FC Thun, Switzlerland trip part 2 > FC Thun vs. Ajax and FC Thun meeting

First time at a Champion's League Match! And VIP Champion's Lounge seats, no less!

FC Thun is a small club, from a very small city in Switzerland. Thun, is about 30min. from Bern, and has a population of appox. 41,800. Since qualifying for Champion's League FC Thun has played all "home" games in Bern at the new Stade de Suisse.

The match vs. Ajax on 02 November, 2005 was a great compeition and while defeated in the end, Thun played a strong game with lots of amazingly close shots on goal.

The full capacity crowd was incredible too... approx 31,000 fans, all in red and white. Lots of hummel replica jerseys nice to see too!

The Champion's League Lounge was incredible. Almost 100 tables, buffet, dessert bar, open bar...

FC Thun Sportchef Werner Gerber invited us the day after the match to come visit the FC Thun Club and meet with the team (above pic,left. Thanks Mr. Gerber!). We had a great opportunity to discuss the curernt boots and new 2006 boots with the individual members and trainers.

This is the FC Thun home stadium. I'm not sure the official capacity, but if I had to guess I'd say somewhere around 300. Amazing view and location between the mountains and lake, but you can see why they moved the home games to the stadium in Bern!

I know its really been a while since I've posted new content, but its really not for the lack of great things happening. Actually, things have incredibly busy and lots of the great things I have been been happy to have been a part of (and have been happy to share here)are now really starting to take off!

2 weeks ago, I had the amazing opportunity to visit Switzerland along with our Product Development Manager, Michael Pao to check out FC Thun in a Champion's League match vs. Ajax Amsterdam in Bern.

hummel is the proud sponsor of FC Thun, and their story of the amazing road to the Champion's League has been amazing.

FC Thun is a very small club in Switzerland, and has managed some great wins to get them into the series.

Home and away official hummel FC Thun kits.

Bern is a wonderful, small Swiss city with lots of great history and a special Euro charm. This is the Zyglogge, the original bern City gate, dating back to around 1191 when the city was founded. The current population is 127,188.

Certainly the "Swiss Riche" is present in Bern. Some great classic Daimler I think...nice. makes me miss my '69 Mercedes I left in Canada when I moved to Denmark.

Space Invaders.

Cement and rebar LeCorbusier chair along one of the old shopping streets in Bern. Even the outdoor public furniture has class in Switzerland.

Bar Drei Eiogensossen. 15 Rathaugasse in the old city part of town. A really small bar, but with great atmosphere. check it our for a good vibe, swiss beer on tap, and an amazing vintage cash register.

This poster was up at Drei bar and started our search for the artist. Amazing graphics and design! We made it our mission to find the artist and catch up with him/her (?) and buy one of these... stay tuned for the amazing result of our search coming up in an upcoming post!
