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!

Cheers,

Friendly Match this Sunday

Hello Citizens,

Thanks to Barrie for taking a gruesome training session last night and for the 18 people who showed up, including a few new faces.

This weekend we have organised a friendly pre-season match versus a Chinese team. This Sunday, 12 pm kick of Lido Si’de Gongyuan (where we train). The game kicks off at 12 so be there for 11:30 for a match warm-up.

The match is all inclusive and is a good opportunity for the new players to take part so we can see you in match conditions – and for existing players to gain match fitness. Bring your own shinpads and a yellow training top/kit. The cost will be around ¥50 depending on numbers.

We could also do with a ref, so if someone is injured (already!) and wants to take the ref’s role, please let me know!

Please let me know your availability by Friday afternoon.

Get involved!

7-aside all-day Tournament Saturday August 13th

Hello Lads,

Some of you may have heard that a select Forbidden City FC team is taking part in the BTV Cup, a summer competition for the various league winners in Beijing.  Their first group game is on Saturday 13th August at 9am.  Support is welcome.  Depending how City progress, later games will be shown live on BTV.

But that doesn’t mean the rest of us can’t have fun!

We are entering at least one team (depending on response) in a friendly 7 a-side all day tournament played on real grass (a rarity in Beijing!) at Dulwich School in Shunyi, Saturday August 13th.  This should be a fun day out with a number of games against around six other Beijing teams with a BBQ and cold beers available throughout the day.

– Fun day with football and BBQ.
– Grass pitches at Dulwich College
– All day tournament, 13th August 11am-4pm
– Competitive teams.
– All players old and new encouraged to take part.
– Cost less than ¥100 per person.
Read more info below.

Please let me know YES/NO. Do it now.

Get involved.

Thanks,
Pikey
