Football Community

At the Magpies we are a football community living in Taipei.  We don't only play football together we also watch live matches, and have different activities like curry nights, going to the beach, going to the water park, pub crawls, end of season parties, paintballing and loads of other activities. 

We have people in our team from all around the world.  There are over 50 countries which have been represented so far in our team, and all this is because everyone who joins us has a great love of football.  

Because we have so many different people in our team, if anyone in the team ever needs to know anything about Taiwan or has any concerns, difficulties or doesn't know how to do something or find anything here, people post their question to the team, and the team is always willing to help out.  

We hope there will always be more people coming to join our footballing community here in Taipei and we look forward to seeing you all soon.
