[SPL News] Championship still undecided

Amigo’s and Amiga’s,

For several years the SPL Championship was decided on the last playing day ! Of course an ending like the BPL we can’t match you can call it a horror movie if you are a United fan or the best comedy of the year if you are a City fan ! All in all it shows that football is top class entertainment especially when both teams HAVE to win.

In the SPL we play every Sunday like that both teams are going for the full attack whether they are in the bottom or at the top of the League. That’s why sofar we have 511 goals scored this season and that’s an average of 4 per game an absolute SPL record !

This coming Sunday we might have a new Champion depending on the result as a win or a draw will do for the Hawks but they play the E-Rouge and they are tough French Cookies ! Anything can happen and the Hard Days Night need to win to still believe in a miracle ! Pls come and watch the final games of the SPL ! Entertainment is guaranteed !

  • Flamenkos 1-5 Cowboys

Surprise loss for the Flamenkos who blamed it on their lack of numbers which recently seems to be true as they can hardly bring 11 players to the field ! Cowboys were very happy with their win and left the field on their horses to go party into town !

  • Hawks 7-1 Super 48

No surprise here the win kept the Hawks on track for the second SPL title / Super 48 did manage to get their weekly goal and they are looking forward to their Galacticos game in two weeks !

  • Hard Days Night 5-3 ERS

One of the best SPL games of the season. At any given time the game could be won by either side. ERS took an early lead but just before half time HDN took over the lead 2-1. The second half ERS looked more dangerous especially from the midfield and took over the lead 2-3. They had a golden opportunity to end the game with an “one on one” but got denied by a great safe of Jack the HDN keeper. ERS were very unlucky to concede a penalty for a handball which blocked a shot straight at the player and a slip of their goal keeper on the wet pitch as HDN took the final lead 4-3, netted one more a few minutes from time 5-3 ! Great performance from both teams it makes the SPL great !


So the heat is back in Shanghai and we can have a decisive weekend ahead of us as well please put 10th of June in your agenda as the dates of the SPL Semi Cup-Finals !

  • 1000-1200 Pistolera Bulls – Super 48
  • 1200-1400 Hawks – ERS
  • 1400-1600 Hard Days Night – Cowboys


Looking forward to see you all at the field on Sunday !


Freek – SPL President on behalf of the SPL Committee
