VIDEO: 2016 IFAF U-19 World Championships Opening Ceremonies

The 2016 IFAF Under-19 World Championship wound up last weekend with Team Canada surprising everyone by beating the United States 24-6 to win the gold medal.

The seven-team tournament was held in Harbin, China,  and marked the first time that China has hosted an international American football tournament. After all the excitement of the games what has been lost in the shuffle were the very impressive opening ceremonies in the Harbin University Stadium.

Keep in mind that organizers had about six months to put the event together and also that American football is still very much a “foreign” sport in China although it is starting to gain interest.

Watch and enjoy the opening ceremonies of the 2016 IFAF Under-19 World Championship.
