CEFL Cup returns!

The Central European Football League Cup is returning after a three-year absence due to the pandemic.

The last time the CEFL Cup tournament was played was 2019 when the Moscow Spartans defeated Italy’s Bolzano Giants to win the title.

The tournament was scheduled to be played in 2020 but was halted.

This season, six teams, including five new ones, will battle it out in two separate conferences, Northern and Southern. All six are among the top four in each of their respective leagues.

The tournament will be played in a round robin format:

Northern Conference
– Tychy Falcons, Polish finalists
– Vysočina Gladiators, Czech champions
– Prague Lions, Czech finalists

Southern Conference
– Fehervar Enthroners, Hungarian finalists
– Banat Bulls, Serbian finalists
– Kragujevac Wild Boars, Serbian semifinalists

During the regular season, each team will play two games and only against the teams from their own conference, one home and one away.

The matchups will take place on the following dates:

Northern Conference matchups
April 23: Prague Lions – Tychy Falcons
