Jan organized an 11-a-side game last Monday on The Float. The pool of players consisted of about 90% Giffa players. We had the pitch from 7-9pm and played full 90min split into two 45min halfes with a referee. It was a great experience that i recommend for everybody with a chance to play on that site. Very memorable to play in the middle of the financial district on a full size pitch. And it was tremendous value at sgd 28 each.
I run a team in the Midweek ESPZen amateur league and this Wednesday we will be playing one of our league fixtures on the floating platform – where the National Day Celebrations are held. The platform now has a football pitch on it and this will be the first ever match on a floating platform in the world – at night. Spectators are more than welcome and there is no admission fee. Kick off is at 7.20 pm. Hope to see some of you there – so you can have a good laugh at us – oh yeah we are called Agave Allstars (pronounced Agarvay) – after the plant used to make tequila!
As I have stated before, I am currently not keen on being involved in organizing 11-a-side games. First, the bulk of our participants are primarily interested in 5, 6, 7 or 8-a-side games. Secondly, organizing a one-off 11-a-side game takes too much effort.
However, I’m happy to lend whatever support I can to anyone using the forum to organize an 11-a-side match.
