ELF: All-Star team announced

The European League of Football has announced its first-ever All-Star team.

Coaches and fans alike voted for their favorite players helping shape the skilled team. ELF‘s all-stars feature only four American players (two on offense and two on defense) in accordance with league rules. This allows ELF’s domestic stars a chance to shine on this new stage, eager to represent themselves among the best in the new league.

This team of ELF‘s best players will hit the field together in an All-Star Game on October 3 in Berlin. Their opponent will be a collection of American talent coached by Rudy Wyland.
