Eindhoven Student Football Association Pusphaira ([poesfajra]) is one of the largest student sports associations of the Student Sports Center of Eindhoven University of Technology. The association was founded in 1965 and will celebrate its 55th anniversary in the autumn of 2020, or the eleventh anniversary! This is celebrated by 11 activities spread over 55 days, check out our lustrum page.
The name Pusphaira comes from ancient Greek; pus means foot and spheres means ball.
Pusphaira plays football at different levels: there is the selection (P1 and P2) for those who give their lives for the sporting achievements of the association, and there are lower teams, who mainly play football with fun. There are also three women’s teams of different levels.
Matches and Sundays
The competition starts in early September and ends in April or May. The cup competitions will start in August. The competition matches are played on Sundays. Home games are played at Sportpark de Hondsheuvel. All teams play competition under the auspices of the KNVB. The canteen stays open until 7pm on Sundays, by the end of the evening the disco ball is often lit and many drinking games are played. The bar committee has control over the music.
