***************************

London Calling is the opening round of the UKU Tour for the Open and Women's divisions.  We welcome the best Open and Women's teams from outside the UK to this event.  The current reigning champions are the German national teams (Open and Women) who came and raided the UK trophy cabinet last year.

In 2012, we moved to the fantastic fields at UCL Sports Ground at Shenley nr St Albans on the outskirts of London.  In addition to the great facilities, this venue makes it possible to set up some exciting early-evening show-games which last year featured GB v Sweden and GB v Germany in the open and women's divisions respectively.

The venue has space for 26 or more great fields, onsite camping, and is conveniently located for all of the London airports (Luton is closest).

Please watch this page for announcements and more information.  You can also subscribe to the UKU Event Announcements Newsletter - see the link on the right hand side of this page.
