A football tour they said. In Bangkok they said. Next March. What do you say?
I know the date ‘end of March’ seems way off but the chat about our Easter 2012 tour is just dying down so I thought six months would be the right time to start the banter for next year’s tour!
About 20 of us headed down to Bangkok last year to play in the German All Stars Bangkok (http://www.gasbkk.com/?page_id=2237 – need VPN in China) 11 a-side open football tournament. Even if you are a new recruit to City you should already have heard some banter about the football and fun we had during that week. If not, ask the lads at the weekend.
We WILL be going again next year. Get on board. Saturday 30th March and Sunday 31st March are the important days.
Good Friday is 29th March, while Qing Ming Jie is Thursday 4th April. Hopefully you will have one or both of these holidays available.
Last year about 10 of us went a week early and had a lovely and quiet ‘rest and relaxation’ few days on the beaches of Koh Chang. Maybe this year because of the Chinese holiday the week after, we could plan a recovery session of a similar nature. Get your ideas in now and start the plans forming.
The 11 a-side tournament is open to all ages, while there is likely to be a Masters 7 a-side tournament for over 35’s at the same time. Let me know now if you are interested to join in one or the other or both??
Flights cost about ¥3,000 (less if indirect or booked now!), hotel was ¥200 a night and spending money less than a night out in Sanlitun, depending on your pleasures. So start saving and get involved.
FCFC New and old are more than welcome whether you are in the US, Indonesia, Canada, UK, Thailand, Sweden (you know who you are!)…etc..or in China of course. All you need to do is book the time off work and start saving. Right now I want to hear who is interested and some ideas for side trips before or after.
Let’s get this party started.
Your tour captain,
This week I’m going to try to organize some 7 a-side football or football tennis tournaments at the Canadian school. We basically can choose when we play so please RSVP with the times you would be interested. Majority wins. If you are game for any day/time then write that.
Tuesday: morning or afternoon
Wednesday: morning or afternoon
Thursday: morning or afternoon
Friday: morning or afternoon
Hi guys, Training tonight as usual 8pm-10pm Lido Pitch. Please be on time. Big matches coming up this week for both Palace and City! Don’t miss out! let’s make sure both teams stay top of their respective leagues! Traffic in the liangmaqiao area has been tough so make sure you give yourself plenty of time to reach the pitch. Pitch owners have confirmed the park/pitch is available tonight! cheers, Philippe
I have booked the Chaoyang stadium pitch this Sunday 12pm. The idea is to have another friendly before the league starts. This might take the form of an intrasquad game or possibly a friendly against another side, in any case all FCFC squad members are welcome.
City players and those not involved on Saturday: this is a must to be fit for the start of the season!
Please RSVP/confirm availability NOW!
