June 8, 2018 – Category : Competitions – BELGIAN BOWL

The organisation of Belgian Bowl XXXI has been taken on by the Limburg Shotguns for the second time. They are in full preparation to make this a great day, not only for the players and teams playing in it, but for the entire American Football community in Belgium. The Mijnstadion in Beringen has a total capacity of over 5000 people and is sometimes used by the U19 Red Devils National Soccer Team. The day will be filled with an all-american atmosphere with food, cars, cheerleaders and live-acts. Closing of with an outdoor afterparty with some great artists! Expect the best urban & vocal house beats!

The Limburg shotguns offer the BAFL team an special opportunity for the event.

Regular tickets will be available online for 15 euro, but for the Belgian Teams we want to do something special!

All the teams that are willing to sell tickets will receive 25 or 50 tickets, they can choose.

The Teams will have the choice to sell the tickets cheaper or keep the profit for the Team:

For teams that will sell 25 tickets, we make an invoice of 300 euro. Which means that you can earn 75 euro.

For teams that will sell 50 tickets, we make an invoice of 500 euro. Which means that you can earn 250 euro.

Teams that are interested in working with us, feel free to contact us at

If you can not sell 25 or 50 tickets, no problem at all! We hope that all the teams just show their colours at the event, which will be great publicity for us all!

This offer will be based on the sales of paper tickets, NOT THE ONLINE VERSION.
