Looking for a sports field in Zürich

Hiya everyone,

I'm looking for a happy home in the shape of a grass field for our flag football team to play on as an alternative to the field we currently use. Sunday afternoons every two weeks, needs to be about 100 yards long, 40 yards wide, flat, natural grass and not accessed by canines to deposit their lunch on.

If anyone has an inside scoop to a field as close as possible to the center of Zürich, please let me know. I'm not really looking for anyone telling me where the fields are, I can see that on a map. The Sportamt in Zürich take veritable pleasure in telling one that you haven't got a hope in hell of getting a field, even if most of their fields are clearly empty on Sunday afternoons. The power of bureaucracy stifles enthusiasm here!

Thanks for your feedback

Re: Looking for a sports field in Zürich

Do any of the players work for ZKB?

If so - they have a field behind their sports club - Obererheuelsteig, Zurich

Not sure if that is of any help

Hi Assasin,

There is a really nice grass field at Morgental. Once I'll get the picture I'll post it.

Re: Looking for a sports field in Zürich

Do you have players that are affiliated with ETH or UZH? They might get their hands on a grass field via "Akademischer Sportverband Zürich".

Hi Sam,
My club is looking for a pitch this winter. Do you have anymore info about Morgental?

Thank you
