17.05.2012 14:00 to 16:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zürich
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Ämtlerwiese

Thursday is Ascension Day - and there's probably no better way to celebrate than to have a kickabout at the Ämtlerwiese on the grass. Since the goals are moveable, we can adapt to how many players come along (with a maximum of 22, provided someone brings a flipchart for team tactics).

The lowdown:
  • What? A fun, friendly game of football.
  • When? This Thursday, 17th of May, 14:00-16:00.
  • Who? Anyone of any gender, transgender, age, shoe size, or skill level.
  • Where? The Ämtlerwiese, Zürich.
  • How do I get there? The nearest tram and bus stops are Lochergut and Bertastrasse - if you're using SBB.ch to plan your journey, setting your destination to Ämtlerstrasse 92 will take you to where you need to go, the way into the pitch is through the entrace to the school opposite.
  • What are my basic duties as a human here? Please show up. If you've signed up but can't make it, no problem - just let us know well in advance so someone else can play.
  • Can I wear orange boots? If you absolutely must.
  • Anything else? If you have one, bring a ball, and if you can, bring both a dark top and a light top, so we can divide easily into teams.
The player limit is 22 - once this has been reached, please sign up as a Maybe, which will put you in the queue to play in the event that someone drops out.
RSVP'd Yes: 19 (15 members and 4 guests) RSVP'd Maybe: 1 (1 members and No guests) RSVP'd No: 1
  • c123 - Away for a few days.
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Football? And I thought you were such an intellectual, Monomix.

Re: Zürich Thursday Afternoon Football

Just to confirm, will this be played at 14:00-16:00 instead of Sunday's traditional 12:00 kick-off?
(I do prefer the late start, at 14:00, for this Thursday)

Re: Zürich Thursday Afternoon Football

Peaceful- "Could someone tell me whether we play on grass or some concrete court?"

There's a choice of both, but we will likely be playing on the grass with 22

peaceful + 1 guest - My friend also would like to join. Could I put him as a guest?
For now, we're already at the 22-player limit - keep an eye out to see if anyone cancels, but if no-one does, then he'll have to sit it out I'm afraid.

Can I wear orange boots? If you absolutely must.

What's wrong with orange boots??? (in my defense, those were the cheapest ones that fitted...)

Sorry, that's just me dragging up my schoolday prejudices. Nothing wrong with them at all - just note that you'll be expected to provide at least one game-changing moment of sublime skill (per boot).

Are these the ones left behind last Sunday? Or was there a second pair left behind yesterday?

For the pair left behind last Sunday, someone has them, but I'm not 100% sure what their forum name is. Rpmgabell, maybe.
