The AFLC is proud to announce two performances for the Championship Game halftime show at Luwan Stadium this Saturday, January 14th. Returning to the Championship Game once again are the delightful and spirited Nighthawks cheerleaders, who have been supporting China’s oldest football team for five years now. After their routine, the Shanghai local band Wheelhouse will take the stage to perform their unofficial league anthem “Stand Up”. The AFLC and our performers are looking forward to hyping up the crowd with these two sure-to-be exciting acts showcasing the local talent from this city.
The Shanghai Nighthawks cheerleading team, the Shanghai Nightingales, were established back in November 2012, and are the official cheerleaders of the Shanghai Nighthawks. They are also the only exclusive cheerleading squad belonging to an AFLC team in all of China. This devoted group of women recruit new members every year through intense rounds of selections and meet weekly to practice their routines. The cheerleading team accompanies the Nighthawks at every home game and nearby away games to cheer for the players on the field and add to the overall competitive atmosphere on game day. The girls are really looking forward to performing in front of the large championship audience this weekend, and you can expect them to give their best performance to date.
Wheelhouse is a Shanghai-based rock band that was formed in 2015. The band is kicking off the new year with bang by playing a number of great gigs around the city starting with the half-time show at the AFLC Championship Game. They can’t wait to bring their high energy tunes to Luwan Stadium, and have a new song written especially for the event! It’s called “Stand Up” and you can find it on their website and social media accounts. Wheelhouse knows how to get your blood pumping and your juices flowing for what promises to be an awesome day. Nighthawks and Titans’ fans, it’s time to stand up and rock out!
The halftime show is scheduled to be at 3:00pm and last for 20 minutes. We hope all our fans and guests enjoy the show!
