Europe The AFL Germany has released its plans for season 2005, which will again see the five clubs from 2004 competing. Included is a nation-wide preseason training camp to be held during March in the picturesque city of Fulda, open to all payers, fans and officials from across Germany and hoping to help consolidate the league and the German national side. This year the season will consist of ten rounds run April to October, with all sides meeting both home and away. It had been rumoured that there may have been a team forming in Cologne, as a number of the playing list from the Düsseldorf Lions live in the Cologne/Bonn area, but it appears that for competitive league play these will continue on with the Lions for 2005 while they investigate forming a future team.

The training camp will be held from the 11th-13th of March and will involve both on and off-field training. Entry in open to all interested parties regardless of previous experience and the camp will cover practical aspects of training both at the individual and group level, public relations, club management and the structural and organisatorial aspects of managing the national league. There are a number of interested parties around Germany looking to start clubs, and hopefully with a national approach there will be progress made in helping them off the ground.
