LIVE STREAM & PREVIEW: GFL North – Kiel Baltic Hurricanes v. Braunschweig New Yorker Lions

[tps_title]Europe’s Top League Ready To Roll[/tps_title]

Fifteen teams start the season in Germany, all with one goal in mind – to play in German Bowl XXXVII on October 10, 2015 in Berlin’s Friedrich-Ludwig-Jahn-Sportpark stadium. The 37th GFL season kicks off Saturday April 18 with two early meetings.

The defending champion  Braunschweig New Yorker Lions open the GFL North season at home against the Kiel Baltic Hurricanes. This game wll be streamed live. Braunschweig is coming off an undefeated league season which saw them rack up 47.7 points a game while allowing only 11. They were so dominant that their victory in the German Bowl against the high-flying Schwabisch Hall Unicorns was almost a foregone conclusion.

In 2014, the Lions lost two games outside of league, one in BIG6 Europe competition to the Vienna Vikings and the other to the Berlin Adler in the Eurobowl final when they played without their starting quarterback.

On the other hand, Kiel had a tough season in 2014 as they suffered through a long list of injuries to key players and limped into the post season before getting ousted in the quarterfinals. New coach Stephen Parker is determined to aim higher in 2015.

Tune into the LIVE STREAM: Kiel Baltic Hurricanes v. Braunschweig New Yorker Lions. Kickoff 6 PM CET (12 noon EDT)
