Three members of the Dubrovnik Sharks American football club have been selected to represent the Croatian National Team. Lujo Domaćin, Otton Roca and Marko Miletić will all play for the Croatian team in this flag, or non-contact, version of this all-American sport.
After more than ten years of active work in this sport in Croatia, the first national team has been formed and it will consist of players from each team participating in the annual competition – the Croatia Flag Football League. Players from Zapresic Saints, Osijek Cannons, Bjelovar Greenhorns and Zagreb Thunder, amongst others have all been chosen in the national team.
And the newly formed Croatian team will have their first outing on the 29th and 30th of October when they will play against in Serbia in this year's Balkan Bowl II tournament.
This tournament has been held for the second time and aims to strengthen cooperation between the Balkan and neighbouring countries, establishing and helping the popularization of American football in the region.
