The April 30/May 1st weekend will see the relaunch of the Scandinavian Cup tournament featuring seven teams from the three Scandinavian countries.

Three teams each from Sweden and Norway respectively and one team from Denmark will face each other in the 2022 Scandinavian Cup set to kick off April 30.

The tournament, originally held in the mid 1990s, will have two groups, one with three teams and the other with four. The competing teams in each group will face each other in a round robin format and the group winners will square off in the championship final.

Group A will consist of Denmark’s Aalborg 89ers, 2021 Danish semifinalists along with the Kristiansand Gladiators, 2021 Norwegian finalists and the Tyresö Royal Crowns from Sweden. The four teams in Group B include the Stockholm Mean Machines and Carlstad Crusaders from Sweden and defending Norwegian champions, the Oslo Vikings as well as the Eidsvoll 1814s, also from Norway.

The Scandinavian Cup kicks off April 30 and May 1 with three games and continues every other weekend through May 28. The winners of the two groups will meet in the final on June 18.
