Lions open the season with a party at TAMATI

When we held our Season Opening Party last Friday we didn’t know what to expect. How many Lions would show up ? How would the atmosphere be in the place of the new Sponsor ? How would the food be ?

All I can say is that everything was better than expected. First of all we had over 35 Lions showing up and that alone already created a fantastic ambiance. However the team of TAMATI did a great job to make us feel at home from the beginning. The whole place was reserved for us and the staff was so kind and helpful and they made sure that every single moment there was enough food for us even the drinks they had prepared for us well in advance. We are lucky to have such a nice family place as in the end we are one big family !

Lions open 2013/2014 season with a party at TAMATI

We had our traditional review of the each player performance of last season and heard from them what each player would improve this season. The new players were welcomed on stage to have drink. A few high-lites, Fabie was crowned “Mr Maybe”, Nicolas was considered a valuable player for the Lions despite the fact that he doesn’t know how to play football, Big John was held responsible for small Jonny’s disappearance, Charles is playing much better since he was married, Azzeddine said that if he is angry he doesn’t mean it he just like every Lion to play like him !

After that all of us went to the other sponsor the Revolucion Bar. Over there, our drinking skills were tested and we donated a few Lions Balls to the staff.

Great way to start the season ! We are looking forward to our new shirts and hope to show them on our website as soon as possible!

Enjoy the break and stay fit! Cheers Freek

Words from Freek BOELEN – Shanghai LIONS President

Lions,

Time is flying we are almost in October and our agenda is getting busy !

We are very pleased to have found a new (shirt) sponsor TAMATI thanks to Charles effort and Revolucion Bar thanks to the effort of Thomas.  Just on time to add on to our new set of jerseys. Recently several teams (including ourselves) found out that their regular sponsors are reducing the amounts or stopped completely the sponsorship. The reason is simple doing business in China is not easy and very competitive as well football in China as a whole doesn’t have a good reputation.

For us we want to be different and show that football in China can be great ! That’s why we created our club and that’s why you decided to join. TAMATI has a very good potential to cooperate with the Lions as they belong to the largest franchise group in Korea, owning many famous brands in the food industry ! We can grow with them together in China we have the same objective to be the best in our field.

We need all of you to show up on Friday and let us know whether you come or not so that they can prepare the food and the drinks beforehand. Lets open our new season with a bang. One of the key of our success is our team spirit and especially off the pitch its important !

Its good to see that our trainings are running very well last week we had 20 youngsters + 34 seniors training = that’s 52 Lions!, quite amazing ! This week we had 30 seniors Lions, great!

Please some training pictures at the following link:  http://www.sendspace.com/file/pu62l1 , as well as a training video at the following link: http://www.sendspace.com/file/mglk3a

Please try to be on time as its hard for the coaches to change the numbers all the time as well it disrupt the trainings.

We organize a friendly vs Japan this Saturday 1000-1200 at waigaoqiao / all are welcome but you need to register online at: http://shanghai-lions.com/matches/228/

Hope to see everybody on Friday at 8pm at TAMATI (Fuzhou Lu / Hubei Lu), Cheers

Next weekend is Lions’ weekend

Lions,

Our most successful season in our history is almost done ! But we are still hungry for more trophies ! When we asked you to register for our party on the 22nd of June we noticed that several Lions (including myself) would not be able to make it as many would be going home for the summer break. This will miss our target to celebrate with as many family and friends our success ! Therefore we decided to make next weekend a Lions’s weekend we believe that’s the best way to end this special season.

Here is the schedule for Saturday 15th & Sunday 16th of June, 2013:

  • Saturday 1000-1200 SIFL CUP final Lions vs Dutch at Waigaoqiao
  • Saturday 1200-1600 SIFL End of the season tournament at Waigaoqiao
  • Saturday 1600-1800 SIFL award Ceremony at Waigaoqiao / Lions to receive several awards !
  • Saturday 2000- late LIONS own end of the Season Party + award Ceremony at BLOC / Please bring all your family and friends !
  • Sunday    1100-1600 SPL end of the season Tournament at Jinqiao (everybody welcome)
  • Sunday    1600-1900 SPL end of the season Party + award ceremony at Latina ! (The largest Cup and the Brazilian Samba Dancers has been ordered for the Lions)

 

Let’s celebrate all together and make this LION’S WEEKEND unforgettable ! You can register now on line for all the events ! For our Lions Party you don’t need to register as we count on all of you to come !!

Poker game at BLOC

Lions Poker 2 (2)After our victory 7-1 on Saturday March 2nd morning against Kangbei FC in the SIFL Cup 1/4 finals, many Lions felt good and decided to go have a brunch at our beloved sponsor BLOC.

After filling our belly up with good food from the fresh new menu, we all switched to POKER mode.

We were not less than 10 players! all motivated to show other shills than football (for those who have any anyways)…

The game started slowly but Simon S., our SPL Coach, thought he had the game in hand, as usual, but got tackled by Charles G. and lost all his stack after only 30mn; on a controversial call…

Chris S., who didn’t even really want to play at first, but after watching a couple of hans, decided to join the party, to end up losing his stack afyer one hour. He finally said: “it’s now definitively time for me to go home get some rest”… indeed!

Then, the table suffered heavy casualties…one by one, Romain H, Simon S. (2nd buy in), Azzeddine T., Fabien B, and Thomas G.  fell to prove their poker skills and lost face (including their poker face.)

We were then down to 4 players: Mat. W., Charles G., Benj and Seb. H.(the mighty German).

Benj showed some good will and motivation, but his greed got to him and he has to face the superiority of Charles G. who took everything he had left but kindly gave Benj enough to take a cab home…

Seb. H. finished 3rd, succombing to the inevitable fate of losing his all-in to Charles.

Charles G. and Mat. W. respectively with 1150 rmb and 1050 rmb decided to call it a day and enjoy the rest of the evening, spending the money of their fellow teammates, quite easily earned they both agreed…

It was definitively a success and we all hope to organize it agaian soon (at least Charles & Mat do…)
