At the moment, spirits are high in Korean American football as the new season has been started last week. Alike Super Bowl, the championship game of American Football League in the United States, Kimchi Bowl is the championship game of Korean American Football Association (KAFA).
The Korean American football teams are divided into two groups; college team and senior team. The championship league for college teams is called ‘Tiger Bowl’, while called ‘Gwangaeto Bowl’ for senior league. The Kimchi Bowl is the final champion league that puts the college team champion against the senior team champion.
