Switzerland’s Calanda Broncos from the tiny mountain region of Rhaetia and Austria’s SWARCO Raiders Tirol from Innsbruck met in the Central European Football League Final in 2019 with Raiders Tirol winning by a narrow 46-42 margin in the Alpen rivalry with their Swiss neighbours.

Drawn in separate Eastern and Western Conferences, the Raiders and Broncos had won all of their Conference games, although Broncos had a scare against Serbia’s Kragujevac Wild Boars in the last regular season week, only winning 37-33. Raiders made easier work of it defeating both France’s Thonon Black Panthers and Italy’s Milan Seamen by at least four touchdowns each.

Hoping to capitalise on Broncos’ potential slip-up were Wroclaw Panthers of Poland who had defeated the Wild Boars 70-13 and Istanbul Koc Rams 55-7 before their explosive defence was shut down effectively against Calanda, scoring only three points.

The Central European Football League was a AA (3rd Level) European American Football League which operated from 2006 to the present (at time of writing) with the first 11 years as a AAA League based in the Balkans and Central European countries which formed the Soviet Block, Ottoman Empire and Austro-Hungarian Empire of the 20th Century, due to there being not enough teams in each country for their own league prior to 2017. Since 2017 it has operated as a AA Regional Mini-League in Central Europe, stretching from Moscow in Russia in the East, Istanbul in Turkey in the South, Thonon in South-East France in the West and Wroclaw in Poland in the North.
