Football/ Soccer in Basel

Hi all,

I am moving to Basel at the end of september and am a keen football player, could anyone please give me directions or advice on where i could find a club.

Looking for both competitive and sociable sessions. I have played at country level but looking for any reasonable standard of play.

Many thanks for your time.

Gary

Re: Football/ Soccer in Basel

There's a game every Wednesday evening on the soccer pitches in St Jakob for expats and english-speaking people.

Most of the guys there generally work for Novatis or some of the other popular firms.. I will give you the email address of one of the guys when I check my mail shortly.

I played about 3/4 times and really enjoyed it, but am back in the UK now unfortunately.

can you arrange stuff? means suggest a date, time, place and arrange that with basel players, post it in here so that i can pass the info on?

we have an astroturfed, fenced-in, 5-a-side-pitch (size of an handball field) downtown zurich. we play it mostly on sundays and our favourite day is sunday, 12.30-2.30.

id say we should not have more than 10 players, 5 subs. but this we'll sort out then.

further we have pub nearby where you can shed some tears of defeat into your pints after

what is basel looking like pitch-wise etc.?

looking forward to it!

cool, sounds good. the prob is, i/we have to rely on "your" support organizing this a bit as we dont have much contacts to basel not to speak about fon numbers etc. so best would be if you/a volunteer can at the next game ask around whos in etc. and drop infos here or simply say its something going on, that all basel players can give feedback on the forum and then i gonna set up an RVSP etc... subba!
