Leipzig Kings Announce Home Stadium For 2022
The Leipzig Kings have announced they’ll play their 2022 home games at Bruno-Plache-Stadion in Leipzig.
The Kings will play their home opener against the Rhein Fire at their old field, Paul-Greifzu-Stadion, on June 12th, but starting in July, Leipzig will host all their home games at Bruno-Plache-Stadion. The 12,300 capacity stadium has primarily been used for soccer matches until now and is also home to the ‘1. FC Lokomotive Leipzig’ soccer club.
1. FC Lokomotive’s general manager Martin Mieth commented on sharing the space with the Kings, stating,
“We are very happy that the Leipzig Kings will be our guests this summer and that they will be playing four home games at the Bruno-Plache-Stadion.”
Kings general manager Moritz Heisler also commented on the announcement of their new home via a press release, stating,
“With moving to the Bruno-Plache-Stadion, the Kings begin a new era. A stadium with stationary floodlights, roofed seats, and a capacity of 12,300 fans is exactly our definition of a great home field.”
Helvetic Guards Unveil Logo For 2023
One of the European League of Football’s newly announced expansion teams has unveiled their logo for when they hit the field for the league’s 2023 season.
Team officials commented on the logo, stating,
“The Guard on our logo is symbolized with the Swiss flag as our Team represents the entire Swiss nation, at the same time it relates to Swiss history, through the outlined armor, helmet and halberd. For centuries, the Swiss have been known as fierce fighters and famous for their strength, loyalty and reliability. The logo of the Helvetic Guards reflects these values as well as building a bridge between the traditions of our country and the spirit of our team. Historically, Swiss soldiers and guards proved that units that may seem small, can succeed against a supreme army, by acting as a team and committing, through their will and discipline. It is this that the Helvetic Guards and our logo symbolize and stand for,”
