SWARCO Raiders from Innsbruck in Austria won the 12th CEFL Bowl for the Central European Football League Championship in 2017 defeating Serbia’s Kragujevac Wild Boars 55-20 in the showpiece game. They had earlier defeated Panthers Wroclaw of Poland and Denmark’s Triangle Razorbacks in the 2-game Mini-League Western Conference Regular Season, while the Wild Boars had finished ahead of SBB Vukovi Beograd, also of Serbia, in the Eastern Conference after disposing of both Koc Rams of Turkey and Budapest Cowbells (Hungary) in the Regular Season.

The Central European Football League Championship 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 Denmark in the North.
