German Grappling League

Messaggio Da LLGrappling il Ven Feb 12 2010, 19:08

E' stata formata la German Grappling League.

Dal sito della FILA :

"With the initiation of the German Grappling League, another exciting chapter in the history of FILA Grappling has started. Not unlike the immensly popular German wrestling "Bundesliga" the grappling league will feature tightly organized team championships. The two founders, Daniel Ackerman and Franco de Leonardis - both well-known athletes in the international grappling communities - have managed to bring in other major players in the German-speaking grappling scene, such as Rafael Perlungher (Head of FILA Grappling Europe), Peter Angerer, and Frank Stäblein from the German Top Team. Other important contributors include Malte Janssen, Matthias Siebert, Michael Hockenjos, and Roland Laritz, just to name a few.

Although more than 30 teams applied, only 12 teams have been included into the league. They have been divided into two geographical zones: North and South. The North group includes: Grappling Team Berlin (Frank Burczynski), Taifun Luta Livre Düsseldorf (Armin Eslami), Ruhrpott Lutadores (Jean-Claude Capanna & Thomas Holtmann), Cologne Freefighters/Grappling Team Bonn (Mike Cüppers & Marcel Pino), Sparta Essen (Les Herden), and Grappling Team Hamburg (Matthias Sieber & Göksel Böttcher). The South group includes: Arte Suave/Stallion Cage Stuttgart (Franjo & Dominik Artukovic), German Top Team (Peter Angerer), Team Yogaka Root (Switzerland - Rafael Perlungher), Grappling Union Dornbirn (Austria - Roland Laritz), Suum Cuique Mainz (Frank Stäblein, Daniel Ackerman & Matthias Werner), and Monkeys Aschaffenburg (Franco de Leonardis).
A limited amount of athletes will have to be registered at the beginning of the year and teams will be limited to these athletes during the league year. The German League as it is planned now will allow teams from Germany, Austria, and Switzerland. All participants have to be FILA licenced and all teams will have to be part of their National Grappling Federation.
The teams will face each other for the first time on 20 March 2010, in Dortmund for the North group and in Aschaffenburg for the South group. The competition will take place according to the FILA rules and weight categories (-65, -70, -75, -80, -90, +90 kg). The only exception to the FILA rules will be the allowance of heel hooks, generally considered to cause serious knee injuries. A report on this issue will be made after the first season of the German Grappling League to assess the validity of this decision.
The first and second of each group will be qualified for the playoffs where the winner of the league will be crowned. FILA is convinced that the concept is called to a bright future and will soon be duplicated in other countries, thus opening gates to the European Grappling League that has been on FILA's mind for quite some time. FILA wishes the German Grappling League and its initiators a great success!

Sembra ben organizzato, se non sbaglio la lega della lotta olimpica è anche a premi in denaro. Chissà se lo sarà anche quella del grappling...
