Shanghai Lions Football Club

[SPL News] 5 rounds to go

Amigo’s and Amiga’s,

Last Sunday we had a full 5 games program and now we have catched up with most of the postponed games. If the weather stays normal we will be able to finish the season as per schedule and we can start thinking of our next season 10 years SPL anniversary !

  • Flamenkos 9-1 Super 48

The Flamenkos strikers had a pleasant game with both Joost and Josue scoring a hat-trick ! Super 48 will need to work hard to get a few more points this season ! Last season they won their last game of the season vs the Galacticos and this season that will be there final game again !

  • Lions 1-1 Cowboys

The game was overshadowed by a horrific injury of Lions player’s Mus… His leg was ripped open by an unintentional tackle of a Cowboy player. All players were shocked to see the wound and poor Mus had to be transported by ambulance to the hospital where he got 15 stitches to close the wound. Luckily there was no further damage to his leg but he will not be able to play for a long time. Both teams were not in the mood to continue the game but the referee told them to play on. We wish Mus a fast recovery and do hope one day to see him back on the pitch !

  • Hawks 3-0 Galacticos

Statistics don’t lie ! If the Hawks keep winning their games they will be Champion for the second time on their history. Galacticos despite their loss can be positive about their performance versus the current number 1 !

  • ERS 3-4 Pistolera Bulls

A real SPL thriller which made Michael J feel proud upstairs ! ERS showed their intention to finish high in the top of the SPL this season leading 3-1 at half time. The Bulls changed their playing system and went all out on the attack  ! We have seen it before you don’t want to face an angry Bull they equalized 3-3 and in the last 5 minutes the Bulls scored the winner 3-4 !


We have our first May holidays this week but because its during the weekdays we can hold 3 games on April 29th. So please come and watch your favorite team playing in Green City !

  • 1000-1200 AM Galacticos – Cowboys
  • 1200-1400 PM Flamenkos – Pistolera Bulls
