01.06.2014 to 28.11.2014 12:30 to 14:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
City/Town: Zürich
Event Type: Sports
Meeting Point: Zurich, Hardof tram station

What: Friendly Football
Who: Anybody who loves the beautiful game.
Where: Football fields near Hardof tram station
Meeting Point: https://goo.gl/maps/eBXZL
When: 12:30 pm to 2 or 3 pm

The event does depend on weather. We play on turf, so cleats/studs are encouraged. Please turn up early so that we can get a place to play. Also, there are always more people at the field, so even if we don't have enough players, we can find some there.

Here is a map to the exact field. You don't need to follow the path on the map. Just walk towards the field along the tracks after getting down at the tram station. You should see a restaurant and tennis courts along the way. This field is the first one after the tennis courts.

Ah yes the turkish guys - I remember playing with them. Being shouted instructions in a language I did not understand for an hour so and having to write an application letter in order to get a pass or assist...good times.

Re: Zürich Sunday Football

I want to get involved, is this still active? Is it worth making a meetup.com group for these recurring events so it's easy to tell if people are still attending? Or am I missing how events work on this site?

Re: Zürich Sunday Football

We usually set up a recurring event here. the Sunday football is a bit on the hold due to the cold but I think it should be starting soon.

Re: Zürich Sunday Football

I would be up for transferring this to a Doodle or similar solution too - it helps to see if people will be there etc. beforehand and perhaps if we get a regular group, a whatsapp or e-mail thread.

Ps. The weather is already beginning to look pretty sweet, here's to hoping we can start soon

I would love to do that if that happens. People come in droves one day and no one the next time. One of the main reasons we shifted to the other location, because if no one came, we would still get players to start playing.

We could start this off again and depending on the number signing up, we shift locations Difficult but practical.

Re: Zürich Sunday Football

Hey guys, I'm also very interested in playing some matches with you. I live really close to the hardof pitches, so it's the perfect location for me. Let's make it happen. Is it necessary to book the pitches or we can head there and start playing?

We can book the pitches but those are the full sized 11 player ones. The smaller one we play at is not bookable. First come, first served. So, we just head there and start playing.

Re: Zürich Sunday Football

Ok, if a lot of people are interested, let't get this going. We can go a bit early to the pitches (say around 11 am?) and get in an hour or so before other people start turning up.

Doodle poll here - http://doodle.com/uxmsfnmhh7kavvkx

We shall only play if 8 people sign up, anything less is too less.

Look forward to some football action again

I am also back in the game. We had a bit enough to play with the usual turkish guys and want to come back for some easy laid-back sunday football.

Agree the weather is sweet *cue heavy rain on Sunday!*

Have updated the Doodle - hopefully my knee holds up post-recovery

Regards,

Re: Zürich Sunday Football

I only see 3 people signed up as of now (incl me). I can bring in one friend but even then, it is not enough to make a game/team.

Hopefully, the numbers pick up.

Do you all mind if I cross-post to glocals? I used to play football with a group there regularly.

Re: Zürich Sunday Football

How many do we need as a minimum? 8 with a rush goalkeeper?

Yea, you have seen the size of the field. Any less and we will not be able to play well.

We currently have 5. Not much of a response from glocals weirdly.

Re: Zürich Sunday Football

Ok, it looks like we won't make 8. So, I will be going there around 1230 so that the other guys (turkish or otherwise) will also be there to make up a team for playing.

I hope some of you come over tomorrow.

It looks like next week we will have a full game to ourselves
