We're having the Sunday game at the Ämtlerwiese Location

Time: 12:00 - 14:00

Meeting point: Ämtlerwiese, Kreis 4, Zürich.

There, is a large grass pitch and two large goals. The best shoes are trainers with good tread. Studs will make rather a mess of the field if everyone uses them, but it that's all you've got then bring them along.

Exact location can be found here (Corner of Saumstrasse & Bertastrasse):

Re: Zurich Sunday Football

Please bring along two shirts (take your pick from white, dark, or colour), so that we can balance out the teams for a more enjoyable game.

The weather forecast is for severe thunderstorms on Sunday, let's keep our fingers crossed though, get our kicks in before the Euros start.

Re: Zurich Sunday Football

I've still got a pair of boots and two water bottles that have been left behind after the game over the past couple of weeks - if you're missing something, let me know! I'm not around this weekend but should be back next Sunday.

Re: CANCELLED: Zurich Sunday Football

Hey Guys,

Some muppet's been doing the rain-dance, and the weather is not getting any better. I went out there a while ago and the pitch is quite soaked, so let's avoid scuffing it up.

I also wanted to see if there would be any interest in having this game on Saturday for those weekends when the weather outlook is poor for Sunday. We had a great opportunity to play yesterday, but would everyone be up for it in the future? I could check the weather and decide whether to set the game for Saturday/Sunday every Friday. Thoughts?

Cheers

Re: CANCELLED: Zurich Sunday Football

I do prefer to keep it on sundays as everyone can be free. it is sad it is running today, since summer is up i think the weather will be better in the future, hopefully.

thanks for the feedback and hope to see you guys next week !

Re: CANCELLED: Zurich Sunday Football

I don't mind setting the game on Saturday (much better than not playing at all due to the weather). Perhaps we should resurrect the idea of a midweek game too (some people have shown interest, so we might get enough players for it).

Re: CANCELLED: Zurich Sunday Football

I don't mind playing on Saturday either. We can still play on Sunday as usual if the weather is good. Otherwise, it does not hurt to set up the game on Saturday if the weather does not support us on Sunday.

Re: CANCELLED: Zurich Sunday Football

I prefer playing on a Sunday, as all the shops are closed, i.e. I use Saturday to do all my food/clothes shopping. Although, it would be better to play on Saturday than not at all (due to crap weather)

Re: CANCELLED: Zurich Sunday Football

agree with matty

indoor is difficult unless you have connections. you can contact schools but this needs to be done a semester in advance at least.

Otherwise I like the idea of a mid week play. If people miss the old schanzengraben game, we could make it happen again a weekday around 6/6.30 pm (or on the grass pitch if we are enough?) I will start a doodle soon to see what day is the best so start this.

Krash, I think it's more to do with the fact that we don't want to ruin the pitch (think of the massive crater in the middle of the pitch), rather than anyone being scared of rain. IMO rain is the perfect weather to play football in. My opinion may be biased, as I'm used to living in a place where it rains 360 days of the year though
