Schedule Update

It looks like the official website has been updated recently with a new PDF schedule. The schedule has the first games starting on July 15, 2012 and the last game, the EFLI Champions Game, on August 26, 2012.

If this is correct, then it looks like the EFLI moved the season up from beginning in November to beginning in July. But the PDF document is titled “EFLI 2012 MATCH SCHEDULE SRI LANKA”, so maybe it’s just sort of a pre-season tournament that is taking place in Sri Lanka before the actual season in November.

Notice that the Lions are called the Sri Lanka Lions (instead of Colombo) and the Wolfpak are called the Pakistan Wolf Pak (instead of Peshawar). Looks like these are some additional name changes that will establish a national identity for these two teams (Sri Lanka has an another team in the Kandy Skykings, which was relocated from Hyderabad in India).

So it looks like there’s still a lot of fluidity in the EFLI. But if the new PDF schedule is correct, we can start seeing some games already in July instead of the originally scheduled November.

    • No problem, and thank you for the linkage as well. That is good news, and looks like we’ll be seeing some American football being played in India earlier than we thought!
