BritBowl XXII will take place at the eighteen-month old Keepmoat Stadium, Doncaster on September 20/21.

The 15,000 seat fully enclosed stadium is used by the Coca Cola Championship, Doncaster Rovers, the Doncaster Rugby League team and the Doncaster Belles women's soccer team. Our very own South Yorkshire Mustangs are based on the second pitch at the facility.

For BritBowl we have secured the main stadium facility, which offers a full-length football field, adequate changing facilities for all teams, use of the second pitch for pre game warm-ups. Fans attending the games will be much closer to the action with fully covered seating together with food and drink outlets. The BAFL Shop will also be available throughout the weekend.

Situated very close to the M18 and the A1(M) Doncaster has excellent road and public transport links.

"We are very grateful to Shane Chalmers, Building and Operations Director at the Keepmoat and his staff for their help and cooperation in enabling the BritBowl festivities to continue as planned following the situation we found ourselves in." said Glen Schild, League Chairman. "The facilities available to us at the stadium are excellent and I am sure we can deliver a memorable event for all concerned."

Shane Chalmers said "We are delighted to welcome the BAFL to the Keepmoat, we look forward to hosting the teams and American football fans and showcasing the facilities we have to offer at the stadium."

The event will start at 3:00pm on Saturday, 20th September with the BAFL Youth Championship game – followed by the BAFL 1 Championship game at 7:00pm. Sunday will commence with the BAFL 2 Championship game at noon and end with the National Championship – BritBowl XXII – at 4:00pm.

Mark Blyth, BAFL Operations Director said "Obviously I'm very proud that my hometown will be hosting BritBowl XXII at the superb Keepmoat Stadium. I've been here when Rovers played Leeds in front of 15000 fans and also when the Rugby League team played in front of about 1000. Both times the supporters generated a great atmosphere and I'm 
sure our crowd will do the same."

"After eight great years at Don Valley Stadium, we now face the start of a new relationship with new hosts", he added. "Hopefully we can build just as good a partnership as we did in Sheffield."

Tickets will go on sale in August and further information will be made available shortly.
