Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns to host the Finnish champion Helsinki Roosters

The Schwäbisch Hall Unicorns, winners of two of the last three German Football League titles, and finalists this past season, will kick off the 2020 season with a game to remember when they play host to Finnish 22 time champions, the Helsinki Roosters on April 25 at Optima Sportpark in Schwäbisch Hall.

The Roosters last played a game outside the Nordic region a year ago when they defeated the Dacia Vienna Vikings 41-37 in a barn burner.

Schwäbisch Hall has not played an international game since 2016 when they lost to Austria’s Swarco Raiders 34-0.

Helsinki celebrated their 40th anniversary this year with an impeccable record boasting 22 titles over the course of those 40 years including the last eight in a row.

Unicorns head coach Jordan Neuman is a good friend of Helsinki’s coach Juha Hakala and the two have tried for years to set this up.

” “This will be a great experience for our players and an international football festival for our fans. Helsinki is one of the top teams in Europe. For me, this game is like a non-conference game in college football that will affect the European ranking. I’m sure the Roosters will take the game very seriously as well. “
