The U.S. Federation, in coordination with the staff of the Ingolstadt Dukes, as determined the best response to the Coronavirus Pandemic is to postpone indefinitely the April 25 Friendship Bowl between our USA Eagles and the Ingolstadt Dukes.
The logistics of traveling along with the risk of exposure between the athletes and fans was simply too great. Add to this, the closures of borders, limited air travel and suspension of operations of the German Federation and German Football League, there were far too many complications towards this event.
The safety of our teams and of our supporters is our highest priority and the risk of exposure was unacceptably high.
The teams will work together at a later date to reschedule the event once we've all been able to determine how the virus will be managed.
