Current French champions from 2019, Thonon Black Panthers are returning to international competitions after a two-year interruption. They’ve played only 3 games in their national league in 2020, while missing 2021 completely due to corona. This season they’re standing at 4-1 after playing out the first half of their national league. Their only loss has come from the Flash de La Courneuve, who are debuting in the CEFL Championship this season.
LG OLED Las Rozas Black Demons are themselves appearing for the first time on a European scene. They are the runners-up of the Spanish national championship from 2021. Their season has started in January this year so they’ve had more time to get to speed. With one game to go in the regular season they’ve suffered 3 losses in their domestic league. Even so, they’ve already earned a spot in the national semifinals.
The Black Panthers’ offensive side of the ball will be energized by import players, signal caller Brett Hunchak and running back Akiva Wedge. Their opponents, the Black Demons are playing with a domestic quarterback and their additions from overseas are O-lineman Félix Gacusana Jr and defensive back Marcus Bratton.
Game will be broadcast live on the Black Panthers’ streaming platform www.pantherstv.tv so be sure not to miss it!
