LIVESTREAM: IFAF Europe Qualifying Tournament – Czech Republic Battles Holland

The second round of games in IFAF Europe’s Qualifying tournaments takes place this weekend as the Czech Republic will play Holland at Sixways Stadium in Worcester, Great Britain.

The first round of games held two weeks ago saw Italy defeat both Israel and Serbia to move on to the 2017 qualifier against either Sweden or Denmark.

This weekend, four nations – Czech Republic, Holland, Great Britain and Russia – will decide the other team to face one of the two Scandinavian teams next year. The first game pits the Czech Republic and Holland and the second game features the hosts, Great Britain playing Russia.


The Czech Republic and Holland faced each other two years ago in a hard-fought battle in Prague with the Czechs winning 12-6.

The Czechs advanced to this tournament last year by downing Team Poland 14-7 in Pardubice in the Czech Republic. The game was close and Poland had a chance to tie it in the dying seconds, but a touchdown was called back on a bobbled ball and the Czechs took home the win.

Holland advanced to this qualifying tournament after downing Belgium 17-3 in Waalwijk, Holland a year ago. 

Czech Republic v. Netherlands: Friday, September 16, 3:45p CET (9:45a EDT)
