Why do we play the Vikings?


The Vikings have been an important part of the British sporting landscape for centuries and they have remained a key part of British culture and history for a long time. 

The first Vikings game was played on November 1, 1609, and was won by the Black Death against the Black Sheep of Scotland, which is often thought of as the first real Viking. 

A second match was played at the same stadium, in 1708, in which the Vikings lost the first of three matches to the Lancashire Lancashires, who won the first game 4-1. 

However, this second match in 1709 is credited as the game that saw the first Viking ship, which was built by a local contractor, be destroyed by the Lancastrians. 

When it was all said and done, the first Vikings match was held in the London Stock Exchange on December 4, 1714, at Wembley Stadium. 

That match ended in a 1-1 draw, with the Vikings scoring the first goal in the 2-1 win. 

At the time, the match was a huge success and, at the end of the match, the Vikings captain William Wallace gave a toast to the British public and then retired to his cabin in the woods. 

In a way, this was the first time the English were invited to watch a match in the UK, so this was a pretty big deal. 

Wembley Stadium was later renamed Wembley Stadium and the stadium was renamed the Stadium of the Living Arts. 

It was built as a replica of the original, and in the 1920s it was transformed into the famous Wembley Stadium, which hosted the Olympic Games in 1924. 

Nowadays, the stadium is home to the Premier League (LFC) and the Football League (League), as well as the Champions League (Champions League) and FIFA World Cup. 

For the last few years, the Stadium has also hosted the Champions Trophy, the Olympics, the Euro 2016, the Asian Cup, the Fifa Club World Cup, and the Women’s World Cup as well. 

While the stadium has changed significantly over the years, its history and the stories it has told have remained relevant and inspirational for the world to this day. 

As we approach the start of 2017, it seems that a new generation of football fans have grown up watching this fixture on television. 

What are your thoughts on the stadium’s future? 

Is it an ideal place for football fans to watch football, or are we too busy for a football match?
