The blue-and-white went undefeated at 8-0, defeating a mixed Danish and Italian team called the "Barbarians" in the championship game by a slim margin of 14-13.

The Israeli women came in a respectable third place, defeating the German national team to take the bronze. Israel will be hosting the 2014 IFAF Flag Football World Championships next summer in Jerusalem.
