Copenhagen’s very own US football team, the Copenhagen Towers, has made it onto the American Football International’s (AFI) European Top 20 rankings.

The Towers were ranked 17th in the rankings – which is based on input from a panel of a number of coaches throughout Europe.

“Denmark’s Copenhagen Towers have rebounded in the Danish league and dominated following their opening game loss to the Søllerød Gold Diggers,” AFI wrote.

“They trounced the Gold Diggers two weeks ago and look poised to challenge for the Danish title again.”

Upon hearing the news, the Towers tweeted: “Top20…! We’ve entered the European Top20 at #17 in the latest AFI ranking.”

Razor-sharp challenge
The Towers were runners-up in the Mermaid Bowl (Denmark’s equivalent of the Superbowl), losing a close game 18-22 to the Triangle Razorbacks.

The Towers will go head-to-head against their nemesis, the Razorbacks, once again tomorrow at Vejle Athletics Stadium. Kickoff is at 14:00.
