KPN partner of the 'Huis van Oranje' fan event
The greatest World Cup football party in the Netherlands
The time has finally come again: the Dutch national team is participating in the World Cup! This year, for the first time in history, the tournament will take place in fall, from 20 November to 18 December. No celebrations in gardens or on squares because by the time the final is played, it will be almost Christmas! To create that genuine Oranje atmosphere, at this World Cup too, the Dutch football association (KNVB) together with KPN and its nine other partners, is organizing the ‘Huis van Oranje’ [House of Oranje]. The place where Oranje fans will gather en masse to experience the World Cup together. See Oranje in action on mega-screens, a pre-show with top artists and a spectacular half-time show. Experience Oranje at the World Cup like never before!
KPN has been a proud sponsor of the KNVB for years, supporting both the Dutch national team and the Lionesses during all matches and tournaments. Mark Versteegen, Director of Sponsorships at KPN: “In sporting terms, the World Cup is the very highest stage that players and millions of fans worldwide spend years getting ready for. So it’s fantastic that the Dutch can be there too. From the ‘Huis van Oranje’ we’ll be massively behind Oranje and we’re cheering on our men. Together with our customers, we will make it one big party”.
In de Johan Cruijff ArenA, which will be transformed into the ‘Huis van Oranje’, 55,000 Oranje fans will have the opportunity to watch the matches of the Dutch national team live on screens totaling 600 m². An extraordinary viewing experience never before seen on this scale in the Netherlands. Prior to the match, visitors will enjoy Dutch top artists such as Ronnie Flex, Flemming, Typhoon and Emma Heesters. DJ La Fuente will provide a spectacular show at half-time. From the giant stage, several Oranje legends and vlogger and former footballer Soufiane Touzani will look ahead to the match. Jack van Gelder will recall unique memories of previous World Cups and, of course, in the case of a win, the party will continue after the game!
