BIG6 Game of the Week!!!



The BIG6 is the newest competition for top American Football teams on the continent where the top Austrian, German, and Swiss teams face one another. Participation is only by invitation from the European American Football Federation (EFAF). The teams are set in two groups with two games played each opponent in the group. Every team plays one game at home and one on the road. The winners of each group qualify for the prestigious Eurobowl XXVIII held on July 19th.

The teams participating in Group A are the two finalists of the German Football League (GFL) in 2013 (Dresden Monarchs and New Yorker Braunschweig Lions) and the reigning Austrian Champion and Eurobowl Champion (Raiffeisen Vienna Vikings).

The teams participating in Group B are the runners-up of Austrian Bowl and Eurobowl 2014 (Swarco Tirol Raiders), the Swiss champion (Calanda Broncos) and one of the big historic teams of the German Football League (Berlin Adler). 


On Saturday at 8 p.m. CET, 2 p.m. EST, the Swarco Tirol Raiders will host the Berlin Adler at Tivoli Stadium in Innsbruck. As usual, the game will be broadcasted live on

Both teams have defeated the Calanda Broncos in their first games, so the day’s mission is simple: The winner goes to the Eurobowl! The Raiders and Adler are no stranger to one another. Before taking the job in Innsbruck, Shuan Fatah was the head coach of the Adler, leading them to their first ever Eurobowl title in 2010. A season later, both teams met in Eurobowl finale  and the Raiders won 27-12. Also, superstar ex-NFL DB/RB #5, Talib Wise, played many years for coach Fatah in Berlin and Tirol, before heading back this season to the Adler.
