Less than 3 days before the 2017 SIAFL season kicks off and the clock is ticking.

Season 6 of the Shenzhen International Amateur Football League officially begins this Monday (10th April 2017) at the new Xiang Mi Hu Football pitches.


This year there will be 12 teams all competing for the ultimate bragging rights and the envy of all mantelpieces; the SIAFL CUP.

The Lions Football Club

To begin what’s set to be an action packed, 18 weeks of intense football action, we paid a visit to the Lions training ground to see how they are preparing for the new season.

Founded by Ryan Tang in 2015, the lions go by the motto;

Loyalty, Integrity, Original, Noble, Strength


Finishing in respectable 7th place last season, the lions have been working hard pre-season to improve their team play and strengthen their tactics.


Their latest win over The Dragons in the last pre-season friendly match shows they mean business this season with an impressive 9-0 victory and important clean sheet.


We were also impressed by the commitment of the players as even on a cold, wet Thursday evening the team turned up in good numbers of a routine training session.


Everyone is welcome!

Everyone is welcome to come down and watch the football matches which are held every Monday night at the new Xiang Mi Hu football pitches, kick-off is at 8:30pm.


It’s party time!
