European Football League 1991

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In the 1991 season of the European Football League , 13 clubs took part, which played three of four final round places in the knockout system. The final round should actually be in Barcelona , for which the host was already set. After the final round was canceled and Helsinki withdrew, only the final, the Eurobowl V , remained, in which the Berlin Adlers were a German team for the first time. The Eurobowl was then hosted in Offenbach am Main, so the game for Europe's crown made its first appearance on German soil. The Amsterdam Crusaders emerged as the winners of the tournament, taking their first title in the third finals.
