2017 adult alignments announced

January 16th, 2017

This evening the British American Football Association (BAFA) announced adult league divisional alignments for the 2017 season.

The announcement confirms that NFC Premier conference that the Pirates senior team belongs to bids farewell to the Coventry Jets, who have been relegated to the NFC 1 South division. In their place we welcome the newly promoted Edinburgh Wolves.

The NFC Premier in full looks like:

Tamworth Phoenix
Merseyside Nighthawks
East Kilbride Pirates
Lancashire Wolverines
Sheffield Giants (formerly Predators)
Edinburgh Wolves

Pirates Chairman Amanda McDonald commented: “We’re delighted to welcome the Edinburgh Wolves to our conference. It’s great to see the addition of another Scottish team as this is not only helps reduce our travel, but makes it much easier for fans of both teams to attend away games. The Wolves had a great season last year and we’re very much looking forward to competing against them.”
