BritBowl

BritBowl is the Championship game of the British American Football League (BAFL) in the United Kingdom. It is the most prestigious of the league's three Bowl games that constitute BritBowl Weekend, an event held annually at Don Valley Stadium in Sheffield. Only teams in the Premier Division of BAFL are eligible to compete in BritBowl. The lower Divisions have their own championship games.

To mark it's 20th Anniversary, roman numerals were introduced for the first time to identify the game. The 2006 Championship became known as BritBowl XX. The previous nineteen Championship games were redesignated as BritBowl I to BritBowl XIX respectively.

Since BritBowl XX the winning team has been presented with the Boston Trophy. The current champions are London Blitz, who defeated Coventry Cassidy Jets 14-6 in BritBowl XXI on 23 September 2007.
