IFAF European Flag Football Championships: Q&A with Italy wide receiver Flavio Piccinni

Flavio Piccinni won a silver medal with Italy at The World Games last year and hopes to go one better at the IFAF European Flag Football Championships. As he prepares to compete at the continental tournament in Limerick this week, Flavio answers some questions about the event and adjusting to a new quarterback.

Games will be streamed live on the Olympic Channel and on IFAF.TV throughout the tournament being played from August 18-20 and IFAF Game Centre will be live from Friday featuring score updates.

Does the result at the World Games put pressure on you to become the best in Europe?

“Winning the Silver Medal at the World Games was an unbelievable and unforgettable experience for all of us. It was a high level tournament where almost every game was decided in the final minutes, if not on the last play. That said, Birmingham 2022 is in the books. Limerick 2023 is a whole new experience and every team will have a different skillset of players and staff. Every team will have everything to prove from day one, Italy included.
