Report

________________________________________________________

The Atlantic Cup was the official West European Club Championship for the winners of purely amateur National Leagues in Ireland, Belgium and Netherlands. A team from Luxembourg or the winners of France’s Casque d’Argent (Silver Helmet – the third level) were the usual fourth team in the competition.

In 2017 the Dutch and Belgian Federations made the step up to European Football League level, and the competition became a single match between the Irish champions and the Romanian champions.

The Winners Record before the competition changed includes 3 wins for Ireland (UL Vikings 2010, Belfast Trojans 2013 & 2015), [2][5][7]  3 wins for Belgium (West-Vlaanderen Tribes 2009, Brussels Tigers 2014, Brussels Black Angels 2016) [1][6][8] and 2 wins for Netherlands (Lelystad Commanders 2011 & 2012) [3][4], as well as Dublin Rebels triumph in 2017.
