Football in Geneva

Hello everyone,

Recently moved to Geneva from London and I've been trying to find local football leagues or pick-up games without much luck. I'd appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction because I'm itching to play!

I too just moved to Geneva and would like to find a pick up game. My brother-in-law is here too and would enjoy finding folks to play games (preferrably on grass) with.

Re: Football in Geneva

Just found this thread. I am mad for a game of friendly footie. My sat league days are well behind me now but would be happy with anything from a kickabout in the park, to organised 5 a side or even 11-a-side on asto or grass.

Let me know if any of you guys found anything.

Cheers
Tim

Re: Football in Geneva

Hi.

I also want to play football. I was searching for a football team but it turned out that you have to speak French and I can only speak English. Please write if you find something.

Re: Football in Geneva

There are seniors and veterans leagues in the Canton of Vaud, at any rate. Probably have them in Geneva as well, but I don't know anything about that. Clubs with squads for lads of a certain age fairly near Geneva would include Terre Sainte, Crans, Gland and Genolier. French would certainly help, but these clubs are fairly accustomed to we who are yet to get a handle on the language...particularly if you have/had talented feet. This site may be of help to get you started: http://www.football.ch/acvf/fr/start.aspx

Low key (very few with shin protection, many with bellies) pick up takes place on the excellent all weather pitch at the Colovray (Nyon, across from UEFA) Sunday mornings (10 am) and Tues-Thurs midday (12:30). French, English, Portuguese, Spanish and a few other things are bantered about, but English is pretty common.

Good luck.

Re: Football in Geneva

Thank you. Nyon is 30 km away from Geneva. I was hoping for something closer. However, if I cannot find anything I will have to come at least on Sundays .

Re: Football in Geneva

Haven't played in a while but I would try going to places like the stadiums/sport centres of Bout-du-monde (near carouge and champel), Varembé (not too far from the UN) and Vernier (up the road from Ikea) on a Sunday, as a starting point.
