KNVB expects between 5,000 and 10,000 Dutch fans for the match from the eighth final of the European Championship in Budapest. The Orange team will play as the group winner on Sunday 27 June against the No. 3 in Group D, E or F for a place in the quarter-finals of the European Final.
About 1,300 Orange Club card holders will soon receive a code and can then purchase a ticket for the eighth final from Orange. They did not tell UEFA before April 22 that they were giving up the chance to follow the Dutch national team in the European Championship. The remaining tickets will then be distributed to loyal Orange fans and may go on sale at a later time.
There are currently no more tickets available in UEFA for the game than the eighth final in the Hungarian capital. The game is currently sold out. Tickets may still be available if the Orange discount is known. Tickets may be forfeited by sponsors. Also, the opponent of the Dutch national team may not want to take all the cards that he is entitled to.
Exception for foreigners
About 53,000 spectators are welcomed to the Ferenc Puskas Arena in Budapest for the European Championship matches. The Hungarian government excludes foreigners who hold a valid ticket to attend a match in the European Championship. Unlike other foreign tourists, they do not have to quarantine upon arrival. They must submit a negative PCR test.
After returning to the Netherlands, Orange fans do not have to go into quarantine. The new aura test isn’t necessary either. “These are government rules,” a KNVB spokesperson responded to a question if the association feared new pollution pools. “We always stick to that.”
KNVB will also create a fan zone for fans in Budapest. The Football Association is already in talks with local authorities about a suitable venue for a party with lots of Dutch music. Fans want to walk from the fan zone to the stadium, as they used to at the previous European and World Championships.
