NFL Academy set to play Bavarian All-Stars in Munich alongside International NFL Game

The NFL Academy of the UK will take on the Bavarian Warriors, a team made up of youth all star players from the Bavarian region of Germany, prior to the historic International Series game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Seattle Seahawks 

These two squads will face off as an excellent football teaser prior to the first NFL regular season game ever played in Germany.

The NFL Academy recently hosted powerhouse IMG Academy of Bradenton Florida, losing a competitive game. They also have wins over RIG Academy in Sweden, the Dusseldorf Panther of Germany, and the Scottish U19 team.

The UK’s premiere youth football program features several players with D1 scholarship offers including 4-star offensive lineman Daniel Akinkunmi, recent Jackson State commit Kofi Taylor Barrocks, and Temple commit Peter Clarke. Defensively, look for linebacker Isaak Ubaka and Jadiel Wahab to be swarming to the ball.

At quarterback, Sam Fenton should take the majority of the snaps behind center. The 6’6 pocket passer has shown off a big arm before and will look to command the NFL Academy offense against a formidable IMG defense.

The Bavarian Warriors should have good fan support in Munich as the team typically features players from the nearby established clubs such as the Munich Cowboys, Munich Rangers, Allgäu Comets, Ingolstadt Dukes, and Straubing Spiders. 

The game will take place on Saturday, November 12th, 2022, at 1 p.m. in Dante Stadium in Munich, as a fantastic additional event to the NFL Game in Munich scheduled for the following day.
