Moving to a new city in the Netherlands can be tough if you don’t know many people there. This is especially the case for expat football fanatics, who generally require a few footballing friends to make up a team, or need to have a good grasp of Dutch to join most traditional clubs. And then, even if you do decide to join a traditional club, you’re often faced with strict schedules and pricey membership fees that can be difficult to balance with work and everyday life.
This is where FC Urban comes in – a flexible football club that organizes affordable and convenient daily football matches around the Netherlands, for individuals who love the sport. We spoke to Kees Lohman from FC Urban to discover the benefits of playing a team sport like football, and why FC Urban is the easiest way to play in the Dutch cities.
Why FC Urban?
“You don’t need a team, or friends to bring together, you just pick a time you want to play and show up,” says Joep. “The goal of the platform is to provide football matches where everyone can join. We started FC Urban to have more freedom to play.” Meeting new people trough football.
With matches on everyday, and no strict schedules, FC Urban makes playing football convenient – offering football on demand whenever and wherever it suits you. Everyone is welcome and encouraged to join in.
