I'm ready to spend 10 days in the Netherlands and was looking for some suggestions on which game or games I should attend.
My first days (starting from Aug 15) are in Amsterdam and my last in Eindhoven (Aug 24), so I already know I won't be there for Ajax-PSV.
As I'm not dutch, I would like some hints about which game or stadium I could visit without having problems on buying some tickets. I would prefere avoiding the OAD-Reizen or similia frauds, so I was thinking about Utrecht-Willem II close to the Bunnikside.
Plus, do you know which team's training sessions are easiest to visit?
I won't mind coming back with some cool pics or even some nice presents.
Thanks in advance to everyone
First, in general, it really depends on what you want. Nothing is impossible.
For example, how many matches would you like to attend? Do you prefer the big clubs and modern stadiums, or smaller clubs with old stadiums?
Do you like friendlies?
You could visit any match with a clubcard restriction if you're a bit lucky. Best thing to do is, call the club now, explain you're an Italian tourist and ask what's possible. I know in Utrecht normally they'd help you without a clubcard or anything else. Unfortunately I can't help you out for Utrecht as I won't visit that one, but normally this would do.
When you arrive on 15/08 there's the Feyenoord game. Pretty interesting ones and close to Amsterdam are Volendam-NEC and Telstar-Roda JC in the Jupiler League (2nd level).
There's a good bus connection from Amsterdam to Volendam and you can get tickets at the gate, or, if not, just call the club. I'm sure you'll get in anyway as long as they believe you're no NEC-fan.
As for Telstar-Roda, get off at Driehuis trainstation and take a 20 mins walk to the small ground. Best to call the club in advance too, but probably tickets at the gate as well. Believe Roda sold out though the away end.
On Saturday/Sunday 16/17-08 there's football both in Jupiler League and Eredivisie. Just try to get in where you want to. Only at Excelsior and Groningen no clubcard needed.
Then I don't know if you care about friendlies, but there's a special one on 19/08 in Gorinchem. The former Eritrean national team play a local team in the old fashioned stadium from Unitas. The Eritreans left their country as refugees in I believe 2012 and then via Uganda and Romania they ended up in Gorinchem. Finally they're playing football again, but just friendlies as they're officially illegal. I'm going there too
, but I can imagine you don't care about such a match, hehe.
On Thursday there's Europa League. Best pick would be either PSV-Shaktyor Soligorsk or Lokeren-Hull, although you might not be able to return after the Lokeren game.
As for PSV you don't need a clubcard and connections to Amsterdam are good by train, the stadium is next to the trainstation (5 mins walk).
The PEC-Sparta Praha game will be sold out, just don't spend any time trying to get in there, won't be possible.
Before you leave on 22/08 there's another complete Jupiler League round. In Amsterdam there's Ajax' reserves playing Volendam. Better picks would be Den Bosch-RKC (derby with restrictions), NEC-Fortuna (need to call the club), Telstar-Achilles (close to A'dam, no restrictions) or like Wally said VVV-De Graafschap.
What you could do as well is a day to Maastricht and finish with MVV-Sparta for example. We're a small country so even Amsterdam-Maastricht is doable by train.
On 23/08 Topklasse starts, so plenty of options without restrictions to visit an afternoon game on a typical Dutch sportpark. Most interesting ones I'd say are Spakenburg-Rijnsburg or Kozakken Boys-IJsselmeervogels.
These matches you could combine with a Eredivisie evening match, like Kozakken Boys-IJsselmeervogels + Willem II-AZ or Genemuiden-HHC with Heerenveen-Excelsior (no restrictions).
