At the Sign of Le Lion Vert
In many football leagues, the new season is now getting underway in earnest, and we’re sure you’re champing at the bit for some Guernsey FC action. For anyone who was unaware of the ground works taking place at Footes Lane to improve the athletics track, it may have come as quite a blow, then, to see how long we have to wait for our first home match…
We don’t know about you, but here on the media team we’re not only desperate to see our lads back on the pitch – especially with Rocco’s return, eh! – but we’re also super-keen to catch up with all the friends we’ve made over the years following the Green Lions, and generally hang out in the wonderful company our fellow GFC fans.
If that sums up your emotions too, and you’ve therefore been feeling a little crestfallen at the prospect of having no home games till October 6th, then be glum no longer – we have some great news for you!
While we’re playing away, here’s a new place to stay – Guernsey FC’s very own pop-up pub! This new venue, which we’ve dubbed “Le Lion Vert” (see what we did there?), will be springing up before kick-off for each of our first seven league games this season, taking us right up to the first home game in October.
You can join us at Le Lion Vert in the plush and family-friendly surroundings of St. Pierre Park Hotel, where we’ll have all the action streamed live on the big screen via GFCTV, a pub grub menu, and selected drinks at pub prices – everything you need, in fact, for an awesome GFC-supporting matchday experience – in fact the only ingredient that needs adding to the mix… is YOU!
We’ll be announcing further details – such as opening hours for each game – in due course, so watch this space for more info on our special space to watch! Thanks to our headline sponsor, Handpicked Hotels, for helping bring our vision to life.
Hope to see you there, at Le Lion Vert!
