Football Factory Zo3
Football Factory 3 is a team composed of students and alumni of Leiden University College. Although an LUC male football team existed before the season 2017/18, this team joined forces in the summer of 2017 with the BA International Studies (BAIS) football team to form HVV Football Factory. All but ending their Haagse rivalry with BAIS, they continue to compete in the yearly derby of The Hague, a must-see for any self-respecting football fan. In the season 2018/19, Football Factory 3 plays in the 5th class of Dutch league football. The players are coached by Tom Freijsen and William Goedbloed.
Also competing in the 5th division, our third team (HVV Zo4) consists of a mix of students from all the universities located in and around The Hague. Hence, students from Leiden University, Haagse Hogeschool, InHolland and others are all welcome to join! Our team of 21 boasts over 10 different nationalities, much like the clubs competing in the European top flight! Players are coached and captained by Sam Dallow and Mark Voskamp.
