CAAFA Central Asian American Football Association Bishkek Challenge 2007

Recap

The Central Asian American Football Association was established by Tom Kelly in April 2002 after he approached the American University of Kyrgyzstan about setting up a team. Following a couple of Flag Football games versus KIMEP from Almaty in Kazakhstan, a team was set up in Bishkek: BARS Leopards who after playing a game amonst themselves in 2004 were able to play KIMEP from 2005 to 2008 in a series of Challenge Games following the arrival of more kit from Tom Kelly in USA.

In 2007 a second team was set up in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan: Bishkek Golden Eagles and from 2007 to Spring 2008 the two Bishkek teams also played Challenge Games between the teams. Golden Eagles won the first Challenge Game in May 2007.

By 2006 the rivalry between Kyrgyzstan and Kazakhstan was fully fledged, with two teams fully kitted out thanks to Kelly: Bishkek BARS Leopards and Almaty KIMEP Titans.

Another fixture in November 2005 finished in a 20-20 tie. The following year in 2006 games were played in both Almaty and Bishkek as the rivalry continued.

RECAP

The Central Asian American Football Association was set up in 2002 by the intrepid American with the Irish name, Tom Kelly. Having previously tried to promote American Football in the USSR in 1979, he had more success in 2002 starting teams at the American University of Kyrgyzstan (AUK) and KIMEP in Kazakhstan, two neighbouring Central Asian Republics.

Following a couple of Flag American Football games between the two teams and a few games versus Inter (International) and World teams featuring players from Turkey, Italy, Russia, USA, Canada, Afghanistan and Turkmenistan and also a game against the US Embassy in Kyrgyzstan, Tom Kelly managed to get some equipment in from America to set up two teams: Barsy Leopards, based in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, and Almaty KIMEP Titans in Kazakhstan.

In 2004, however, there was just one team: Bishkek Barsy Leopards, who played a match amongst themselves, with Leopards-1 winning out against Leopards-2 18-12. When Almaty KIMEP Titans were able to set up a team in neighbouring Kazakhstan in 2005, the two teams could play Challenge Games versus each other.

In 2007 the Challenge Series included a third game with Barsy Leopards winning all three, but again in 2008 Almaty came out on top winning three of the four Challenge Games.

By 2007 there was also a second team in Bishkek, and so began a separate series of Challenge Games in Kyrgyzstan between the new team Golden Eagles and the Barsy Leopards.

About the CAAFA

The Central Asian American Football Association was set up in 2002 by the intrepid American with the Irish name, Tom Kelly. Having previously tried to promote American Football in the USSR in 1979, he had more success in 2002 starting teams at the American University of Khyrgyzstan (AUK) and KIMEP in Kazakhstan, two neighbouring Central Asian Republics.

Following a couple of Flag American Football games between the two teams and a few games versus Inter (International) and World teams featuring players from Turkey, Italy, Russia, USA, Canada, Afghanistan and Turkmenistan and also a game against the US Embassy in Kyrgyzstan, Tom Kelly managed to get some equipment in from America to set up two teams: Barsy Leopards, based in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, and Almaty KIMEP Titans in Kazakhstan.

After four years (2005 to 2008) playing a series of games versus each other every Spring and Autumn, there emerged a third team: Bishkek Golden Eagles. With the addition of a third team in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan National University (KNU) in Autumn 2008, a three-team tournament was organised in Bishkek, between the Leopards, Golden Eagles and KNU. Played over Labour Weekend, KNU won the inaugural Bishkek (Kyrgyzstan) Tournament, with Bishkek Barsy Leopards second and Bishkek Golden Eagles third.

Report

The Russian Open Championship – League of American Football was divided into a Premier Division and Five Regional Divisions in 2016, with the addition of Minsk Litvins from Belarus in 2016. Moscow Patriots won the Final 12-7 against Moscow Spartans. With the loss of its South Division in 2017 and 6 of its teams, the Regions Cup was introduced which was won by Perm Steel Tigers from the Volga Division, who qualified for the LAF Semi-Finals with a 36-7 win over Moscow Dragons in the Regions Cup Final. Joining them in the LAF Semi-Finals were the top three teams in the Premier Division: Moscow Spartans, Moscow Patriots and St. Petersburg Griffins. Moscow Patriots won the LAF Final 24-6 over St. Petersburg Griffins. In 2018, the last year of the League of American Football, Perm Steel Tigers again won the Regions Cup, defeating Moscow United 42-6 in the Cup Final, joining the same three teams as in 2017 in the Semi-Finals. This time Moscow Spartans became one of a handful of teams other than the Big 3Teams (Moscow Patriots, Moscow Bears and St. Petersburg Griffins) to win the Final, triumphing 7-3 in a low-scoring Final with Moscow Patriots.

About Russian American Football and the League of American Football

The Federation of American Football of Russia was formed in 1992, just immediately after the the end of the USSR and Communism. After that oneseason, the League took a long break, returning in 2002. In 2016 teams were added in Kazakhstan (Astana Wolves) and Belarus (Minsk Litvins) and became a Russian Open Championship, named the League of American Football. After losing three of its division between 2016 and 2018, and 16 of its initial 26 teams, the top four broke away in 2019 to form the East European Super League (Moscow Spartans, St. Petersburg North Legion, St. Petersburg Griffins and Minsk Litvins).

Report

Donetsk Scythians defeated the Kharkov Atlantes 22-20 in the Ukraine Super Bowl VI after finishing the season with 7 wins and one tie in their eight matches. Khzarkov Atlantes were the only team to take a point off them in the entire season, finishing on 5 wins 2 losses and one tie, with both losses coming against the Scythians. Kharkov Atlantes are named after the Atlantic Ocean, which is in itself named after Atlantis, what some archeologists believe may be the Tin Mining Regions of Ireland and Cornwall, known to the ancient Greeks. It is keeping with other teams in the early years of Ukraine American Football League being named after Ancient Peoples or Cultures, namely the Donetsk Scythians. The name Atlantic Isles is also used instead of the British Isles. [Reference: 2-3].
