INSEAD Football Club

Welcome to INSEAD Football Club

The purpose of this website is to inform future, current and alumni students about the latest news and information on the football club.

With two MBA intakes overlapping, each class has the opportunity to play with the previous and following intake classes.  The IFC club’s fixtures typically include MBA football tournaments in Europe and the US, home and away friendlies with other top European MBA programs, intra-squad December vs. July class matches, home friendlies vs. Executive MBA, YMP, AMP, and specialty programs, and finally the student vs. faculty match.

Home matches are played on a pitch located next to the main INSEAD campus in Fontainebleau, France.  While there are no fixed seats, fans are invited to watch from the sidelines.


Practice Times & Info

Practices are held twice per week on the football pitches next to the INSEAD campus.  The current practice schedule are below.  Please note that practices / trainings are optional but well-attended by MBA students.

The location of both pitches is a 2-minute walk from the INSEAD campus.  As you turn off the N7 on to Route de l’Ermitage, the INSEAD campus will be on your right hand side.  The football pitches are located at the end of this street on the left hand side, just before the road turns right to circle the INSEAD campus.  Walk through the gate, take a right at the first set of tennis courst and the pitches are straight ahead.

  • Tuesday: 20:00 to 21:00 (F3 gravel pitch)

Executive Education

INSEAD has a host of Executive education programs regularly on campus.  The IFC club invites all programs to contact their program coordinator to schedule matches with the IFC MBA team.  We regularly play friendly matches with the Young Manager’s Program, Advanced Management Program, Executive MBA Program, International Marketing Program and various other private programs hosted by individual companies.

These matches are friendly and usually occur on Tuesday evenings.  If you are planning to be here for one of the programs, please pack hard ground football boots.  The IFC team will provide the footballs, pitch and coloured bibs for use.
