First win of the season for Servette FC

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

In May this year, 20,055 spectators watched Servette FC beat Lausanne FC at Stade de Geneve and secure first place in the Swiss Challenge League, with two games remaining. With their championship victory, they advanced to the highest league in Switzerland, the Swiss Super League.

Last Sunday, after finishing their first two games with a draw, Servette won their first League game of the season.

A modest 6,000 supporters made their way to Stade de Genève to see their team play against visiting FC Luzern. After a scoreless first period, Miroslav Stevanovi scored the first goal of the game giving Servette a 1-0 lead. There were more chances for the home team in the second half, but in the end, they held their scoreline to earn their first win of the season.

Servette FC has five points after three games and are third place overall. The team’s next game will be away on August 10 against FC Basel, currently second in the league (see here for the full schedule for upcoming games).

A new beginning

The advancement of Servette FC to the Super League is a long-awaited event for a league that had stagnated over the past few years. With the two latest additions to Servette, French player Timothé Cognat and well-respected scout Gérard Bonneau, they are also adding some stardom to the league.

Servette FC are now financially stable and healthier thanks to the involvement of the Rolex Foundation, and the future looks bright for the club. Some 10 years of financial difficulties are finally behind them. How far can Bonneau and Cognat take the team? We will find out on May 21 next year when the last round of Super League games take place.

“You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.” – Wayne Gretzky

Perhaps the best ice hockey player of all time, Wayne Gretzky, clearly knew what he was talking about. Following my heart and seizing opportunities is something that I always strive for.

As an altruist, what drives me most at work is to be a part of a dynamic team and collaborate to reach a collective success. I genuinely care for colleagues and clients and love to build and nurture good relationships.

Whether creating impactful international high profile events; coordinating across my organization while providing quality administrative support; or providing personalized 5-star WOW-moments within the hospitality industry, the customer is always my key focus.

How?

By being proactive and understanding and anticipating what customers want before they do. By taking initiatives, being creative and having a solution minded approach with a "can-do attitude".

I also love adding sparkles to my life and enjoy a "fika" (Swedish term for a casual social meeting over coffee and a pastry) while talking about ice hockey, ice hockey and ice hockey.

Another great man, Muhammed Ali, also said it well and this is one of my favorite mottos.

“Impossible is Nothing”
