LIVESTREAM IFAF U19 EC: Team Switzerland @ Team Czech Republic, April 9, 12:00 CET (12 noon, 6 am EDT) (Technical issues with livestream)

The historic capital city of Prague plays host when Czechia meets Switzerland at the Ragby Sparta Stadion in a battle of promising U19 programs.

Home team head coach Jan Štiegler will count on quarterbacks Jakub Yamato and Matyáš Bílý to lead an offense with a large and physical offensive line.

On, defense linebacker Ondřej Kyloušek is one to watch as he’s one of several Prague Black Panthers players on this squad looking to play well in front of a ruckus home crowd.

Last year, the Czech under-19 team presented itself on the international stage for the first time in more than 10 years, finishing in 10th place, losing first to powerhouse Germany and then defeating Switzerland 27:23.

Switzerland, led by head coach Dennis Oppermann, looks to avenge last year’s close loss and win on the road today. The Swiss have a potential star in running back Lennox Gautschi of the Zurich Renegades. Quarterback Dean-Lenny Sadikovic Cota hopes to get the Swiss passing game going as well against a physical Czech defense.
