The GB Lions have confirmed their squad of 75 players for the upcoming men's fixture against Russia on Friday 16th September.
This year we are very proud to announce that 29 members of the 75-strong team are London Blitz players, and at least 2 are Blitz alumni, making the Blitz by far the most represented club in the squad. This is a testament to the talent and dedication of our players, and to the outstanding quality of our coaches.
We are also incredibly pleased to see that 8 of the squad came through the Blitz U19 programme, proving that it's never too early to get started in American Football.
Speaking about the team, GB Lions Men's head coach Mike Callen said: "While I was impressed by the quality of all players who attended trials for the squad, these are the 75 players who I believe give us the best chance of beating Russia, and hopefully either the Netherlands or Czech Republic beyond that."
