"FC Zurich at School"
Since Tuesday, 23 October 2012, FC Zurich has been visiting classes in different schools in the city of Zurich.
Riedhof in Zurich Hoengg, a district located in the northern parts of the city, was the first school to be visited by Thomas Lutz (Head Social Projects FC Zurich). The boys and girls spent the first lesson listening to the former teacher's stories and got to know a little more about FC Zurich. The kids then got active themselves: They enjoyed a special football practice that had been prepared by FC Zurich U10 coach Stefan Gasser. Among the visitors was also Loris Benito: the FC Zurich defender was very happy to spend some time with the third graders – he joined their football practice and was busy writing autographs.
As a small gift for their participation on this day, the kids were given key chains, an FC Zurich flag and a poster of FC Zurich's squad, which they can put on the wall in their class room.
