The lionesses will play their farewell match in Zwolle on Saturday, July 3rd. The contender is South Africa, who has number 55 in the world. The Orange Women’s International Match, preparing for the Tokyo Olympics, is the first football match in the Netherlands that can be played in front of full stands again.
Operations Director Jeroen van Leeuwen said he is pleased that PEC Zwolle can host Leeuwinnen, he said in his response. “Especially because this is the first match where full stands are again allowed.”
It’s also great for the city and the region, says Van Leeuwen. “Women’s football in the Netherlands and certainly in the Zwolle region is on the rise. The Orange game is definitely giving an extra boost.”
Our field has been looking great for ages and it hasn’t gone unnoticed in KNVB
At the end of last year, OranjeLeeuwinnen will also come to Zwolle, to participate in the show game with the United States. This was not done then, because the foundation field was not doing well. This is no longer the case, says Van Leeuwen. Our field has been in good shape for quite some time and it hasn’t gone unnoticed by KNVB. We will do everything we can to make it a great football match this afternoon.”
Tickets for the game, which kicks off at 3pm, subject to licensing, are available from €12.50 and can be purchased at the KNVB ticket shop. Tickets will go on sale Monday, June 21 at 9am.
