Viking Cup Shanghai coming up

This year, the Annual pan-Asia Nordic Football tournament Viking Cup is set to take place in Shanghai from Thursday 17th to Sunday 20th April 2014.

The tournament which is fought with great enthusiasm from all teams is also a friendly get-together with not least the beer drinking contest one of the highlights.

The hosting team, Shanghai Vikings, are tough guys on the turf. Last year, the team won the SIFL Championship – a tournament for foreign football clubs in Shanghai.

Last year, KL Vikings were the hosts for Viking Cup 2013. According to legend, the teams managed to drink 5,070 Carlsberg beers, 120 bottles of hard liquor and 150 bottles of wine.

“This is an absolut(e) record. Well done everybody! And please seek help…,” the Bangkok Vikings’ facebook entry adds.

The Bangkok Vikings have had a special outfit made for the event. The words “Happy Ending” decorates the butt of the shorts.

  1. PS.
    I have deleted the photos of the Shanghai Lions. Roaring as they were, I see they are quite irrelevant to the story about brave Shanghai Vikings hosting the Viking teams from the rest of the region.

  2. How embarrassing!
    Could somebody please educate me and our readers of the teams that are playing in this year’s Viking Cup? Please include their websites or facebook pages and other contact details.
    Sorry for the mess-up!
