The 2004 Maple League season officially kicks off on 29 May, but the Turku Trojans' season will start on 8 May, with an international game. As reigning Finnish Champions, the Trojans will represent Finland in the EFL Euro Bowl tournament.
On 8 May, a team from Sweden, the Arlanda Jets, will fly into Finland to play the Trojans, and the following weekend, the Trojans will travel to Moscow to face the Russian league champion Moscow Patriots. The team with the best record from this group will proceed to the next round of the tournament, which will be played later in the summer.
