Ghent Gators not-eligible for play-offs

Ghent Gators will be suspended from BAFL D1 effective immidiatly following their forfeit in the game against the Black Angels

The team will be automatically placed in second division next year. This leads to an automatic promotion of the FAFL D2 champion as well. The relegation game can still be played between the Argonauts and the D2 winner but both teams will be sure of a place in D1 next year.

This also means that the Gators will lose their place in the playoffs and as a result the Waterloo Warriors will now take their place as the number 4 seed.

Here you can read the full Belgian American Football League – BAFL statement:

“Following the game between the Ghent Gators and the Brussels Black Angels, the BAFL formally confirms that the result of the game cannot be considered as an Act of God and is to be ruled as a forfeit according to point 7 of the BAFL National Division Regulations.

According to the regulations applicable, the forfeit results in a score of 25-00 to be accounted in the current championship in favour of the Brussels Black Angels. The Ghent Gators are automatically downgraded for the current championship and will be relegated to the second division for the next season.

As a consequence thereof, the setup of the playoffs to be played on 11 June 2017 will be adapted as follows:
The Brussels Black Angels (Rank I) will face the Waterloo Warriors (Rank IV).
The Brussels Tigers (Rank II) will face the Ostend Pirates (Rank III).

Considering the relegation of the Ghent Gators in second division, it will also be up to the Antwerp Argonauts and the winner of the FAFL Bowl to decide whether they want to play the FAFL relegation playoffs scheduled on 25th June 2017 or to have it cancelled.”
