Congratulations to KV ADLER RAUXEL from Germany, new IKF Europa Shield 2018 champion after beating 16-13 the English BEC KC in an incredible and unforgettable final in Portugal.
In the spectacular Multiusos de Odivelas sports hall, both teams showed their best kofball and delighted all fans and supporters with an extraordinary, intense and exciting final match. Nothing was clear until the last seconds. A huge compliment to BEC KC for its Silver medal after playing an awesome and superb tournament.
In the previous Bronze medal game, BRNO KK from Czech Republic defeated the English NORWICH KNIGHTS KC by 12-17, becoming the last team to fill the podium.
