Prague announced as new European League of Football franchise

The European League of Football (ELF) has announced a new franchise for the 2023 season in Prague, Czech Republic.

The announcement of the new Prague franchise comes in tandem with a Paris team and follows the addition of four other teams earlier this year – the Helvetic Guards, Munich Ravens, Milano Seamen and Fehérvár Enthroners.

Commissioner Patrick Esume commented on the new arrival to the ELF:

We have emphasized from the outset that we see ourselves as a European league and have worked hard to back up words with actions. After Germany, Spain and Poland, Austria and Turkey joined in the second year. In the third year, Italy, Switzerland, Hungary, France and the Czech Republic will join. We had actually planned for 16 teams, but the interest in joining the European League of Football is huge. The iron is hot, so we’re forging it.

This will bring the total count to 18 teams on the way to commissioner Esume’s goal of 24.
