We are delighted to announce that our new “home” for the forth coming season will be The Six Yard Box in Elephant and Castle.
All branches of the London Lions Network will be gathering at the bar for all scheduled TV games during the 2016/17 campaign and beyond. So when Villa are on TV, you know where we'll be!
So far, the confirmed televised games are:
Sun 7th August 2016: Sheffield Wednesday v Aston Villa, KO Sunday 4:30pm on Sky Sports 1
Wed 10th August 2016: Luton Town v Aston Villa, KO Wednesday 7:45pm on Sky Sports 1
Sat 20th August 2016: Derby County v Aston Villa, KO Saturday 5:30pm on Sky Sports 1

Sat 24th September 2016: Aston Villa v Newcastle United, KO Saturday 5:30pm on Sky Sports 1
The Six Yard Box was born in January 2015. The bar is football themed, decked in wall to wall Shoot Magazine posters, football memorabilia and Panini stickers (keep your eyes peeled for Olof Mellberg hiding amongst the collection!) Located in the Artworks Box Park in Elephant and Castle, just around the corner from the tube station, the bar has agreed to be the official pub for the Aston Villa London Lions and most recently hosted our 1994 League Cup Final replay screening.
Whilst the bar doesn’t sell food, they are very happy for you to bring your own or are happy to order for you from one of the many street food containers in the Artworks development.
TV matches will be scheduled through our Facebook page, with new games and socials to be added throughout the course of the season.
We hope by having a centralised bar for the new campaign, it will give lots of you the opportunity to get to know each other further and be able to celebrate/commiserate our performances in good company.
Please do wear your colours and introduce yourselves to each other at the televised games, especially if you are new to the group!
