Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

Dear Citizens all over the world,

Forbidden City FC is sending you warm Christmas greetings and our best wishes for a wonderful New Year of health, happiness and fun.

2011 was a fantastic year for Forbidden City and without a doubt we are ruling Beijing’s amateur football scene on and off the pitch. In the summer both of our teams won their respective IFFC divisions which was celebrated in true City style. Team Forbidden City won 21 out of 22 league games to claim the Premier League title for the first time in a truly outstanding manner (see table here). At the same time, team Summer Palace went on an 11 game winning streak to qualify for the First Division championship play-off and then claimed the title with a convincing 3-0 win (see table here). Songs recall the deeds of bravery and the bards of Beijing have been praising these glorious achievement ever since (and will until the end of days).

In the first half of the 2011/12 season both teams continued to play magnificent football. Forbidden City is tied for first place in the Premier League with 8 wins and 1 draw while Summer Palace is in second place of the First Division with 8 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss. Off the pitch we have been spending quite a bit of time in Beijing’s nightlife and Teppanyaki scene and we are also often seen at Luga’s who is sponsoring us for the 4th season. A recent highlight was the FCFC Xmas party with over 60 people.

If you are in the region then mark the Easter weekend (7&8 April) in your calendar because that’s when we’ll roll up in Bangkok for a weekend of football.

All the best from us. Be safe. Peace.

Jochen
Chairman
Forbidden City FC
