If you’re looking to watch some local sporting action, then be sure to mark these events in your diary!

September 26: Football – FC Servette v Lausanne, Stade de Genève, 7.45pm.

FC Servette are currently 10th in the league after 8 matches and have only 2 points. They desperately require a result against their local rivals Lausanne.

They play at Stade de Geneve which is in La Praille, Lancy and seats around 30,000 Fans. It was built in 2003 at a cost of over 200 million CHF.

About the Author

Originally from the UK, I have a legal background. I have been in the Geneva area since 2005 and love the mountains, the lake and the quality of life here. The Winter snow sports are fantastic and the Summer season is full of festivals, outdoor sports, picnics and barbecues. I have met some great people here from all of the world. Geneva is a cosmopolitan city with lots of cultural events and good restaurants and bars and I hope that through Biskotti I can share a few hidden places I have discovered…
