Sports Calendar: Huddle up for gridiron glory

With the Super Bowl all but a distant memory – one that fans of the Carolina Panthers are desperate to forget – American football spectators have a long wait until the NFL kicks off again in the autumn.

Fortunately, with the National Ligaen top flight back up and running, there is an alternative to alleviating one’s gridiron withdrawal syndrome.

Spoilt for choice
Fans can catch a rematch of last year’s Mermaid Bowl (Denmark’s Super Bowl) on Saturday when the champions Triangle Razorbacks travel to take on the Søllerød Gold Diggers just north of Copenhagen at 14:00.

Or take advantage of the holiday on Monday at 14:00 to see a Copenhagen derby when the Herlev Rebels host the Copenhagen Towers, the winners of the Mermaid Bowl in 2014 and 2013.

The games won’t exude the same super-star factor and razzmatazz of the NFL, but hey, beggars can’t be choosers. Living in Denmark, this is as good as it gets. (CW)
