Meeting Point: Schanzengraben School Yard

RSVP Please Note!

12 places only for next Sunday.

This time we're placing a limit on the number of RSVPs. So far we are still having a lot more people turn up than say they are coming and this is severely interfering with the quality and duration of the games we're getting.

Rotating teams is OK, but when 20 people arrive (in a higgeldy-piggeldy fashion, too 13.00 is 13.00!), get 10 minutes play followed by 20 minutes waiting, the fun significantly decreases.

So perhaps now is the time to say 'if you're not on the list, you can't play'.

It's a measure I have not really wanted to impose, but the success of our little game is a problem which needs addressing. I greatly enjoy the social element and seeing so many faces turn up, but we can always arrange a dedicated and separate 'Beers and fries at Paddy Reillys / El Lokal' social event for Sundays. Isn't it BBQ season, now, too?

Of course there'll be regulars who'll not see this message until the list is closed and this in turn will cause some resentment, but I don't see another way - short of declaring dedicated team lists, which is contrary to the spirit of the game we play - of getting a real game of football. Unless someone, somewhere has a relatively downtown, large, free venue where we could play on a Sunday afternoon..?

I'm looking forward to the thread-storm following this post!

*Please* check here on the day in case we're rained-off or we don't have the numbers to play.

Here's the map link

[There may be others on the pitch when we arrive and if they're kids from the school, we'll have to bribe them or something ( ). The Kids have every right to kick us off - it's their pitch - so please accept we may have to share our game with them. They're usually good lads but the Janitor has his eye on the area and has asked us to respect their play space.]

Thank You!

Re: Sunday Afternoon Five-a-Side Football, Zurich

Game was good, worked out well...11 people, 5 aside and 1 sub.

As a final aside, it worked well with people turning up on time. The latest was 1:05, and not everyone who signed up, showed up...if we had been limited to the 12 sign up's I doubt we would have had a reasonable game.
