WELCOME IN ROTTERDAM

Ajax vs. PSV may ring more of a bell with certain supporters from either club but it is Ajax vs. Feyenoord that is the long-standing and most intense rivalry in the Netherlands. ‘De Klassieker’, as it is called, involves the countries two biggest clubs in the countries two biggest cities, Amsterdam and Rotterdam. The cultural difference, artists in Amsterdam and hard-workers in Rotterdam, plays its part as well. Despite a little over 70 kilometers separating Amsterdam and Rotterdam, theirs is a rivalry which transverses an ideological, political and regional divide, and, for a small country, a chasm of cultural identity

Explore the football culture in the Netherlands together with a local Feyenoord fan. Our small group trips are the ultimate way to experience football through local eyes and beyond the 90 minutes in the stadium.

Before the match, we'll get an exclusive private stadium tour at the legendary De Kuip together with a local host of Feyenoord Rotterdam. Have a look behind the scenes of this great club and learn more about the rivalry with Ajax Amsterdam from the club's perspective.
