I can't believe we've gotten to this point - the peak of the EFL, an EFL championship. We've had a miracle run through the playoffs this season, and this season as a whole is a great representative of

On a more personal note, I wanted to say thanks to the Kraken for a great season. It's heartbreaking to see it end like this after such a great season, but up until this point it was one of the funnes

The Eastern Conference representative in today's EFL Championship Game is the Minnesota Frontier. The Frontier are making their first appearance in the EFL Championship Game this year as it is just their 4th season of existence. They joined the EFL during the Season 21 expansion and have built the team up quickly, making it to the playoffs for the first time in their 3rd season and now making it to the EFL Championship Game in their 4th season of existence. With a win tonight, they can claim their first EFL title and also become the first team from the Season 21 expansion to win a championship. The Frontier are getting hot at the right time as they have now won seven games in a row and scored 55 points and 48 points in their two playoff games. Though they are the underdog in today's matchup, this team is very capable of winning a championship.

The Western Conference representative and the home team in today's matchup is the New Orleans Kraken. The Kraken have had a tough history as they would join the EFL in the Season 11 expansion, but would not make their first playoff appearance until Season 20 and would not win a playoff game until this year in Season 24. However, the Kraken's fortune has started to turn around in recent years as this is their fifth consecutive playoff appearance and this looks like their best team yet. The Kraken dominated the regular season this year with a 15-1 record and they broke the single season records for point differential with a +326 point differential and for points scored with 630 points scored. The Kraken haven't lost since Week 2 and they just need one more win to cap their turnaround of the last few years off with a championship. The Kraken will look to win their first championship tonight and will try to end the Eastern Conference's streak of six consecutive championship wins.

The teams are getting ready to take the field. Both teams were the best team in their respective conference this season and both teams will be fighting for their first championship in franchise history. It all comes down to this. 

 

It is now time for the coin toss. The Frontier choose Heads.

The Kraken win the toss and decide to defer to the second half, so the Frontier will be receiving the ball first.
