The Caesars began play in 1984 originally as a Junior Club alongside the Nottingham Hoods American Football Club before forming our own adult side. The Hoods stopped play in 1994, and thus boosted the Caesars considerably, who then posted an undefeated 10-0 record in 1995. Since then, the Caesars have seen moderate success, with three conference championships including a trip to the Britbowl in 1997, ending in defeat to the Redbridge Fire 26-7.
Although the team lost out to the Tamworth Phoenix in the 2008 semi-finals, due to the league reshuffle the team earned promotion and in 2008 played in the BAFL 1 South West Conference. The Caesars struggled in 2009 picking up just two wins, 2010 was even less successful with their only win coming at home to the South Wales Warriors on the last day of the season, however this was enough to keep them in Division 1.
In 2012 the Caesars had a good season with an influx of Rookies joining already established players the “Big C” finished with a 7-3 record and made the playoffs. Unfortunately the Caesars fell at the Quarter Final stage away to the Berkshire Renegades.
In 2013 the Caesars were moved into the National Premier Division and it was a season of transition and adjustment to a higher standard of football. The Caesars finished the season with a 1-9 record.
In 2014 the Caesars continued in the National Premier Division and made strides forward providing greater competition against Premiership opponents and making a name for themselves as fierce competitors.
2015 promises to be an exciting year for the Nottingham Caesars with new players and coaches joining the club and a real focus on raising the profile of Nottingham’s only American Football Club within the community.
