Is GVC the right football club for me?


About to start your studies at Wageningen University? Or are you studying in Wageningen for some time already, but do you feel it is time to start playing matches with fellow students in the weekend?

If you are a student, PhD Candidate (sandwich-construction, not employee of the WUR) or recently graduated student from Wageningen University (as long as you are registered at GVC before you graduate), you are very welcome to join GVC. You can do so any period of the year, so even halfway or at the end of the season.

We have teams at various levels, from the competitive standard 4th class to the recreational reserve 6th class – so unless you are Messi, we have the appropriate level for you. Our teams consist of a mix of Dutch and international players. Three teams play their matches on Saturday afternoon, one team plays on Sunday (morning/early afternoon).

If you are doubting, then please join us at the training sessions, to see if you like it. We practice at the university sportscentre De Bongerd.

Men: Tuesday and Wednesday from 20.30h to 22:00h. At Tuesday we play on real grass (field D), at Thursday we practice at the artificial field (which is absolutely brilliant to play football on!).

Women: Wednesday from 19.30 to 21h. Grass pitch (field D).

Dressing room available! If you do not know where to go, please ask at the reception of the Bongerd.

Please note: Our coach speaks English, Dutch and Spanish, and now and then curses in Polish, German and Italian, so language should not be a problem at all.
