European League of Football Reveals 2021 Schedule and Divisions

With XFL on the sidelines for 2021 and the CFL possibly delaying the start of their season, there’s another option out there. The European League of Football agreed to terms with the National Football League that would allow them to incorporate some of the iconic NFL Europe identities.

The ELF season is fast approaching and many were wondering when the season would actually start and how the teams would be split up. You ask and you shall receive. Earlier today the ELF posted the official divisions for its first season. The leagues North Division will home the Hamburg Sea Devils, Berlin Thunder, Wroclaw Panthers and Leipzig Kings. The South Division is comprised of the Frankfurt Galaxy, Cologne Centurions, Stuttgart Surge and Barcelona Dragons.

The league also revealed it’s full 2021 season schedule, which is slated to kickoff June 19th with the Barcelona Dragons taking on the Stuttgart Surge, and set to wrap up September 5th.

Following its inaugural 2021 season, SEH plans to expand the ELF by inviting teams from other nations, eventually leading to 20 teams competing from ten countries.

SEH Sports & Entertainment Holding, which was set up by Zeljko Karajica, is looking to launch the new eight-team competition next June. Karajica has been named chief executive of the league. He will be joined by former football player and current coach Patrick Esume in running the competition.

The ELF will use National Football League (NFL) rules. Most European football leagues follow National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) rules to reflect their amateur status.

  1. Wow, I had no idea that this was even being considered! Coincidentally, in the past year I have been buying t-shirts of many of the old NFL Europe teams, and watching YouTube videos of some of the old games. If this new league is going to be televised here in the U.S.A. I will definitely be watching!!
