Shanghai Lions Football Club

124 SPL Games done 8 more to go !

Amigo’s and Amiga’s,


The world cup is around the corner and our SPL has only 8 games to go ! Needless to say that we were extremely luck with the weather this year and it seems that somebody upstairs must either like the SPL or is watching our games all the time. Super 48 and Shanghai 2000 both ended their season and for Super 48 they will be pleased not to be last this season and Shanghai 2000 can be pleased with their second half of the season performance as they played better and better in the last games.

For the other teams there as still some battles going on but in the next three week it’s the end of the largest SPL season in our history. Lets finish the games in good spirit and enjoy playing football in Shanghai.


The Mini-World Cup is getting closer by the week and behind the scene everybody is working hard to make it best event ever held in Shanghai. Ps make sure to submit your players list as we need to know who is coming. Our end of the season ceremony and party will be part of the Mini World Cup event more details to follow soon.


Japan – Galacticos 11-1 A wedding caused havoc in the Galacticos squad as key players were missing / the Japanese we kind enough as usual to borrow a few player to them and the only goal Galacticos scored came from a Japanese player !


ERS – SFL FC 1-1 Both teams were very close in the ranking and it was a very close game indeed. Sport for Life scored first by Evgeny and after that ERS pushed for the equalizer and finally got it  with a goal from Fabien !


Marlins – Shanghai 2000 2-1 In Shanghai 2000’s last game of the season they decided to let all the youngsters play. It seemed to pay off as they took an early lead however the Marlins fought back and got the equalizer right before half time by Pete. Second half was a good battle with both teams going for the win. The Marlins counted on their experience and clinched all three points by a goal from Alex !


Flamenkos – Super 48 1-0 Think a lot of playes of the Flamenkos had watched the Barcelone – Atletico Madrid game. They tried to copy the same playing style and speed but could catch that level ! Three points they took and Super 48 was happy enough to end the season with a small loss.


Lions – Gremio 5-3 A good game of football with two teams fighting for every ball and plenty of chances to score ! Lions scored first but Gremio soon equalized and at the end of the half the Lions took the lead after Gremios keeper couldn’t control a low shot. In the second half it was more of the same Lions scored 3-1 and Gremio came straight back 3-2. After the Lions took a 4-2 lead the president himself thought its time to play and he surprised a lot of people including himself to score with a hard volley in the corner of the goal ! Gremio came back again 5-3 but soon it was game over !
