If you live in Riga, but can’t bear to retire your boots, you can train with Riga United, whose men's team plays in the Latvian 2nd division and women's team plays in the Latvian Premier League. The men's and women's squads currently boast a roster of over 20 different nationalities. Needless to say, not everyone will be invited to join the squad for scheduled fixtures, but you can train with the team to keep in shape, to hone your football skills and, hopefully, to make new friends. From March 30, Riga United trains every Monday, Tuesday and Thursday on the artificial 3G turf of School 49 (Valdemāra 65), but certain sessions are reserved for League 2 players. All men and women are welcome on Mondays and non-members must pay €5 to cover costs for the pitch. Children are also welcome to join the club's international youth academy; the first multinational English-language kids' football academy in the Baltics. For more information, including the team’s upcoming League 2 and Premier league home fixtures (which are free-of-charge to watch) contact Graham (Men's team: (+371) 22 08 46 13); Justin (Women's team / general inquiries: (+371) 28 69 42 24); or Jeffrey (Academy: (+371) 27 46 67 06, firstname.lastname@example.org).
