To all players & coaches

Recruiting in the league is done by each team on its own. There is no league wide organized combine or tryout, no draft or anything like that. Every team is eligible to sign a certain amount of overseas players every year and mostly will do so during the winter. Regular season is played from April to September, Playoffs from Mid September to Mid October (German Bowl). There is a signing deadline on June 30th, once this deadline has passed, recruiting for GFL and GFL2 is done until next winter.
