The UK3Lions are playing in the World Cup!!! I know what you’re thinking, Rio, the copa cabana, possibly even the Maracana stadium but no not that World Cup, this one is in Moscow, Russia.

The UK3Lions are the official representatives from the UK in the Art-Football World Cup, a tournament that brings together 16 countries to play matches in a selection of amazing stadiums and perform concerts. This whole tournament is done for charity under the banner ‘The Flag of Kindness’ this is a children’s charity which helps support families and pay for urgently needed medical help for children.

SuperCasino are the team sponsor for the UK3Lions who in the group stages have been drawn against Israel, Turkey and Slovenia. Israel are the seeded team and have existed for a very long time so the Lions know that will be a very tough game though it will be a first time playing any of these teams so it’s all unknown

The Lions team are made up of actors, singers, performers and SuperCasinos very own Rob Lamarr is the goalkeeper and will be the compere and host of the teams concert which will be held at Sokolniki Park on 24th May. The last art football concert by the British team was one of the most popular events amongst the countries involved drawing a huge crowd so once again will be hotly anticipated.

The team fly out on the 22nd May and the tournament starts on the 23rd with a massive opening ceremony which includes an artist from every country performing plus many government officials in attendance. With this date nearly upon us excitement is at fever pitch and we thank SuperCasino for their support and will be giving regular team updates on results and future events through this blog.
