Europe to Begin Four Team Professional League in 2016

While 11 European teams expressed interest in playing in the European professional league budget and logistics issues allowed only three teams to field teams for the 2016 season. The three teams are Draci Brno (Czech Republic), Munich-Haar Disciples (German) and Buchbinder-Legionare Regensburg (German).

It was hoped that a fourth team would be L&D Amsterdam (Netherlands) but negotiations for fielding a team have not been successful. L&D will be replaced by a Team Amsterdam composed of players from different leagues in Europe and the United States.

The downsized schedule is an attempt by the European League “to address grassroots issues and to fine tune the organization for future expansion.”
