As the start of the season is upon us it is high time to announce the game schedule of the Baltic Sea League 2016! So here’s how it works – the four teams are aligned in two groups each consisting of two teams. Group 1 – Kotka Eagles and Riga Lions, Group 2 – Poznan Kozly and Minsk Zubrs. In the finals the teams loosing each of the two groups will compete for the 3rd place and the teams winning each of the two groups will compete for the champion title! This will be a short but entertaining season for sure!
Let us remind you that this is the second Baltic Sea League season and this year is special with the fact that there will be 4 participant teams from 4 different countries – Finland, Latvia, Poland and Belarus. Last season Latvia and Belarus were already represented in the League, but this year we are proud to see teams from such football power countries as Poland and Finland involved in the Baltic Sea League!
On September 10 the Baltic Sea League season opening game between KOTKA EAGLES (Finnish 3rd Division champions) and RIGA LIONS (the reigning Baltic Sea League champions) will take place in Puistola Stadium in Kotka, Finland! This is the first time ever when a Latvian American football team will play a game in Finland as well as this is the first time in football history when a Finnish team faces Latvian opponents! Stay tuned for live stream details!
This is going to be a legendary football weekend because right after the season opening game the POZNAN KOZLY vs MINSK ZUBRS game awaits you on September 11! With this game the Baltic Sea League is breaking new ground as the game will take place in Poland!
