*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zurich
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Kinkelstrasse Ground

This weekend we're going to try have the Sunday game at the new Kinkelstrasse Location.

Time: 12:00 - 14:00

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.

Getting there: Kinkelstrasse 36, Zürich.
Tram: You can reach this location by catching a tram to Schaffhauserplatz and walking up Riedlistrasse (you'll eventually see it on the right).
Bus: Optimally you can catch Bus 33/34 and get off at Scheuchzerstrasse, which is directly opposite the field.

Exact location can be found here:

RULES:
* Please sign as 'yes' or 'no'. 'Maybe' only after 22 people have signed up.
* Check the thread for a game on/game off notice
* Play nice - it's FUN, not the World Cup final.
* The time is 12:00 - 14:00
* New players and women are very welcome (unless we've reached the player limit)
* All skill levels are represented, ranging from comically inept to Spanish
* It's free


PLAYER LIMIT 22
AFTER 22 people have signed up then go ahead and sign up as 'Maybe', so that we have an orderly waiting list.

If you have signed up as 'Yes':
Please show up on Sunday or update your status well in advance.

If you are signed up on the 'Maybe' waiting list:
Keep checking through till Sunday morning to see if anybody has dropped out.

Please sign up ASAP and enjoy the fun. Men and women, beginners and experienced players are welcome. It's a friendly football game for all.
RSVP'd Yes: 10 (10 members and No guests) RSVP'd Maybe: 1 (1 members and No guests)
  • superoca - Sorry guys, I just found out that I have to travel tomorrow evening so I'm going to be a Maybe now. Thank you though.
RSVP'd No: 5
RSVP sign-ups for this event are now closed.

Re: Zurich Sunday Football (NEW LOCATION)

We're going to give the new Kinkelstrasse location a try this weekend, it's a nice ground that's been empty the last 2 weeks I've walked by it. I've also been told that it's a public field (by some of our regulars who've played there and the geriatrics I see using the running track around the field). It's a great location and a nice field, so let's give it a go and if everything works out we can start to play here regularly.

On another note, there's a risk of thunderstorms this weekend (risk subsiding for Sunday though), if we do have lightning on Sunday morning the game will be called off.

As usual please bring along two shirts (one white/dark and one bright coloured). Also, if anyone was kind of enough to pick up one of my shin-guards after last Sunday's game please do bring it along.

Re: Zurich Sunday Football (NEW LOCATION)

Right, I've received word that some of our regulars have formed a separate team (to play in a league) and decided to hold a separate practice at the old location on Sunday at the same time. So we might not have sufficient players for Sunday's game.

Perhaps we could move back to the Paradeplatz location for a smaller 5-a-side game. Please check this board for updates tomorrow evening.

Re: Zurich Sunday Football (NEW LOCATION)

Is that the hard pitch in Paradeplatz? Actually I would prefer playing on grass. We can make the pitch smaller there if we do not have enough people, can't we?

I agree (in fact, I wouldn't be able to play in the hard pitch)

Re: Zurich Sunday Football (NEW LOCATION)

Ok done, we'll stay on the grass field. Bring your purses and handbags to make smaller goals, because they only have large ones

Re: CANCELLED Zurich Sunday Football

Sorry Guys a couple of people pulled out this morning, and the pitch is completely water clogged. I'll try to organise a mid-week game here since the weather should be good and we'll have the independence day holidays.

UPDATE: If you still want to play football, there's a game on at the Ämlerwiese location. Given the weather please send a message to Mexpat to confirm.

Re: CANCELLED Zurich Sunday Football

Could anyone create an event for the game today for us? I would like to do so but I do not have a ball and do not know whether the new place is free today or not.
