Recap

Aarhus Tigers dominated the 2000 DAFF Danish National League in American Football, winning all four games they played during the regular season. Roskilde Kings finished 3-2 and Copenhagen Towers, on their return to the league from playing in Europe, finished 3-3. All three teams made the playoffs, as did the Herlev Rebels, who found life tough in the four team Nationalligaen after going 2-4 during the 7 team 1999 season. The Rebels lost all five games they played (two games between Aarhus Tigers versus Herlev Rebels and Roskilde Kings were not played due to the Tigers competing in Europe), and failed to score a single point.

In the Playoffs Aarhus Tigers swept aside Herlev 50-0 before also scoring almost 50 points against Roskilde Kings in Mermaid Bowl XII. Roskilde Kings had defeated Copenhagen Towers 20-7 in the other Semifinale before coming under the power of Aarhus Tigers in the Bowl, Aarhus champions on a scoreline of 49-6. It was Aarhus Tigers third Mermaid Bowl triumph in a row and fourth overall (their first had been in 1991.

About DAFF Danish National League 2000

The Danish National League (American Football) was reduced from 7 teams in 1999 to 4 in 2000. The Copenhagen Towers returned to the league after playing a Europe-only schedule in 1999, replacing the Kronborg Knights who had folded after losing their third Mermaid Bowl in a row. Odense Swans, Esbjerg Hurricanes and Vejle Saints were all relegated to the 1. Division for 2000.

After the 2000 season the Danish National League (Dansk Nationalligaen) was increased to six teams with the promotion of Fredericksund Oaks and Greve Monarchs for the 2001 season.
