LONDON LIONS FC
London Lions FC was formed in 2017 and is a founding member of the London Supporters League. The team is run by South London Lion member Matt Oliver. We are the current reigning Champions of the London Supporters League for the 2018/2019 season.
During the season, we play at Coram's Fields in Russell Square on Saturday mornings, in nine- a-side fixtures lasting for 60 minutes per match, competing against other supporters clubs in London including the likes of Celtic, Lazio, Lyon, Juventus and Porto. The team also play in adhoc tournaments and one off friendly fixtures and charity matches.
Training is typically held on Wednesday evenings throughout the season and in the off season. Location can change based on numbers and time of the year.
We are proud to be sponsored by the Six Yard Box in Elephant and Castle, our home for all televised Aston Villa games in London. The football themed bar have kindly provided London Lions FC with a full kit for the whole squad, including our bespoke embroidered London Lions badge and squad numbers.
Matt says, "The team is open to all Villa fans in London who are registered members of the Aston Villa London Lions Network. We're always keen to welcome new players into the squad. The team has a terrific social side too, where we regularly hang around after matches and training for a few drinks. It's lots of fun and all we ask that anyone who wishes to join the squad is committed to training and playing."
