Just when you thought Oranje fans and their Links Rechts dance moves couldn’t go much more viral, their beloved team keeps giving them more to cheer for. The Netherlands beat Romania 3 – 0 in last night’s first European Championship knockout match, meaning they are through to the quarter-finals for the first time in 16 years. Fans go crazy, but the start is shaky The match was played in Munich, which holds a lot of Dutch football history — from the ’88 European victory to, well, THAT World Cup final loss in 1974. Yesterday’s match was also one of ups and downs, with Romania having the bright ..read more

Dutch fans often make themselves known at major football events, normally by flooding the streets with oranje. But at Sunday’s European Championship match against Poland, their attire was a whole lot more controversial. Three male supporters wanted to express their patriotism by recognising a Dutch football hero, Ruud Gullit, who was part of the Euros-winning team in 1988. So, they grabbed their orange shirts, wigs and brown face paint… yeah, that’s where it all went wrong. Now, the fans are receiving worldwide criticism for wearing ‘blackface’, which is considered a racist and deeply offensi ..read more

There’s nothing quite like a football game to get the Dutch fanatical and frenzied — and this weekend was no different. The 2024 UEFA European Football Championship began last Friday, and Oranje (the nickname for the Dutch national football team) had its first match against Poland on Sunday, June 16. Natuurlijk, a horde of orange was present in Hamburg, Germany, to display their support for the team. The Oranje fan parade began gathering as early as 8:30 AM, dancing along to Dutch DJ Armin van Buuren’s greatest hits before making their way to the stadium, reports the BBC.

Just in time for spring, Rotterdam is getting an exciting new attraction: Rif010 — an urban surfing paradise right in the heart of the city. Ten years later than planned, the construction of Rif010 is finally nearing completion, writes the AD. In just a few months’ time, you can catch some waves right next to the famous Rotterdam Foodhallen (if you dare ). Surf’s up! The dreamer behind this project? Edwin Van Viegen. As a surfer himself, his idea was to create a wave pool in Rotterdam’s Steigersgracht canal so people could surf around in a truly unique setting.   Rif010’s big ..read more

How did the Netherlands’ women’s football team scoot around Tauranga, New Zealand, during the FIFA Women’s World Cup 2023? In true Dutch fashion, of course — atop the 30 orange bikes they purchased. But now that their time at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup has come to an end, what will come of all these Dutch-coloured two-wheelers? Tossing them in Amsterdam canals isn’t an option out there. It turns out these neon orange bikes are being (very kindly) donated to charities — including Good Neighbour — in the local area, Tauranga City reports. Contributing to the community Apparently, the ..read more

The Oranje women’s football team were seen by thousands on social media, presumably, doing the haka, a traditional Māori dance of New Zealand — and the internet didn’t hold back. The Dutch football association (KNVB) proudly posted a video and images, via Instagram, of Oranje players Sherida Spitse and Merel van Dongen doing movements that very closely resemble the traditional New Zealand ceremonial dance, the haka, reports NU.nl.  The Dutch team came under heavy fire for disrespecting and mocking Māori culture without learning about the culture and the meanings behind the dance. &n ..read more
