Week 1 – July 25, 2012
Today is the first day of the first EFLI season. I was unable to find any live streams, and it’s been fairly difficult to find updates, but I will update this post with any as soon as I discover them.
Pune Marathas Vs Delhi Defenders (EFLI Sri Lanka) 1st Day – Pune won 31-7
Kolkata Vipers Vs Kandy Sky Kings (EFLI Sri Lanka) 1st Day – Kandy won 13-0
Mumbai Gladiators Vs Colombo Lions (EFLI Sri Lanka) 1st Day – Colombo won 12-7
Judging from the photos, it looks like Pune and Kandy won their respective games (not sure of the outcome of Mumbai/Colombo from the photos, and for some reason no photos have been posted yet from the 4th game, Pakistan vs. Bangalore) (Update: ThePapare.com didn’t get photos of the game, but Bangalore won 26-6)
Update @ 7/25/12 11:35pm EDT: The official EFLI twitter has been updated with a little bit of info and some nice photos:
@ruitina65 the games will be aired on Ten Sports on a delay. Still working on info about streaming. Will keep you updated here on twitter.— EFLI (@EFLIFootball) July 26, 2012
@ThatGuyJoel the games are being aired on a delay on Ten Sports so we are holding back results until then.— EFLI (@EFLIFootball) July 26, 2012

#84 Happy getting the Delhi Defenders ready for their first EFLI game - http://t.co/oqGFXRrQ— EFLI (@EFLIFootball) July 25, 2012
From what I remember, Happy was on the Pune Marathas in the Pune vs. Mumbai scrimmage a few months ago… a blockbuster trade occurred since then, perhaps?
Update @ 7/26/12 12:30am EDT: I have updated some of the scores thanks to Facebook users who commented on ThePapare.com’s photos
Update @ 7/26/12 9:25am EDT: ThePapare.com posted an article with the scores of the games. Also it looks like the Wolfpak has officially changed its named from the Peshawar Wolfpak to the Pakistan Wolfpak.
