PR: 13,000 Tickets Already Sold for Hamburg Sea Devils and Frankfurt Galaxy Championship Game of the European League of Football

The dice have been cast, the two participants in the first championship game in the history of the European League of Football have been determined: In the north, the Hamburg Sea Devils prevailed in the playoffs against the Panthers Wroclaw, in the south, Frankfurt Galaxy defeated the Cologne Centurions. This means that the final on September 26th in the MERKUR SPIEL-Arena will be the new edition of the last World Bowl of the NFL Europe in 2007. More than 13,000 tickets have already been sold.

“We look back on a great premiere season and we are all looking forward to the climax. With Hamburg and Frankfurt, the teams that were able to bring their quality to the field most consistently prevailed. The game is completely open, anything can happen. But the fact is that we are celebrating a huge football festival and the fans will get their money’s worth.”

Commissioner Patrick Esume

How great the euphoria about the new continental league is has become clear in the past few weeks: 13,000 fans have already secured their tickets in advance sales, although it was not yet clear which teams would make it to the final. Esume expects a run on the tickets: “Frankfurt and Hamburg are cities with a great football tradition. I firmly assume that many fans will come to Düsseldorf to support their team. “

Just like the Commissioner, Zeljko Karajica, Managing Director of the European League of Football, is looking forward to the end of the first season:

“Football is not only a high-class sport but also entertainment for the whole family. The championship game is the focus, but we will offer visitors an attractive supporting program with various acts. The pre-game show will start three hours before the kick-off and there will be a halftime show.”

While the Hamburg Sea Devils and Frankfurt Galaxy are preparing for the showdown, those responsible have long been working on further development:

“The league is definitely growing. Commissioner Esume and I have had many conversations over the past few months. We firmly assume that at least twelve franchises will compete in 2022 and that the European League of Football will have a location in other nations in addition to Germany, Spain and Poland. We will announce more details soon.”
