Opening games provisionally arranged.

Soccer Park in Antibes, Nice.Delighted to say that a venue just outside Nice is going to host us for at least one game (possibly two).

Soccer Park in Antibes (just South West of Nice) is the venue. It's a fair distance away from Nice centre (around 19km), but we could arrange transport.

Thanks to Thierry Martini (from our hotel) and Loic Viallon (from Soccer Park) for arranging.
