Finals – Saturday, August 25, 2012, 7:30pm
(3) Pune vs (4) Delhi – Pune won 6-0
The finals of the first EFLI season in Sri Lanka are here! Also, Ten Sports has acquired global broadcast rights for the EFLI until 2016, showing about 370 games over the next five years. Each year consists of two seasons commencing in July and November respectively. Ten Sports will start showing the games on television starting in September (I mentioned in a previous post that it is probably a tape delay of the season that is wrapping up right now).
Also, check out this article from The Island newspaper. Great insight on the first season of the EFLI, especially from some of the star players of the league. Congratulations to Roshan Lobo, running back of the Bangalore Warhawks, for winning the 2012 EFLI MVP. Can’t wait to finally see these games in September!
