soccer is popular as never before: All of the neighbourhood associations of the city are already waiting lists. At the same time, the city is booming. More and more people want to live in Zurich. These Trends are the lack of space exacerbated United in the football fields, so strong that the city Council has already tested football pitches on roofs. Each year, 10 percent more juniors to come, according to forecasts.
The idea of football fields, on roofs, such as on the roof of the bus depots Hardau, has discarded the city, with one exception. She wants to but more realistic with the following – measures to counteract the shortage of places, such as a response to a move by the local councils Anjushka Early (SP) and Urs Egger (FDP, and former President of the FC Seefeld). The city wants to build New football fields, lighting of existing plants to expand, and on artificial turf conversion.
and More gender-separated dressing rooms
For nine new soccer fields, the Zurich sports Department already has concrete plans: Three in the area Eichrain-Frohbühl in Seebach, a further three fields in the vicinity of Seebach road. A further field is provided in the hönggerberg campus in the new sports centre in Oerlikon and in the Sonnau in Wollishofen. For five more fields, a location is searched. In addition, the plan is registered in the municipal Straightening up to 2040, a requirement of 33 hectares of land used for lawn, sport and equipment, in approximately the area of cat lake, which should be sufficient for the realization of approximately 25 additional fields.
in Addition, the sports Department plans, the facilities Juchhof, Hardhof in the Forrenweid, in Letzi and the army schürli with light equipment equip. This increases the capacity. Because on a lit place can also be in the autumn of up to 22 hours played.
Finally, it should be changed, the seats in the Letzi 1, in Hardhof and in the Fronwald on artificial turf, which can be claimed as a natural lawn.
In the quarters, the waiting lists are clubs currently in the girls teams very long. About half of the more than 50 urban club now has at least one female Team. The Boom in women's football has increased the demand for additional, gender-segregated dressing rooms: 100 new units are in Witikon, in Hardhof, the Allmend Brunau and in the hönggerberg.
How strong the women in the last few years, the cantonal statistics: From 2010 to 2016, the number of girls participating in football rates of youth and sports has, from 3000 to 5000 increased. In the city of Zurich kicked in 2017 already 1100 girls and 500 women. 6300 boys and 3100 men play in one of the city's football clubs.
the sports Department committed to the planning of new football infrastructure, says Urs Egger. But: "It remains to be seen how fast it goes." It was to be expected with Objections from local residents. Both the construction of new plants and the Expansion of existing soccer fields, for example, a lighting. And it remains questionable whether this will bring the expected relief. So would have kicked on many a field in the city, despite the lighting only to 21 clock – to the good neighbourhood's sake.
in fact, construction projects for new sports facilities have failed in recent years, for various reasons: for example, the sports facilities Juchhof II should be supplemented with multiple turf fields. Because you wanted to but then but for training purposes on livestock on neighboring urban farm, has not followed the Plan. In the first start-up football fields in the area Eichrain failed Frohbühl the fact that the municipal Council decided at the intended location for family gardens. Nevertheless, the sports Department continues to believe, to realize on the nearby replacement site, up to 2020, a sports complex. And last but not least, the three fields are at the Seebach road is only built if Private Land to the city to sell. The project is therefore foreseen until 2025 or later.
clubs are to bring to school facilities tschutten
short-term relief for the clubs, if they are likely to increasingly exercise on places of urban school systems. Because younger players, so the E - and F-juniors, with the largest increase is, on less large turf fields can practice, there is in principle potential, writes of the city Council. However, the turf quality was not that of football fields comparable to that of the systems less resilient. Often, a lighting and wardrobe capacity was lacking to be able to at the same time training in the halls and on the outdoor facilities.
Add to that the lack of space comes sites to the School: To many grass playing fields, a modular School-pavilions are already in place, in order to create more space for teaching – and it will always be more. According to today's practice, the school areas are not outside of the class times, mainly the population in the neighborhood as open space available, which is why you rent so far, more football clubs, the city Council.
soccer fields on top of each other
stacked The two municipal councils, an increase on the existing soccer fields would be Early and Egger thinking because of the strong competition for space in the city is also unconventional solutions Whether or not in the case of certain assets conceivable, you ask. From the perspective of sports promotion, and optimal use of the soil that is quite an interesting Option that responds to the city Council. However, the use of the lower sports field would be limited because of the limited height and the necessary bridge structures at the ceiling. On the field is likely to be no post in the ground. And: "According to the assessment of urban building and construction professionals, the construction of such stacked fields, however, would be static, complex, elaborate, and very expensive," said the councillor.
the idea of The football pitch on the roof of the bus depots Hardau also failed at the static. To tax it would have been, according to the sports Department to solve these problems. Generally speaking, moreover, by zoning regulations limited the height of buildings would not allow the Installation of the required, eight-Meter-high ball catch nets, so the city Council. Nevertheless, In the future, will be played in Zurich, on a roof of football. Although a high maintenance costs is to be expected, on the roof of the newly planned sports centre, Oerlikon is a turf field. Construction is expected to begin in the year 2024, commissioning, three years later. (Tages-Anzeiger)
