Austria promoted to CEB cup

With an all-Austrian Federations Cup final, the question was which team would earn the promotion to the CEB cup. As the Vienna MetroStars beat the Dornbirn Indians in the opening game of the tournament 16-6, the expectation was that the team from the Austrian capital would win. Things would go a bit different though as the Indians beat the MetroStars 19-1.
