Craigavon Cowboys Flag Team off to Champions Bowl VIII

The Champions Bowl returns this weekend for its 8th edition. The Champions Bowl is an annual invitational continental club flag football competition contested by top-division European clubs. It is one of the most prestigious flag football tournaments in the world. The Craigavon Cowboys will represent Ireland for the 2nd year running, with the team flying out for Klosterneuburg, Austria on Friday morning. The group the Cowboys will be playing in is a very tough one, of which everyone in the group will play each other once. The draw has thrown up a rematch with the Red Lions from Switzerland, who the Cowboys lost out to in 2016. Two teams from the host nation will prove tough to beat as they have home advantage, whilst the Armadillos and Wanderers are powerhouses of flag football in their respective countries. Seven games on Sunday will be streamed live on www.sportonline.tv and on their app which is free to download! Best of luck to all competing and especially to the Craigavon Cowboys representing Flag Football Ireland.
