It is the aim of EFAF to promote American Football in Europe and offer the members opportunities to have attractive competitions. Part of that strategy is the new Challenge Cup. It is especially designed for those member federations which have been founded in the last years and those who are not able to compete in EFL or EFAF Cup due to various, for example financial or technical restrictions.
The Challenge Cup is regional competion for teams for example out of Italy, Poland, Serbia, and Hungary.
Group A of the Challenge Cup consists of the Vrbas Hunters (Serbia), the Klek Knights (Serbia), the Györ Sharks (Hungary) and the Pomorze Seahawks Gdansk (Poland). Playing in group B are the Kragujevac Wild Boars (Serbia), the Pancevo Panthers (Serbia), the Wroclaw Devils (Poland) and the Italian division 2 champions the Reggio Emilia Hogs.
It is the first time that clubs from Hungary and Serbia participate in an official EFAF tournament. Poland took that step already last year, but this year's Polish representatives are new on European level. For the Italian team Hogs it is also a premier to play in an EFAF competition.
The semi finals will be played the weekend of June 27th-28th. The final is set for the weekend of July 18th-19th.
