NHHI American Football was established in 2011 and currently consists of approximately 35 tough guys from various academic years. We train 1-2 times a week depending on the season. Throughout the semester, we arrange matches against other student teams (BI Lions), the top league (Olavs Menn), or the 1st division (Åsane Seahawks, Haugesund Hurricanes). NHHI AF participates in the student championship every time American football is organized, but we’ve also taken part in and won the Student Games in rugby (2018).
In the spring of 2019, NHHI AF went undefeated in the Student Games. During the four matches in the tournament, NHH scored 140 points and didn’t concede a single point. The highlight was defeating BI Lions 54-0 in the final. We aim to build on the team’s sporting success, which is why we conduct purely athletic tryouts. American football is a highly specialized sport, and we need a diverse range of individuals, regardless of your size. You are warmly welcome to showcase your skills!
In addition to the athletic aspect, we are a close-knit and social group that frequently gathers through bonding events, pre-parties, cabin trips, and international excursions.
Does this sound like something for you? Join our tryouts in August! We have no prerequisites, and most of us had never tried American football before joining NHH!
