Most of the citizens of Tricity heard about Seahawks Gdynia. Multiple national champions and runner-ups are definitely the strongest American Football team in northern Poland. There is, however, a new force rising up in the area. Biale Lwy Gdansk have opened their season last Saturday playing an away match against Barbarians Koszalin.
Biale Lwy Gdansk currently compete in LFA 9 – a league of nine-man football under the trademark of American Football League. There are mainly developing teams at this level which don’t have a right amount of players to enter main competitions yet. The league consists of 13 teams playing in 4 groups. Nine-man teams from Tricity, Biale Lwy, and Seahawks B are in group B together with Barbarians.
