make or break’ year for this team that is in the line of succession for the Navigators. This pre-season the Crusaders defeated the Porto Mutts 20-6. This was a major triumph for this team entering the LPFA VI season.
