Welcome to the home of the famous* IBM ZRL football team..

On October 15, 1986, the soccer teams of IBM Zurich Laboratory and Dow Chemical played a game which had been arranged earlier. To everyone's surprise, a few hours before the game, the Swedish Academy announced the Nobel Prize for Gerd Binnig (right, holding flowers) and Heinrich Rohrer (left, holding flowers) Newspaper reporters rushed in for a press conference. Towards the end of the conference, Binnig and Rohrer said that it had to end immediately, because both were members of the laboratory soccer team. Reporters followed them to the soccer field. A photographer of the Swiss newspaper Blick took this photograph before the game started. The IBM Zurich Laboratory lost 2:4. (Source: C. J.
