Team Denmark announces roster for 2018 IFAF European Championships

Team Denmark’s head coach Lars Carlsen has announced his roster for the 2018 IFAF European Championships that get underway Sunday, July 29, in Vantaa, Finland.

This is only the second time in their history that the Danish national team has participated in the European Championships top competition. They first competed against the top teams in Europe in the 2014 European Championship held in Austria.  In that tournament, Denmark finished sixth after dropping both their group games against Austria and France by lopsided scores. They rebounded against Sweden, pushing them in the second half but eventually succumbing 24-17.

The last time Team Denmark took the field was against the Polish national team in 2016. In that game, Denmark came away with a 37-35 win, but also had a chance to evaluate players.

Denmark opens the tournament on Sunday, July 29 against Austria. They then take on Team Sweden on Tuesday, July 31. The medal round games and game for fifth place are scheduled for Saturday, August 4.
