History

The Braunschweig Lions (BSL) were founded in 1985. In 1994 they entered the 1. Bundesliga, the present day German Football League (GFL). After three years in the GFL, they won their first championship of the German Bowl in 1997. Since then, the Lions have been in every final of the German Bowl until 2008 and have captured it seven times (1997-1999, 2005-2008). After winning four consecutive titles, they faced drastic restructuring in 2009 and did therefore not qualify for the playoffs. After facing the Hamburg Blue Devils for six times until today in a final game, they have a fierce rivalry with that team.
