A call to all supporters to show support for the loss of fans lives

Dear supporters.

A call has been made for all supporters attending the ADO Den Haag v Ajax game on Sunday to show support and love to fans who have recently lost their lives or lost people close to them.

This week saw a horrific car accident involving supporters of our twin club Legia Warsaw. They were traveling home from the club’s Europa league game against Lokeren last Thursday. This game was also attended by many fans from Den Haag. The terrible news that two supporters of Legia have died has touched us deeply. Our relationship with Legia has recently become much stronger. Besides our endorsement we want to do something extra to help our friends in this difficult time!

But unfortunately there was more bad news last week.

Unfortunately, last week, November 17, Chiara; the daughter of a loyal supporter of FC Den Haag Amar, did not come alive in the world. During the labour there were complications. His son Jediro Sofia plays at ADO Den Haag for the under 9’s at  the youth academy based at the Aftrap in Zuiderpark. All the parents of his team mates laid a beautiful heart with flowers with the ribbon that read: “ADO DEN HAAG under 9″

Also last week, one of the famous supporters from the Old Firm FC Den Haag Max de Lange passed away after a short illness.

We call on every supporter to join us in the 12th minute to clap  and reflect on these terrible events. After a minutes applause we want everybody to sing the football anthem “You Never Walk Alone.” as a special mark of respect.

Together with: FCDH MiddenNoord, Northside.nl Groengeelhart, ADO Den Haag, Fansupport Den Haag, ADOJournaal, ADOFans, ADOforExpats & Vakkie D Den Haag

Stadium ticket office open tomorrow

There are still a few hundred tickets available for the ADO v Ajax game tomorrow.

The stadium ticket office will be open from 10:30 onwards. You must have a season ticket or club card to purchase a ticket. Good news, if you do not have either, a friend can get a second ticket if they are in possession of one of those tickets/cards. It’s the biggest and best atmosphere of the season, so well worth trying your best to go.

Final training before ADO v Ajax

At 10.30 this morning the players and staff of ADO Den Haag walked down the tunnel steps on to a sunny pitch to be greeted by a crowd of roughly around 350. Fireworks, chanting and lots of yellow and green smoke filled the stadium.

It was a gentle work out for the players. After loosening up they did some close control, followed by some short pitch pass and move exercises. The final session was pure shooting practise, as three goals were placed in front of the family stand and the three keepers just had shots raining in on them. As they left the pitch the players walked across to the Midden Noord to applaud the fans.

Another solid financial year for ADO

The fiscal year 2013-2014 recently closed and for the third consecutive year ADO Den Haag sees a profit, amounting to €300,000.

Net sales, excluding transfer income showed an increase of 3%, of course, a result which the club are very satisfied with in these tough economic times. The profit is derived from continued tight control over costs combined with enforcement of all sources of income and transfers. The club expect to continue this positive trend duting the current season.

ADO v Ajax almost a sell out

The big game ADO Den Haag v Ajax this Sunday is heading towards being a total sell out. So far 13,500 tickets have been sold. The club and the supporters have worked together towards the game and there will be some great spectacles to see and be involved in.

There will be firework by Xena fireworks (please note it is 100% illegal to bring your own fireworks into the stadium!) There is also a secret banner to be exhinited as the players come out, trust me, it’s amazing. There will also be 4,500 flags spread around the stadium to add colour. (please do NOT take flags home with you, hand them in at the exits so they can be used many more times.) In collaboration with Dedicated Management, ADO Den Haag have again arranged a fun DJ for the match. Bronx DJ will spin a tasty megamix to create a good atmosphere for the game.

A Saturday invite for pre Ajax training

This coming Sunday afternoon ADO Den Haag will be playing hosts to Ajax of Amsterdam, the biggest home game of the season. History dictates that the final training before this match is attended by as many fans as possible. When it was held in the old Zuiderpark stadium, a few thousand would turn up. There would be plenty of smoke bombs, fireworks and singing. Since training has been in the Kyocera, numbers have dropped. So this time, the fans want to bring the atmosphere back to this event.

So please go along to the Kyocera stadium this coming Saturday morning. Help to back the players and give them some much needed backing and support. The training starts at 10:30, so try to be there by 10:15 and be ready for the atmosphere to kick in. It’s fun, so go along and enjoy the experience.

ADO ladies lose friendly against male youth side

ADO ladies played against the B1 male youth side of HSV Duno tonight. On a cold night some of ADO’s top players were given time off or were out through injury. Yet it was a close game, which bodes well for the rest of the season.

The home side took the lead in the third minute when a defence error allowed a player to turn quickly and smash the ball into the back of the net, 1-0.

ADO were not in the game for the first fifteen minutes but eventually started to play their way back into the game. Paola van der Veen, Tessa Oudejans and Daphne in ‘t Veld were so strong and drove ADO forward. As time went on they grew confident and just before the half time whistle and error by the Duno keeper, allowing a free=kick by Jessie van Leeuwen to drop unchallenged through his hands, a goal ADO deserved, 1-1.

The second half started brightly for ADO, beginning how they ended the first half. In the fifty fourth minute ADO took the lead. van Leeuwin crossed the ball perfectly for the incoming Franca van de Kuilen whose header hit the top corner of the net, 1-2.

It took time for Duno to reorganise, but after a few changes in personnel, they clicked. They started to run ADO ladies ragged. They got level and then really went for it. They scored two more times to make it 4-2. It could have been much worse. The hosts missed open goals, had shots kicked off the line and others missed by millimetres.

In the final minutes ADO were awarded a penalty after Sharona Tieleman was fouled inside the penalty box. Judith Frijlink squeezed the spot kick just inside the post to make the final score 4-3. It was a good work out for the ADO ladies, much needed due to the long gap between games in the BeNe league.
