Turf Soccer

My son just got back playing in A group one game away from going to the top Swiss football league - they been invited to play game on Turf surface without explicit information - needless to say neither of the team members ever played on such surface and had proper shoes for it.

Choice they got was to give up a game or play on regular shoes . Outcome as expected - lost 2:0

Someone said Sport is fair game - doesn't seem like this time around.

it's not a big drame , it's learning curve as they are U19 however must feel not right to be cheated from the game.

Re: Turf Soccer

That sucks. Sorry to hear that, your son must be devastated.

Just out of curiosity I googled turf Fussballschuhe and got some pretty clear hints. Shoes even have industry standards : TF designated. Decathlonís got some.

Re: Turf Soccer

yes, I did that too

just one would not expect to play on that surface since standard grass is available however it was "deemed" it's too wet and could be damaged ( what the grass is for if not 1st Team three games away from season end?) and done on the artificial surface - none of the FC team had shoes for it - while all from other team had .


sometimes it's the referee that wins the games it seems or clubs and not players.

He got over it already - 20km run . 30km bike , 4 long showers and 2m3 water later

Re: Turf Soccer

I'm a bit surprised that your son is U19 and hasn't been prepared for playing on turf. That seems to be almost the norm around where I live. Must be the extreme summer rain showers in these parts.

Having said that, it doesn't sound like your son's team was cheated rather the coach should shoulder full responsibility for the eff up.
