The first Czech American Football Association (CAAF) season was in 1994, not long after independence from the Soviets. Four teams entered: Prague Panthers, Brno Alligators, Prague Lions and Ostrava Cobras. Prague Panthers finished the season 6-0 claiming the CAAF Championship. In 1995 Ostrava Cobras were replaced by Ostrava Eagles, otherwise it was the same four teams with Prague Panthers again emerging victorious in the Czech Bowl by a score of 52-22 over Prague Lions. In 1996 there was yet another team in Ostrava, the Steelers, and this time they got the mix right going all the way to Czech Bowl III where they were defeated by the Prague Panthers, who won their third Championship in as many years 48-30. The league nearly doubled in size that year with the addition of Pribram Rams, Havirov Vikings and Pilsen Bulldogs, all of whom failed to make the playoffs. The Vikings were replaced in 1997 by the Havirov Devils and the Pilsen team folded, replaced in the league by Bratislava Monarchs from Slovakia. The league was divided into East (Vychod) and West (Zapad) Divisions. Ostrava Steelers went one better that year triumphing 35-21 against Prague Panthers in Czech Bowl IV.

There was a new team back in Pilsen, the Tornadoes in 1998, replacing Pribram Rams, and the Prague Lions became the third team to win the Czech Bowl after shocking Ostrava Steelers in the Semi-Finals and then Prague Panthers 29-8 in Czech Bowl V. In 1999 Pribram Rams returned bringing the CAAF league up to 8 teams. Prague Panthers won back the Czech Bowl, 38-0 over Prague Lions. With some big mismatches (Lions defeating Rams 101-0 and Tornadoes 56-0; Monarchs defeating Tornadoes 59-0 and Rams 82-0; Alligators winning 66-0 against Tornadoes) and the resulting forfeits by the Rams and Havirov Devils towards the end of the season the league was split into Divisions A and B respectively for the stronger and weaker teams in 2000.
