The Barium Cup Challenge
Starting up for the 2011 campaign will be the Barium Cup between the Saints and the Lions. When first introduced to the idea by the Chancellor of Alliance FC it was an idea to good to pass up. While there is no geographic rivalry, the challenge of fierce competition was enough. "I have seen what has been happening over there in Nevada and have been very impressed. It was a natural to have our two great clubs come together and forge a derby that will only enhance our meetings." said the Saints owner. Barium is a chemical that explodes into a green firework. A perfect expression of what will happen when "Gateway green" meets up with "Alliance green" on the pitch. If you look close enough you'll see that both green's are displayed in the writing of the cup title.
