Calanda Broncos to host EUROBOWL XXVI!

The Swiss Champion Calanda Broncos will host and organize the European Football League Final, the EUROBOWL XXVI against the Vienna Vikings at the Stadium Rheinpark Vaduz in the capital of Liechtenstein.

Eurosport 2 will provide live coverage of the 26th Eurobowl for the first time in the competition's history.

The Rheinpark stadium in Vaduz on Liechtenstein, which is located 29km away from the Broncos hometown in Chur - a 25 minute car ride - right at the border with Switzerland is located impressively in front of the sovereign castle of Liechtenstein.

The Rheinpark stadium is an internationally-approved stadium and hosts all the international UEFA/FIFA soccer games of Liechtenstein.

The stadium has a fully seated capacity of 6,127, almost all of which are fully covered on all four sides of the stadium and has additional standing places giving it a total capacity of 7,789.

Calanda Broncos expect to bring at least 2,000 fans from Chur to Vaduz, with probably 1,000 more fans from football communities within reach and at least 1,000 spectators who have never seen a game before for an anticipated crowd of more than 5,000.

The stadium is located right at the highway A13 exit Vaduz, right next to the Rhine and is within traveling distance of Hohenems (39 km), Zurich (110 km), Innsbruck (172 km), Munich (237 km), Stuttgart and Milano (each 260 km).

EFAF President Robert Huber said: "After eight successful Eurobowls in Austria in a row we are turning a new page in the history of American Football Europe. It is the first time ever that a Swiss team participates in the Eurobowl, the EFL championship game. It is the first time that the Eurobowl has been organized by a Swiss team and also the first time that Eurosport has covered one of our EFL games at all."

"We - the whole team of the Calanda Broncos - are really proud to be trusted to organize this unique event", said Calanda Broncos President Walter Tribolet. "We are well aware of the great honor and we will deliver an high class event."
