INTERLEAGUE GROUP A

new Season, new Challenges

Another successful year is in the books for the Euro Interleague. We would like to congratulate Olimpija Karlovac for re-claiming the A-Pool title. We would also like to congratulate Zagreb and Varazdin for hanging on to their positions in A-Pool with wins against Beograd and Trnava. Thank you to all of you who made this year so great and we look forward to another fantastic year in 2019.

With that being said, we would like to begin registration for the 2019 EIB season. If your club plans on participating next year, please notify us as soon as possible so that we can have an accurate count of teams in order to properly prepare for the season. We plan on having an offseason meeting in the near future and hopefully discuss possible restructuring and other matters.

Best Regards, Euro Interleague Baseball
