PREVIEW: Serbia’s American Football League (SAAF) Kicks Off 2015

[tps_title]2015 Serbian Preview[/tps_title]

The Serbian Srpska Asocijacija Američkog Fudbala (SAAF) top league kicks off its 2015 season this weekend!

The biggest difference this year will be a new name for the league. The former Serbian Superleague will now become the Serbian First Division. Full schedule and standings can be found here.

The league format will remain unchanged. Eight teams will play against each other in seven rounds, and with  Belgrade Vukovi as the defending champions, they will have a target on their backs.  They will be hard pressed though to repeat last season’s success when they won the Serbian Bowl, the CEFL Bowl and made the finals of the IFAF Europe Champions League.

The league kicks off March 28 when Vukovi starts their defense of the title against the Sirmium Legionaries, the first team founded in Serbia. The playoffs are scheduled for June 21, and this year’s Serbian Bowl is scheduled for July 4.

Four teams have  won the Serbian Bowl since its inception. It seems as if both the Kragujevac Wild Boars, former EFAF Cup finalist (2011), and Novi Sad GAT Dukes have done a great job recruiting in the off season and intend to challenge Vukovi for the crown.

Football fans in Serbia are ready and they can’t wait for the season kick off.
