Upcoming game:

Great Britain vs Finland. 1900, 17 August.

The IFAF Women’s European Championships get underway on 12 August, featuring the four of the top women’s National Programmes in Europe: Finland, Sweden, Austria and hosts, Great Britain.

The event will feature a round-robin tournament, with each outfit squaring off against one another once. This means each team will play three games across the course of just six days, with the most successful team raising the second-ever IFAF Women’s European title!

Will Finland defend the title they earned in convincing fashion in the inaugural championship, hosted in Granada, Spain, in 2015?

Or will hosts, the Great British Lions build upon their success with a fourth-place finish at the 2017 Women’s World Championship to lift their first international title?

Finally, both Austria and Sweden enter the fray as long-established contenders, hungry to shake things up this summer!

Pre-Purchase tickets are no longer available, but you can purchase entry on game day itself.

Entry £5.00 | Under 12’s £3.00. Cash only.
