So, i’m from London, so i should know a bit about the place really shouldnt I!?  This is one of a number of posts where i’ll try to give you all some valuable info about London town.  On this occasion, its sport in London.  Enjoy!

Fancy seeing a bit of sporting action whilst in London, capital of the country that did create the beautiful game … football. The version thats actually played with your feet.  Here are just a few of the pro teams that ply their trade in the nation’s capital.  All websites should link to fixture lists, locations and ticketing.  Feel free to send me an email if you have any questions.  Enjoy the game!

P.S. We’re also hosting a little thing called the Olympics in 2012, probably worth checking out if you’re around.
