Spain

As mentioned last week, Spain will crown a new champion in 2014 as defending champion the L’Hospitalet Pioners were defeated in semifinal play by the Badalona Dracs 38-20. It will be the first time in five years that the Pioners will not be defending their title. In the other semi-final the Valencia Firebats downed Osos Rivas from Madrid 22-12. Valencia and Badalona will face each other for the championship – The LNFA Bowl – on June 15.
