UL Vikings travelling to Spain

On Saturday the 22nd November, the UL Vikings will be travelling to Granada in Spain to play a friendly against the Granada Lions, who compete in Serie B of the Liga Nacional de FĂștbol Americano (LNFA). Organised by the Vikings’ Ian Cahill and Alvaro Carvajal Martinez, who played for the Vikings last season, this game is a chance for both teams to continue to grow both their teams and their newer players.

Commenting on the game, Ian Cahill said “This game is part of the second year of the Vikings three year development plan, which we undertook last season. The Vikings are bringing 24 players, 18 of which joined the club in the last 14 months, so this trip is a great opportunity for those players to continue to develop and build up their experience, heading into next season”. The Vikings and the Lions will also hold joint training and club development meetings and get a chance to enjoy some of Granada’s culture, famous throughout Spain.

The game kicks off at 3:30pm local time and will be streamed live at vaughnlive.tv/granadalions. For more information about the game, head over to the Viking’s Facebook page or email them at ulvikings@gmail.com
