Comments

NFL Europa ceased operations on June 29, 2007. The helmet designs shown above were the last ones used by the teams then in the league. This league is descended from the World League of American Football, which included several teams in North America and lasted for just two seasons (1991 and 1992). With increased support from the NFL, the league was resurrected as NFL Europe in 1995 with the three old European WLAF teams (Barcelona, London, and Frankfurt) returning to be joined by three new teams. Berlin was added as an expansion team in 1999 to replace the England Monarchs, which folded following the 1998 season. In 2004, the Barcelona (Spain) Dragons franchise folded and was replaced with a new team, the Cologne (Germany) Centurions. For 2005, the Scottish Claymores folded and were replaced with another new team, the Hamburg (Germany) Sea Devils.
