As the European League of Football charges into its final stretch, the playoff race has intensified, leaving fans on the edge of their seats. The scenarios are complex, but fear not – we’re here to break down every twist and turn of the playoff possibilities for each team in the last three weeks of the season. Let’s dive in!

The home teams for the playoffs are already fixed after this weeks games.

  • Rhein Fire (#1 seed): will have home field advantage either in the semi finals if they don’t lose to Galaxy by more than 24 points or in the wildcard round.
  • Vienna Vikings (#2 seed): will have home field advantage in the semi finals (could still advance to #1 seed if Rhein Fire loses against Frankfurt Galaxy if Vikings go 12-0).
  • Stuttgart Surge (#3 seed): clinched their conference and thereby home field advantage in the wildcard round.
  • Frankfurt Galaxy (#4 seed): will have home field advantage either in the wildcard round or in the semifinals (as #1 or #2 seed depending on the Vikings) if they manage to beat Rhein Fire by more than 24 points.

Western Conference

Frankfurt Galaxy (10-1):

Sitting at the top, the Frankfurt Galaxy have a couple of paths ahead:

Conference Winner:

  • By winning against the Rhein Fire with a margin of over 24 points they can clinch the conference title.

Concluding Sentence: After clinching the playoff spot the Galaxy’s commanding performance still has them competing for conference glory.


Rhein Fire (11-0):

The Rhein Fire’s quest for the conference title has only one last step to take:

Conference Winner:

  • If they don’t lose to the Galaxy by more than 24 points, they will claim the conference crown.

Concluding Sentence: The Rhein Fire’s way to the playoffs is already set, but they still want to prove that they are on top of the western conference.


Central Conference

Stuttgart Surge (9-2):

The Surge are charging forward as champions of the central conference with the #3 seed.


Raiders Tirol (7-4):

The Raiders are eyeing their own path to the playoffs:

Clinched playoffs if:

  • they win their last game either the Thunder or the Panthers lose their last game.

Concluding Sentence: If the Raiders win their last game they still need to keep an eye on the games played in Fehervar and Berlin.


Munich Ravens (6-5):

The Ravens are spreading their wings for a shot at the playoffs:

Clinch playoffs if:

  • Win their last game while at least two out of Raiders (+62), Thunder (+183) and Panthers (+135) end up with a record of 7-5, while the Ravens (+32) stay ahead in the Tie Breaker.

Concluding Sentence: The Munich Ravens playoff hopes are only theoretical at this stage as they would need to make up over 100 points in their last game.


Eastern Conference

Berlin Thunder (7-4):

The Thunder roars into the playoff picture with multiple scenarios:

Playoff Pathways:

  • Winning against the Sea Devils, while
    • Raiders lose their last game, or
    • if Thunder wins the Tie Breaker against one of Raiders and Panthers if both win their last games.
  • Losing against Sea Devils, if either Panthers (+135) lose versus Enthroners or Raiders (+62) lose versus Seamen and Berlin (+183) needs to clinch the Tie Breaker.

Concluding Sentence: Reaching the playoffs is still manageable for the Berlin Thunder. If they win their remaining game their first post season appearance is in hands reach.


Panthers Wroclaw (7-4):

The Panthers are determined to claw their way into the playoffs:

Playoff Possibilities:

  • The Panthers secure a spot in the playoffs by winning their last game and either Thunder loses last game or Raiders lose or remain behind in the point differential.
  • Lose against Enthroners, and:
    • Raiders lose versus Seamen and the Panthers win the Tie Breaker, or
    • Thunder lose versus Sea Devils and the Panthers win the Tie Breaker.
