The many rules and special terms used in American Football can be confusing, even for die-hard fans. American Football is a very young sport developing at high speed. If you have a hard time with terms like “down”, “line of scrimmage” or “clipping”, you might want to read the SWARCO RAIDERS Tirol’s detailed explanation of the terms and rules.
Since autumn 2018, the SWARCO RAIDERS Tirol also have their own basketball section in their sports family. Already in the first year of its existence, the team succeeded in advancing to the second Bundesliga, called Basketball Second League (B2L). The season runs from September to March.
Cheerleading belongs to American football like the Alps belong to Tyrol. And the cheerleaders of the SWARCO RAIDERS Tirol belong to the best and most successful in Austria. In cheer, in contrast to dance, acrobatics are clearly in the foreground. With daring pyramids the SWARCO Raiderettes take the spectators' breath away.
Free admission for MCI students, alumni and employees: MCI members can attend all Raiders Football and Basketball home games free of charge.

Every SWARCO RAIDERS Tirol home game is an event in itself. DJs, presenters, dance and acrobatic shows by the Raiderettes cheerleaders and much more make the games a unique sports festival. Following the American tradition, pre-game events such as Tailgate BBQ’s and post-game parties with players and cheerleaders provide the perfect setting to get the crowd going.
