Crewe Railroaders will join the British American Football League this year
with the BAFL culminating each year with the BritBowl which was won last
year by the London Blitz at the Crystal Palace National Sports Centre.

The current stadium at the Crystal Palace Sports Centre is on the same ground
as the old football ground that hosted FA Cup Finals between 1895 and 1914
with Burnley the last team to win the cup at the venue, beating Liverpool in
the final in 1914.

In Burnley’s history, they have only once made it to the European Cup (now
Champions League) when they lost in the quarter finals in the 1960-1961
season to Hamburg

Hamburg’s last European game against an English team was in the 2009-2010
Europa League semi final where they lost to Fulham having beat Standard
Liege, Anderlecht and Dutch side PSV Eindhoven in the knockout rounds.

Eindhoven had hosted the 2008 European Aquatics Championships a year
earlier where Tom Daley became the youngest ever European Champion in
the diving events a few months before he competed for Great Britain at the
2008 Olympics in Beijing at 14 years old.

Another athlete to make a big impression in the Olympics at 14 year old
was Romanian gymnast Nadia Comaneci [ko-mo-neech] who won three
gold medals at the 1976 Olympics in Montreal as well as becoming the first
gymnast to be awarded a perfect 10 score in an Olympic gymnastics event.
