European Championship for National Teams (Seniors)

Category: - published 2005-10-19 by

Dear friends,

The EC 2003-2005 European championships Series had been a great success for EFAF and all national federations involved. We had a record number of teams participating and three tournaments at Copenhagen, Amiens and Malmoe with thousands of spectators.

As the old series are over now we have to plan the new ones.

Here are some details for the EC 2007-2009 Championships Series:

1. Group Setting:

New group setting for the EC 2007-2009 Championship Series based on the results of the EC 2002-2005 Championship Series are:

A-Group in 2009:

Great Britain
Winner B-Group 2008

B-Group in 2008:

Czech Republic
Winner C-Group 2007

C-Group in 2007


2. Entry fees

Basic entry fee for all groups: 1.000 EUR (to be paid by December 1, 2005)

Additional Entry fee for Final Tournaments:

C-Group: 0
B-Group: 500
A-Group: 1000

There will be a cash deposit as guarantuee for all groups. The exact ammount of the deposit will be fixed in the tournament regulations. Maximum deposit will be 5.000 EUR for A-Group.

3. Entry deadline:

Entry deadline for all tournaments: December 1, 2005

4. Application process for hosts:

Each application consists of two phases:

Phase 1: Letter of Intent

Each interested federation has to send a letter in which the federation has to declare that the federation is interested to host and organize the tournament. The letter of intend does not have to include any other content besides this. EFAF just needs the information which federation is interested to. Only federations which submit a letter of intent will be considered as potential hosts and will be part of the further application process.

Phase 2: Application

An application file has to contain the following information:

1. application letter
2. hosting city
3. stadium venue
4. accommodation
5. transportation
6. media coverage
7. budget
8. stadium plan
9. financial bid (what the federation is willing to allocate to EFAF and the participants)

Once a federation has submitted an application it is still possible to make changes of the application.

EFAF will evaluate the bid and most probably send an evaluation committee to the venue before the decision is taken.

EFAF will send each potential host a contract draft which the federation has to sign before the final decision is taken.

Once the contract is signed by the applicant and all evaluations are finished EFAF Board of Directors will decided on the application.

Application deadlines:

C-Group 2007
