Applications to host two of the major events on the AFL Europe 2020 Calendar, Champions League and Euro Cup, are now open.
After successfully delivering the Champions League tournament for the past five years, AFL Netherlands have decided to step aside from hosting this event after delivering the 5th edition in Amsterdam this April. AFL Europe would like to congratulate AFL Netherlands on their incredible contribution to the growth and development of AFL in Europe through producing such a high quality event since it’s inception in 2015. This tournament has flourished year on year and will be handed to a new host following the 2019 edition with a record number of teams competing for the title of Champions of Europe.
The proposed event date for Champions League 2020 is Saturday, April 4th. Potential Champions League venues should be able to host up to 30 teams in attendance with at least 6 fields and ample changeroom facilities.
Applications are also open to host the 2020 edition of our annual Euro Cup tournament. This 9-a-side competition sees men’s and women’s national teams come together from all across Europe to battle it out for national glory. After a successful tournament in Cork in 2018, the 2019 Euro Cup will see our teams descend on Norrtalje, Sweden in the height of the Swedish Summer.
The proposed event dates for Euro Cup in 2020 are Saturday, 10th October or 17th October. Euro Cup venues should be able to support 25+ teams with at least 5 fields and ample changerooms.
If you have any questions regarding the application process to host either of these events, please do not hesitate to get in contact with firstname.lastname@example.org. Applications close on March 1st. We look forward to working with our 2020 hosts in the near future.
