Final European CFL Combine kicks off in Denmark

The seventh and last CFL Combine to be held in Europe kicks off today at Hafnia Hallen outside of Copenhagen, Denmark.

In cooperation with the Danish American Football Federation (DAFF), Canadian Football League scouts will assess 15 athletes attempting to join CFL rosters for the 2020 season.

A total of eight combines have been held so far as CFL director of global scouting, Greg Quick, along with CFL CFO and head of football operations Greg Dick, associate VP of football operations Ryan Janzen and Lawrence Hopper from Football Operations have crisscrossed the globe searching for players who fit the criteria.

The crew started out in Sweden and Finland and then moved on to France, Great Britain, Italy, and Germany before continuing to Japan where two combines were held — one in Tokyo and the other in Osaka.

Following the stop in Denmark, they head to Brazil on March 7 and wind up the global tour in Mexico on March 15.
