Two games in lower leagues in Switzerland this week. Wednesday 16 October 2019 2 liga international gruppe 4 FC Rotkreuz 1 Mendrisio 3 Admisson 10 Swiss francs Programme none Beer 5 Swiss francs bottle at entrance
Ground is just over 5 minutes walk from Rotkreuz station.
I approached the ground which had a building containing changing rooms and an upstairs tea bar. However I then noticed where entering a caged ground just behind and music was blaring out. This was a shock and was an artificial pitch with no stands and just two steps up along one touchline. At times I just stood along the touchline surprisingly it was a high standard game between first and second in the league with lots of action and red and yellow cards and some cracking goals. The visitors took their chances well to end up the victors.
Saturday 19th October 2019 FC Wohlen 2 Zug 94 0 1 Liga Classic Group 2 Admission 10 Swiss Francs stand 20 to sit Programme free beer 5 Swiss Francs
The ground is approximately 15 mins walk from Wohlen station .
A decent set up part of a sports complex with a bar and a hot dog stand outside also a inside cafeteria too offering meals.
There was a main stand and then hard standing with a couple of steps up around the railed off pitch.
There was a section of around 12 hard core home fans trying their best to rally their team.
I expected a high scoring game due to Zug being bottom of the game but it wasn't to be and it was a fairly dull first half and lots of misplaced placed passes.
Around the hour mark a home goal went in and then it was case of damage limitation by the visitors although they did concede ahain.
A pleasant game in decent weather.
