The Championship Game 2023 of the European League will be played on September 24th in the SCHAUINSLAND-REISEN-ARENA in Duisburg.
After Düsseldorf (2021) and Klagenfurt/Austria (2022), the most important and biggest game in European football will take place in the heart of the Ruhr area.
“With this, the place to be for all teams is fixed. We are pleased that we were able to provide clarity at an early stage and have the certainty that the next final will also take place in an outstanding setting. It is a beautiful stadium and offers the right infrastructure for a great football party, which we will celebrate with the fans around the Championship Game. The games of Rhein Fire, who are at home in Duisburg, have shown how great the enthusiasm is,” said Zeljko Karajica, Managing Director of the European League of Football.
“Football of the European extra class in our arena. We will experience impressive sport in front of enthusiastic spectators in the sports city of Duisburg. I’m looking forward to it,” the Mayor of Duisburg Sören Link comments.
After the success of Frankfurt Galaxy in the premiere season and the recent triumph of the Vienna Vikings, incidentally both over the Hamburg Sea Devils, league commissioner Patrick Esume is eager to see who will make it to the final this time. “When I think about our Championship Game being played in the Schauinsland-Reisen-Arena in 2023, I already get goosebumps. And that’s how it will feel for everyone fighting for it. No matter who wins the tickets for Duisburg in the end, it’s going to be crispy. The Rhine-Ruhr region is a football stronghold in Germany and the atmosphere will be sensational,” Esume commented.
