Anyone interested in a Sunday morning match (pickup)? : LUSENET : Ajax USA: July Tour : One Thread

With so many respondents, maybe we organize a full-field pickup game if a local fan can get a field Sunday morning at around 10am. Afterwards, we can have lunch. This assumes kickoff times of 5pm and 7pm as my Metrostars contact has suggested to me.

Maybe we can combine a visit to Ajax training session (Saturday at 10:30 am, Rutgers University) with a pick-up game and then a trip to the pub. Sound good?

Count me in... we can have one team in the white and red kit and another in the black and white away kit! At least we'd all look great!

What is the tailgate area at Giants Stadium like? Is it grass, or asphalt? Depending on the eventual kick-off time for the Sunday game, I will probably be out there several hours in advance of the first game, and wouldn't mind an extremely casual kick-around. :-)

Hi, Just as long as we have an over 35 division.

I spoke to my friend the communications director for the MetroStars and he said he didn't know of a park close by for a game, but that people often have pickup games in the parking lot (paved). Whatever the case, count me in.

I would love to play. It will give us all a chance to get to know each other as well as have some fun.

Giants stadium is located on a huge area of grasslands formerly a swamp. The parking lot is huge, but is asphalt. Much tailgating, and pre match games are played here. If you want to play on a real field, you can check out the numerous fields along Route 17 south which is about 3 miles before you get to the stadium. They are your best bet for fields in my opinion.

A few Villa fans have expressed an interest in organizing a friendly between the two sets of supporters. I'll try to put a team together if it's mutually convenient.

Villa Supporters vs. Ajax Supporters, anyone ??

Contact me in person if it's feasible.

I'll bring my keeper stuff just in case we get a field.....
