The Fehérvár Enthroners’ debut in the number one league was not so memorable. The six time champion Budapest Wolves easily won at the First Field. In addition, a lot of key defensive players suffered injuries: Ryan Seaberg is out for the whole season, Máté Gyarmati has to miss the game as well, while János Zilai is also questionable because of a concussion. The offense is dealing with injury issues as well. The Enthroners will have a very difficult first encounter with the Tigers.
