Together for honest sport! The European League of Football has signed a contract with the National Anti Doping Agency of Germany (NADA) and joins the foundation's testing programme based in Bonn with immediate effect. In the first season of the newly founded league, which starts on June 19, extensive competition controls will be carried out by NADA.
“We are very happy that NADA will be at our side from the start with its testing programme and results management. Since the organization and implementation of fair, safe and clean sport is one of the primary goals of our league, the establishment of a transparent and consistent anti-doping system was a priority right from the start, ”says Zeljko Karajica, Managing Director of the European League of Football.
NADA provides advice to the European League of Football, the participating franchises and their players and ensures the implementation of uniform, equal standards for everyone. “We look forward to campaigning for fair sport together with the European League of Football. The aim should be to work together to support and protect clean athletes from the beginning of the new league, ”says Dr. Lars Mortsiefer, board member and chief legal counsel of NADA.
The European League of Football starts its premiere season on June 19, with Berlin Thunder, the Hamburg Sea Devils, Frankfurt Galaxy, the Cologne Centurions, Stuttgart Surge and the Leipzig Kings from Germany as well as the Barcelona Dragons from Spain and the Panthers Wroclaw from Poland.
