Expat Football League Dinner

The world game is well represented in Moscow, at all levels. The over 28’s expat football league is in its 9th season and is a League of Nations in its own right, with many continents represented. Tournament sponsors, Allianz Rosno, with the Stakan Restaurant in Kuznetsky Most, kindly sponsored the League’s annual dinner and awards ceremony on 22 May, which was well attended. Founder and President Nick Rees did the honours and led the celebrating (within reason, of course, as there are still a few games to go this season). The most successful club, the Moscow Flagons (named in homage to the local oval ball Dragons) were very well represented, and the Moscow Bhoys were in good voice. The most enthusiastic table belonged to Russia Today, still in their first season, but with a cosmopolitan team (shorthand for expensively shipped in African stars), they have only one possible direction in the league table. Biggest cheer of the night was when Okan Yildirim of team Pasha got up on stage on crutches after a nasty ankle break, now on the mend thanks to the exceptional kindness of Allianz Rosno. The league is expanding all the time, with new teams due. Sign up at
