The Aston Villa London Lions Network have been invited to play in a new 9-a-side European League and we are looking for players to sign up to the squad.
The league will be made up of eight teams including Celtic, Fiorentina, Juventus, Lazio, Lyon, Porto and Roma London Supporters Clubs , with games played at Coram's Fields, near Russell Square.
Games will last for 60 minutes and will have a referee, with a full fixture list and kick off times listed below:
Saturday 11th March - 11am - Aston Villa London Lions vs Porto FC
Saturday 18th March - 10am - AS Roma Club UK vs Aston Villa London Lions
Saturday 25th March - 12:30pm - Aston Villa London Lions vs Lyondoners (O. Lyon)
Saturday 1st April - 10:00am - Fiorentina Club London vs Aston Villa London Lions

Saturday 6th May - 10:30am - Aston Villa London Lions vs Juventus Club
Saturday 13th May - 10:30am - West London Celtic vs Aston Villa London Lions
We will aim to play in the most current Villa home kit you own so we are all in claret and blue, with traditional white shorts and blue socks. There will be a nominal fee to pay per game which is currently to be determined in agreement with the other teams playing in the league.
London Lions member Matt Oliver is overseeing all arrangements for the league. If you would like to sign up and play, please list the dates you are available and your preferred playing position and send an e-mail to Matt at firstname.lastname@example.org
