Report

In 2015, the International Federation of American Football Europe (IFAFE) superseded the European Federation of American Football (EFAF) as the governing body of American Football in Europe, and the Eurobowl became a competition for the Big 6, with the European Football League becoming the second level European Club Championship, replacing the EFAF Cup (European Federation of American Football).

The competition has been dominated by the Braunshweig New Yorker Lions, from Germany, who won the Eurobowl four years in succession from 2015 to 2018, beating fellow Germans, Schwaebish Hall Unicorns in 2015, Austrian team Swarco Raiders Tirol, from Innsbruck in 2016, and Frankfurt Samsung Universe, also from Germany in 2017 and 2018.

The 2019 edition became a one-off Final between the Amsterdam Crusaders, who had played an International-only schedule in 2018, compiling a 2-6 record against some of the best teams in Europe, and the Potsdam Royals of the German Football League, after scheduling conflicts meant the top German and Austrian teams, who would normally compete in the Big 6, did not enter. The Potsdam Royals won Eurobowl XXXIII 62-12.
