KPN encourages OranjeLeeuwinnen at Camping van Oranje
KPN, Albert Heijn and the Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB) bring Oranje fans together at camping party in Zeist
As of 9 July, the KNVB Campus in Zeist will be home to Camping van Oranje. KNVB, KPN and Albert Heijn will transform the heart of Dutch football into a real campsite where 600 young Oranje fans and their parents can come and camp for each of the Dutch Lionesses’ European Championship games. They can experience the matches there together.
The fans have had to wait a year longer due to the corona virus, but WEURO22 kicks off in just over a week. In the group stage, the Dutch Lionesses, led by national coach Mark Parsons, will play Sweden, Portugal and Switzerland on Saturday 9, Wednesday 13 and Sunday 17 July. These games will definitely be an unforgettable experience for 1800 ‘lucky ones’. They will spend the night in a tent at Camping van Oranje in the Zeister woods.
Of course, everyone present will watch the matches on a big screen because watching Oranje is something you do together. And, like on a real campsite, there will be a barbecue for the camping guests and there is an entire entertainment program for the whole family. For example, you can train like Oranje, visit the VAR room, play a game of FIFA in the KPN E_Room, get your face painted as a roaring Dutch Lioness and meet Kicky, the genuine mascot of the Dutch Lionesses.
And, of course, if we’re talking about Dutch Lionesses then we’re also talking about: Oranje parade! Who can forget the wonderful images from 2017 of this warm-up for Oranje fans. To keep this tradition fully alive, there will not only be an edition in England during WEURO22, but also around the Camping van Oranje at every Lionesses game. Of course, we’re hoping for the same success as in 2017. Camping van Oranje will stay open and receive guests for as long as the Dutch Lionesses remain in the tournament.
It was possible to secure a spot on the campsite recently via KPN and Albert Heijn prize draws. Both competitions are now closed for entries.
