IFAF European Championships: Denmark 2023 Roster

Fans of tackle football across the European continent will be treated to a wealth of top-class action during the weekend of August 5-6 when the 2023 IFAF European Championships continue in seven countries.

The Danish men’s national team football will play against Serbia on Saturday 5 August at 16.00 at Gentofte Stadium. The winner of that game will face either France or Great Britain in the European Championships fifth-place game in October.

With that being said lets take a look at the Danish team’s roster for Saturday’s matchup.

Offensively, the Denmark brings back veteran offensive lineman Benjamin Qvist and receiver Thomas Zinck Thellufsen. One new face too the offense is young quarterback Christopher Bay Carstens of the Aarhus Tigers, who hopes to lead his team to victory Saturday.

On defense, veteran pass rusher Mads Marquard Nielsen and linebacker Mathias Eliasen, both of the Copenhagen Towers, will look to shut down a physical Team Serbia and earn shot at fifth place come this fall.
