The Netherlands Soccer and Sightseeing

In 2010 the Netherlands proved again to be a top soccer country by finishing 2nd in the 2010 FIFA World Cup and taking 3rd place in the 2014 World Cup and the Dutch Women’s National team finished 2nd in the 2019 Women’s World Cup. The Netherlands also finished as World Cup runner ups in 1974 and 1978. They won the European Championship soccer tournament in 1988. At the peak of their success in the 1970s, the team was famous for its mastery of Total Football (Soccer) and was nicknamed Clockwork Orange for its precision passing. Many soccer teams around the globe emulate the "Total Soccer" approach to playing, and soccer teams traveling here will get a first-hand look at "Total Soccer".

Amsterdam has something for everyone: Van Gogh and Rembrandt museums, unique merchant-house architecture, the Anne Frank House, historic canals crossed by 1,000 bridges, and flowers and diamonds. You can walk everywhere with ease, and nowhere in the world will you find friendlier or prouder people. Volendam and Zaanse Schans, north of Amsterdam, provide a look at the Holland of a few centuries ago, including (of course!) windmills and traditional wooden shoes. South of Amsterdam lays Leiden, dating from Roman times, and Delft, where 300 artists paint porcelain the traditional way.

 
The Netherlands program highlights and sights:
  • Play games vs. local Dutch teams

  • Sightseeing in Amsterdam including the Anne Frank House, van Gogh museum and Amsterdam canals

  • Visit other major Dutch cities like Eindhoven and The Hague

  • Visit stadiums and/or matches of famous pro teams like AFC Ajax Amsterdam and/or PSV Eindhoven 

 

There aren't many countries with so much water and wind, or so many boats, sails, bikes, birds, polders, windmills, flowers, fish, bridges, cafés, cheese - and tall people. There certainly aren't many countries who can claim such a vibrant color (vivid orange in this case) as their own. Simply put, there is no place like the Netherlands. However, continuing on tour without staying a while is a big mistake. The small, friendly country of Holland is known for its tulips, windmills and great painters such as Rembrandt and van Gogh. Insiders know, however, that in any Dutch city, town or village you will find the finest soccer facilities in Europe: fully-equipped clubhouses, surrounded by perfect grass fields.

“Our tour guides – Matt (in Paris) and Rick (in Amsterdam) - were great hosts.  Our driver Eric did a great job. Amsterdam was amazing!! The trip to the Dutch Soccer Federation (KNVB) was a highlight of the trip and the staff and coaches at KNVB were incredibly welcoming and again this was something people would not do under normal circumstances. Thank you again for all of your effort and that of your team. We had a great time!”
