The Metro Lions American Football Club will celebrate their 40th Anniversary in March 2019, marking a significant milestone as the oldest American Football club in New Zealand.
Established in 1978, the Metro Lions as they are commonly known, were formed by a group of friends and families who had a growing interest for the game of American Football. In those early years, it was just light scrimmages before the first local league took place in 1982. Since then, Metro Lions has remained true to its strong family and community values with many of its present and past players joining by way of their connection through bloodlines or networks. We invite our large Metro Lions family worldwide and the local football community to participate in our 40th Anniversary Celebration Weekend on 29 and 30 March 2019, in Auckland, New Zealand.
Early bird tickets are on sale now for our Black-Tie Dinner with further details about the 40th Anniversary Celebration Weekend to be announced in due course. Stay tuned to our official club FB page for announcements www.facebook.com/MetroLionsAmericanFootball/ or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
