CESTRIAN BOWL IX PLAYOFFS ARE… HERE!

Good morning gentlemen,


We are finally at Week 15 of the 2021 NFL Season and that means it’s time to start the process of crowning this year’s Champion. This has been the most competitive year we have ever run with all 24 teams playing right through to the end so thank you to everyone for making it such a great competition.


Final league placings for the NFC and AFC can be found here - https://www.cestrianbowl.com/finalplacings21


Over the next 3 weeks all 24 teams will have the opportunity to compete in a cross-divisional competition with the chance to have their name added to the list of illustrious previous winners.


We will be running 2 competitions over the next 3 weeks; each league will run a Championship and Consolation playoff in the following format:


Week 15 – Quarter Finals

Week 16 – Semi Finals

Week 17 – Championship Week


In Week 17 the finalists from the NFC and AFC will be competing for 2 Championships simultaneously. The winner of the Conference game will be crowned as the individual league Champion and the highest overall scoring player from the 4 inter-conference finalists will be crowned the Cestrian Bowl IX Champion.


To keep things interesting for all players we will be running a second-tier competition called the Commissioner’s Shield, this will be run in the same way and there is a non-financial incentive for the winners… more on that later.
