Shanghai Lions Football Club

Exciting times for the Lions !



We are reaching the final weeks of the season and looking at the program for the Lions you can conclude that it’s very good to be a Lion and that our Club is more vibrant than ever before !


–        In the SIFL we have three games to go and are leading the league by 4 points to DIB who still has to play four games. This Saturday we are up versus the Krauts who managed to score three goals versus DIB two weeks ago. We need to stay focused and win all three games first of all because it will make us Champion for the second time in a row and secondly it will mean that we end the season unbeaten a record held by the Shooters until today. The week after we play the Beavers/United and in between we try to play against Japan in order to finish the season as soon as possible ! Playing against teams in the bottom is never easy as you tend to take it too easy that’s why we urge every player to stay focused and come to the training and be prepared for our game on Saturday !

–        In the SPL we have two more games May 18 vs Gremio and May 25 vs Cowboys here as well we can end the season unbeaten and that will be a SPL record.

–        On May 25 Lions U17 will play versus Japan U17 at SRFC 1200 kick off. It will be a good test to see how much we progressed with the youngsters who have been training hard throughout the whole season !

–        June 1st The Lions Legends will play in their new “Mortons” outfit a league game versus the Emeralds FC. Sofar unbeaten in the Veteran’s League they will try to keep this record as long as they can !

–        June 14/15 The Lions will participate in the Green City Mini World Cup. A big event with 12 teams battling it out for the World Champion Ship. The event will get a lot of attention in the press and we like to send a strong team mixed with the best of the Saturday/Sunday players. After the finals there will be a big carnival on the pitch where all Lions are invited to party and celebrate the SPL title and hopefully a few more !

–        June 21 Xiamen international tournament. A great tournament where the Lions are going to defend their last year’s title.

–        June 28 SIFL closing tournament


In between we will organize our Lions end of the season Party but first we have some work to do !


Go Lions Go !!!! Cheers Freek
