It could hardly be more picturesque: Playing football in a region with more than ten ski resorts. Football pitches at the foot of the Alps, with mountain views on one side and the waters of Lake Constance on the other. A market square like you see in travel guides, surrounded by romantic buildings. The location? Dornbirn. Here, there are two venues at FC Dornbirn 1913 and at SC Graf Hatlerdorf.
