Fans send ADO to Ajax with noise and colour

At 10.10 this morning, perhaps we saw the start of a new tradition? As the players left their hotel in the bus, it took in a detour via the Kyocera stadium. Many fans had gathered along the road to give the players a good luck farewell on the way to Amsterdam.

When the bus came in to view, smoke bombs were ignited, yellow and green streamer rockets were fired, horns were sounded and the fans sang loud and proud. The players loved it and waved back at the fans with huge smiles on their faces. Well done to all those who organised it all. A brilliant way to send the players on their way.

Be there to wish ADO good luck in Amsterdam

Tomorrow for the first time, as the team bus leaves for Amsterdam it will drive slowly past the supporters home at around 10:00 on its way to the game. Fans are expected to be there in number with smoke bombs, colour and lots of noise. So why no go along and give the players a good luck send off?


ADO ladies suffer heavy defeat at PSV

On Friday night ADO ladies suffered a heavy defeat away at PSV Eindhoven. At half-time they were already three goals down. Changes were made before and during the break, but nothing really changed as the home side outplayed the visitors.

ADO managed to keep the score at 3-0 and created a few chances, but in the seventy eighth minute PSV increased their lead. At 4-0 you’d expect that ADO would have given up. But in the eighty sixth minute, Dominique Vugts got a goal to make the fans that travelled a little bit happier.

Goal scorers: Sisca Folkertsma (1-0), Myrthe Moorrees (2-0, pen.), Vanity Lewerissa (3-0), Priscilla Mesker (4-0, own goal) Dominique Vugts (4-1)

ADO team: Jennifer Vreugdenhil, Yvette van der Veen, Hélène Heemskerk, Kim Dolstra (24. Michelle Vrieling), Priscilla Mesker; Dominique Bruinenberg, Lisanne Grimberg, Nadine Noordam (60. Dominique Vugts); Lineth Beerensteyn, Kirsten Koopmans, Pia Rijsdijk (73. Maartje Looijen)

ADO’s next game is at home to sc Heerenveen, Friday 4th September, kick-off at 19:30.

Fans get a chance to wish ADO good luck before game at Ajax

ADO Den Haag have understood that among the supporters there is a great and understandable desire to wish the players and staff good luck by giving the team bus a great send off on its way to the game in Amsterdam. The players and technical staff have responded positively and want the supporters to have the chance to cheer them on. Therefore, the team bus will be at 10:15 on the Donau driving towards the A4. At the roundabout at the Tiber the bus will drive at walking pace to the MFC (Supporters Home). It is important that the bus is allowed to keep moving so that there is no delay of the game preparations.

Players, technical staff and staff of ADO Den Haag have made an explicit request for fans not to come to the Van der Valk Hotel in Nootdorp, but to support the bus on the Donau with an appropriate, enthusiastic and stimulating guard of honor. On their behalf, the club want to thank everyone for the kind cooperation.

ADO’s keeper coach joins Dutch national team

The ADO Den Haag goalkeeping coach Arno van Zwam has immediately been added to the staff of the Dutch national team. Van Zwam is the successor of Patrick Lodewijks, who, during sad family circumstances had to stop working with the Dutch national team.

The 45-year-old van Zwam is added to the technical staff for the remaining games of Holland’s European Championship qualification series. The goalkeeper trainer will combine his work at ADO Den Haag with that of the national side. He has already been involved with national duties since Lodewijks had to leave in June, when Holland played against the United States and Latvia.

Build up to Ajax v ADO

The MFC (supporters home) next to the Kyocera stadium will be open on Sunday from 11:30 pm for fans who want to watch the match together live on television.

On Saturday at 10:30, the last training before the game of the most interest to the club, the training will be open as always to the public. The North Side (Midden Noord) will be open, it is most important that the pitch remains undamaged. On behalf of the club, a very explicit request is made for not letting off any fireworks. The setting off fireworks will not be tolerated. In case of damage to the artificial surface, it is not inconceivable that the pitch may need to be replaced. This could bring the club into big trouble. As always we count on your passion and support but don’t lose the interest of the club out of your sight.

Supporters with a stadium ban can not go to the training, but Sunday may go to the MFC to watch the game.
