The Nottingham Caesars are a British American football team based in Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, England. The Caesars field a senior team in the BAFA NFC 1. The team is affectionately known by its players and fans as "The Big C" and was formed in 1984. They currently play their home games at the Harvey Hadden Stadium in the Bilborough district of Nottingham. The club played in the Premier Division in both the 2013 and 2014 seasons before being placed in the second tier of British American Football following a reshuffle of the League structure.

History[edit]

The old Nottingham Caesars logo

The Caesars began play in 1992, in competition with the cross-town Nottingham Hoods.[1][2] The Hoods saw some success including a conference championship in 1992 under the leadership of import players Mike Grossner and Vic Quirolo.[3] The Hoods stopped play in 1994, and this boosted the Caesars considerably, who then posted an undefeated 10-0 record in 1995. Since then, the Caesars have seen moderate success, with 3 conference championships including a trip to the Britbowl in 1997, ending in defeat to the Redbridge Fire 26-7.[2]

In 2015 the Caesars played in the Northern Football Conference and finished with a record of 4 wins, 5 losses and a tie. [4]

The Nottingham Caesars play their home games at the Harvey Hadden Stadium in Bilborough.
