MANNHEIM, Germany — American Forces Network-Europe will repeat its telecast of the European high school Division I, II and III championship games, adding those games to the Thanksgiving Day football lineup.
The telecast of the Division III championship game between Alconbury and Menwith Hill, the Division II game between Bitburg and Ansbach and the Division I game between Ramstein and Heidelberg will air on AFN’s Pentagon Channel beginning at 11 a.m. Thursday.
“We had more than 500 people who contacted us saying they liked the coverage, wanted a repeat airing, or a copy of the game,” AFN’s George Smith in a release announcing the re-telecast of the games played originally on Nov. 7.
