Looks good -- a couple ideas to consider:

* Change copyright date to 2009

* Make the 11 bold and possibly add a glow.

* Kern the "11" so the numbers are closer together; due to the font
  metrics they currently look unnaturally far apart.

The lion is still pretty busy -- did you want to consider moving the
design, so the lion appears more to one corner, and the logo and "11"
appear opposite his head?
