Euro Cup wait nearly over!
Its only 3 more sleeps until the Euro Cup kicks off again for another year. This year’s installment is taking place in sunny Lisbon, Portugal and is being contested by 15 men’s and 7 women’s teams.
The 1-day tournament is being played at the National Stadium Jamor with three fields in action throughout the day. The 9-a-side format will have teams jostle for top spot in their respective pools in the morning before battling it out in the finals during the afternoon.
Stay tuned on the AFL Europe website and social media for a full tournament preview later in the week.
