Russia is European C-Champion.

In a heard attack final Russia beats Italy by 43: 35. The Russian youth did win against italian experience on a high level game. It might be to early to talk about a generation change. But it is a sign and a symbol. Not only the guys around mid thirty years old Italian Quarterback Dino Bucciol did loose the final against the young team from Russia, which has its basis in the 2002 European Junior Champion Russia.

The Czech Republic could win the game for the third place against host Denmark by 45:20.

EFAF thanks the Danish Federation for a perfect organized C-Championship tournament in Copenhagen. The EC2003 was really an advertisement for American Football.
