LIVESTREAM: Iceland – Empire State Wolfpack @Reykjavik Einherjar, Sat. March 16, 7:30 GMT (8:30 CEST, 3:30p EDT)

The Reykjavik Einherjar from Iceland take on Empire State Wolpack Saturday, March 16 Reykjavik, Iceland to mark the first time the Icelandic team will face  a team from the United States.

The Einherjar have been on a roll winning their last four games including an emphatic win late last year when they disposed of the Cologne Falcons from Germany’s third division, 50-0.

The  Einherjar’s reputation has been growing steadily over the past three years, making  it a little easier to find games. Nevertheless, they continue to search and they are still  the only football team in Iceland.  And being an island nation with a population of only 300,000, located 1,200 miles north of London, England, Iceland is still as remote as it gets in terms of American football. So the Einherjar spend most of the year practicing, while they troll the international American football community for games.

This has not deterred the only team from Iceland though. In the past two years the team has hosted teams from Sweden, Austria, Norway, Germany and Great Britain, winning six games and losing three.  They lost to the Carinthian Lions from Austria earlier last year in a tight game, 19-14. They traveled to Mallorca in late October 2017 to play the Spanish first division team the Mallorca Voltors. Reykjavík won the game, 21-14.
