The Winter stop is here

The Dutch football Winter break is now in effect. The first half of the season for our club has gone very well. Highs and lows have been the order of the day, but all in all, I believe most are happy with the clubs position half way through the season.

The start of part two of the season begins on January 20th with an way game at Willem II of Tilburg. THe first home game of 2013 is on January 26th against Roda JC.

Hope to see more of you expats in the Kyocera stadium in 2013!

I am planning to organise a meeting for expats who wish to go to an ADO game but have nobody to travel with. The plan would be to meet in the city first for a quick drink to help to get to know each other before travelling to the stadium on the tram. Watch this website for announcements.
