Am I able to watch any Football teams train?

Hi,

Im lucky enough to be coming to Reykjavik this Thursday for a week. I understand that the Icelandic football season is on a break at this time of year but do any teams in and around Reykjavik still train and would I be able to watch them? I play to a decent standard and would love to watch a team train.

Thank you in advance.

During winter the people in Iceland watch football in TV or travel to England or Scotland for one and one match ... but you can most likely go to handball and vollyball matches. But you actually don't miss much not seeing Icelandic football ... they never need to re-play in TV .. because they play slow in the beginning ... ;-)

Sorry to hijack slightly Buel10, but I have to ask Thorkell more about the Handball.

We both watched it in the copper box for the first time this year at the Olympics and have become real fans of the sport, and are well aware of its following in Iceland. Do you know or have a link to any there any matches that might be happening across the christmas or new year period? Is it televised?

If I wasn't recovering from a knee injury, I would be asking about where I could give it a go but sadly not.
