About LVV Football Factory

Leiden based football club Football Factory was founded on May 23, 2008. The club’s founder, Pieter van Schie, became inspired and founded a socially oriented club in cooperation with Leiden University. Starting small but growing considerably over the past 15 years, our student soccer club now has 7 men’s teams and 2 women’s teams, in addition to the recently established The Hague branch where another 6 men’s teams and 1 women’s team are currently active.

Our aim is still to grow and we see an increase in membership every year. Through a fine cooperation with the Universitair Sportcentrum (USC) at the Einsteinweg at the Bio Science Park, LVV Football Factory will train and play on one of the most beautiful and newest sports complexes in Leiden. Currently we are located at the cozy and beautiful grounds of LVV Lugdunum due to construction taking place. Because the club is co-managed by students there is always an informal and friendly atmosphere, which we try to stimulate with fun activities. Students from all corners and layers of society find with us a cozy and especially sportive place to stay. You can form a team together with a student or study association and sign up as a team or you can join one of the current student teams.

Both national and international students can be found at Football Factory! Finally, there is also a chance to grow as a soccer player, most teams train 2x a week (first teams with multiple professional trainers) and have a game on Saturday. Besides soccer, sociability is crucial. Throughout the year activities are organized where everyone is welcome! Factorian drinks, the Oliebollentoernooi, parties and one of the best student soccer tournaments in the country, StuTo!
