Following on from the exciting news last year that the reigning National Champions, the Tamworth Phoenix, would be participating in the Northern European Football League this summer, the Phoenix have shared the following provisional dates for these crucial international fixtures:
@ Copenhagen Towers
28 April 2018
Vs Carlstad Crusaders
12/13 May 2018
Vs Oslo Vikings
9/10 June 2018
Dates and kick-off times for the home fixtures against the Crusaders and Vikings are awaiting confirmation.
Tamworth Phoenix Head Coach, Jason Scott, shared the following:
“The Phoenix are extremely proud to be representing Great Britain and BAFA in the NEFL, against some of the best teams in Europe. Looking back through recent years, British club sides have always played with heart, passion and determination, and have pulled off some historical wins. Tamworth are ready to continue that legacy.
Going against the champions of Denmark, Sweden, and Norway won’t be easy, but we’re happy being the underdog. We’re in this tournament to win it – not to make up the numbers – and I know that we’re going to give a great account of ourselves, the phamily and British football.
We’d love for as many of Britball Nation to come and support the Phoenix at Pack Meadow against the Crusaders in May, and Vikings in June. It’s going to be a celebration of football, and we’re excited to be part of it”
