Launched in 2014, the Nordic Historical Fencing League (NHFL) is the world’s first and premier international HEMA tournament league, a cooperation between organizers in Sweden, Norway, Denmark and Finland.
2016 is the league’s third year and spans the following tournaments:
- Helsinki Open: 23rd January – Facebook event page, web page

We will organize a Men’s Longsword division and a Women’s Longsword division with competitions at all four tournaments, in addition to a Rapier & Dagger division with competitions in Copenhagen, Oslo and Örebro.
Like last year, there will also be a team competition in the longsword calculated from the scores of the individual tournaments.
There will be a separate prize ceremony after the last tournament where the winners of the league will be recognized and celebrated for their efforts.
