Serbia Getting Set To Kick Off

The top division in Serbia kicks off the 2016 season on March 26-27 with eight teams competing for the title. Will the Novi Sad Dukes repeat their fairytale season or will one of the other seven knock them off? The championship game – the Serbian Bowl –  is scheduled for July 9-10.

Joining the top division in Serbia this year will be the Belgrade Blue Dragons who replace the Cacak Angel Warriors. The seven  other teams vying for the title include the reigning champion GAT Novi Sad Dukes, multi-title holder the SBB Vukovi Beograd as well as the Niš Imperatori, the Kragujevac Wild Boars, the Inđija Indians,  the Pančevo Panthers and the Sirmium Legionaries.

New Import rule

There is a new import rule in the Serbian league this season. The number of non-home-grown players has been reduced from 10 to six, with only four allowed to play in a game. By non-home-grown player is meant a Non-North American player who has played at least one year of American college football. This will have an impact on a few teams. Teams can still carry three import players on their rosters but only two can play in a game.
