Re: Football Fifteen

last week,

someone mentionned the possibility to play on a grass field.
He apparently knew many places, e.g. in Sihlcity

is this dream coming true ?
(it would also be a chance to get more players and less injuries )

yep, that was me.
Sihlcity might be an option but those fields are full for the most part and they have league games on the weekends.

Here are some other options close to the city:

1. [47°21'22.90"N / 8°33'17.06"E] this is a school yard and they have small goals. [Seefeldstrasse & Alderstrasse]

2. [ 47°23'5.73"N / 8°32'50.57"E] public field. they have small goals [Culmanstrasse & Stolzesstrasse]

3. [ 47°21'43.33"N / 8°31'29.74"E] public field. they have small goals [Bederstrasse & Klopstockstrasse]


I am sure there are million of these around the city. I may not be around for too long so someone needs to lead this.

cheers,

Don't worry.. you were not the FIRST one to sign up after the 15 person player limit had been reached.

Welcome to the forum!
Check the thread every day, it could happen that a few people drop out on Sunday (depending on what they did the night before ) and you might get a shot to play.

Re: Football Fifteen

What is the standard like? Do you guys just have a kickabout or does it get a little competitive?

Thanks.

Re: Football Fifteen

Or if you kick it in, you man up and go in after it, and then play on for an hour in your freezing cold shorts

Re: Football Fifteen

Look, I've been coming to this event for a bit now. Let's not get too carried away with regulating 15 people coming. We've recently rarely had a group of more than 15 show up, and most of the time it's been a smaller-than-signed-up group of individuals.

It's too hard to monitor who actually signs up and then bails, let's just use common sense and make sure that there's no more than 15 signed up on Sunday morning (i.e. tell those oversubscribed not to bother coming). Overall, this 15 player rule has for the most been a non-issue, let's just use common sense, best not to get our panties in a twist over this.
