Birmingham Lions Play 60

Birmingham Lions Play 60

A large number of Birmingham Lions travelled to London on Wednesday 15th July to support the NFL in their delivery of a Play 60 Summer Bowl event.  The event saw a number of local schools together for a day of American Football which consisted of skills, team building and games.

This is not the first time the Lions have been asked by the NFL to support the NFL International Play 60 programme.  Hopefully more opportunities will be developed in the future to enable the Lions to support the NFL in spreading the enjoyment and excitement around the game we love.
