It has started! We have changed our background to orange to support the Dutch and finally the first game has been played. Today will be the day that the Dutch might be able to have at least some revenge on the Spanish team after one of the most frustrating final games ever played in a World Cup. If you are a fan of the Dutch “Oranje” team, or maybe a supporter of any other participating team, Amsterdam offers quite a few nice places to watch the games. The choice is big this year as you could watch it from a local Irish pub, a public square like the Museumplein or a chill beach bar in North!

Museumplein

One of the most popular places for tourists to watch football games is the Museumplein. It will be set up very big with DJ’s from radiostation 538 and lots of food and drinks of course. Last final agains Spain about 180.000 people had gathered at the square to watch the match!

Maria Heinekenplein

Right behind the Heineken Brewery in de Pijp lays a very nice square with lots of bars and restaurants. This place is a little bit less crowded than the Museumplein, but will still be packed with fans from all around, watching the games on one of the many screens in and outside of the many pubs. There are certain pubs that host certain countries, as there is an Irish Pub, a Spanish pub, an Italian Cafe and even a cafe called Marie that offers shelter for German people.

Football on a beach

In Amsterdam there is very special bar which has a sandy beach situation going on and is a great place where you can just chill out the whole day if the weather is good. It has good food and lots of great beers on the menu. Expect lounge chairs and even hammots. Its called Roest. It is a bit out of the center, but you can still get there in about 30 minutes walking. You can watch the Dutch team play on the beach, but if the weather is going to be bad, then they offer a great spot in a huge hall with big screens as well.

Rembrandtplein

On the Rembrandtplein is a nice bar that magically puts out a bunch of big screen tv’s for the matches. It’s a very nice bar called Cool Down Café. The place has a great menu for beer lovers but also snacks are available. In general the Rembrandtplein is a nice place to watch matches as it is will always be a party there, no matter who wins. There is an bar for Australians called Coco’s Outback and for the English people there is St. James Gate..

A nice cold Caiperiña

If you are a fan of nice cocktails on a terras just outside the center, check out Brandstof, a bar in the Kort Marnixstraat. They will have 2 big screens on the terras and will host a special caiperinha bar to make it feel a bit Brazilian.

An arcade hall

If you are up for something completely different, then check out the TonTon Club. Located near the Red Light District it is a nice place with drinks and some snacks and big screens with the matches. Of course the great thing is that when you get too stoned or bored, you can always go and play a game of Mortal Combat or some other arcade games.

Trainstations

If you are travelling and get stuck at a trainstation during the games, then there is no need to panic. At Amsterdam Bijlmer Arena (live-matches), Amsterdam Zuid, Amsterdam CS, Utrecht CS, Den Haag CS, Leiden CS, Amersfoort and Eindhoven there will be big screens showing the matches. Might not be the best place, but its better than missing your favorite team playing…

Oh, a general tip: If the Dutch might win or lose an important game, it could always happen that some rioting will start in the city center. If you witness something that remotely looks like this, get the f*ck out of there. You don’t want to get trapped under a Dutch Police horse or beaten by some dumb cops…
