In preparation for the 2023 season, the European League of Football has also pushed the pre-season start forward to April 29th to give the franchises an opportunity to organize another mini-camp on this exact weekend. From this date onwards, all players – including import players – are allowed to train with the team. Homegrown players were allowed to train in Organized Team Activities already. Franchises are also allowed to have combined practices and scrimmages in the pre-season. Scrimmages are registered friendly European League of Football matchups with league officials involved.

· Hamburg Sea Devils at Leipzig Kings on May 20th
· Helvetic Guards at Paris Musketeers on May 20th and May 21st
