Shanghai Lions Football Club

SPL is looking good this season number 12 !

Amigo’s and Amiga’s,


Welcome back to everybody hope you all had a great summer break ! Talking about summer it’s hard to believe we didn’t have a summer in Shanghai. Any way it’s better to have all the rain now than during our season.


We have worked hard behind the scenes to get your season ready and we are pleased to send you the new Captains List if any information is lacking or is incorrect please drop us an email so we can correct it.


We are pleased to inform you that we extended our cooperation with our three venues for next season and we are excited to be able to play on the best fields in Shanghai. (Century Park / Jinqiao Golden Bridge / SRFC) / We will send you a rule and regulation of each venue and strongly ask you the respect these rules !


The league fee is set at 23000 rmb for the season which is unchanged from last season.


Our first SPL round will be on September the 14 and we urge all teams to be ready for that date.  Even if teams are ready on September the 7th we could organize a match game as the fields are available and in perfect shape.


The dates will be Sept 14/21 – Oct 12/19/26 – Nov 2/9/16/23/30 – Dec 7 and maybe Dec 14 for the first part of the season.


Yamada-san will finalize the match schedule and if you have one date you cannot play please advise it to him asap so that he can adjust the schedule upfront.


We are glad that Mika will help us on the website and if you like to change your team profile on the site / ps send him your new information Mikael Martins


We are glad that Simon will help us out on the admin site and pr site of the league.


We have created a lot of goodwill during our special Mini-World Cup event and we like to build on it so that more people hear about the SPL and more spectators will come and watch our games. Always remember that you are the SPL and our reputation is in your hands or feet.


Let’s together make it our best season ever !


Cheers Freek SPL President on behalf of the SPL Committee
