Matches at Totelos
If just training is not enough for you, you can also sign up for a match membership. For men, there are two leagues: the NZVB and the KNVB. In the NZVB, you play your games on Mondays, and for the KNVB Friday is matchday. The ladies teams play on Mondays, apart from Ladies 1. That’s because Ladies 1 play in the Eredivisie. That means they play on Friday, to compete with the best teams from the Netherlands. All the other teams play against teams from the Eindhoven region.
I’ve been a Totelos member for a year and a half now. Let me tell you how it all began. Moving here from Germany and leaving my old team I played with for the last 10 year was a huge step but I was sure I wanted to play football in Eindhoven. Yvonne, who works at the SSC and plays for Ladies 1, saw me wearing indoor football boots during a workout and invited me over for a training. I didn’t have much choice but to show up at the next training session. What can I say, next Monday I was a member of Totelos and Ladies 1.
What followed was a lot of fun on and off the pitch, with my first goals for Ladies 1 and drinks in the SSC canteen. Shortly after that I joined the membersweekend, which I was hesitant about at first as a non-Dutch speaker. But from the very first moment that was never a problem, and the weekend was a huge party where I got to know a lot of other Totelossers! Other highlights are the ‘sinterklaas-night’, where we got kicked out of ‘t Lempke, and ‘D-night’, the Carnaval tournament. Besides that, we also played good football, and we would have won the league if the season didn’t get cancelled. Nevertheless, we got promoted to the highest division, which means Totelos now offers indoor football at every level.
I can’t wait to make more memories on and off the pitch with this club. No matter where you’re from, no matter what language you speak, no matter what level you want to play football, come and join us and enjoy your Totelos experience.
Julia Ruckdeschel – Germany – Totelos Ladies 1
I have been playing as a goalkeeper for Totelos since 2016. It has been a fantastic experience so far playing indoor football here! The training sessions are good and different each week. On top of that, the trainers allow input from teams so they can work on improving on what’s necessary. The atmosphere within the trainings is always positive and I look forward to each one. As a student from South Africa, I never felt left out. Even in the beginning when I didn’t speak Dutch very well, I always felt welcome. The trainers have no problem communicating in English so that everyone understands the exercises.
Furthermore, other Totelossers as well as the board are extremely friendly and have always made me feel at home. Playing for Totelos has brought me many new friends and I thoroughly enjoy the camaraderie I experience when playing for my team. My experience with Totelos is extremely positive and I look forward to playing and training with them for as long as possible.

Training is never mandatory, but you are always welcome to join a session. Players from different teams train together during these sessions. Moreover, training sessions are often followed by drinks at the bar or in ‘t Lempke.
What’s the difference between Totelos and the Internal Competition?
If you are a Totelos member, you play in your teams against teams from different clubs, which are usually located in Eindhoven, so you’re never too far away from the centre.
Are you and your friends interested in playing against other TU/e teams? Then you may be interested in joining the Internal Competition. In the internal competition teams from the TU/e and Fontys play indoor football during the lunch breaks or on Wednesday evenings. There are 7 different leagues, so you and your team will have no trouble finding your level. The internal competition is organised by Totelos, but you do not have to be a Totelos member to participate in the Internal Competition. For more information go to www.totelos.nl/informatie
