Rovers to go Dutch

Jun 1, 2018 | News

Rovers head to Holland for pre-season training camp.


Darrell Clarke’s side will play one game whilst in Holland, against FC Eindhoven, on Wednesday 25thJuly.

The game will have an evening kick off, but will not be played at Eindhoven’s Jan Louwers Stadion, as it has a 4G pitch.

Rovers specifically wanted to play on a grass pitch and so the game will take place at a ground close to Eindhoven. The venue, kick off time and admission prices will be announced in due course.

One of two teams based in the city (PSV are the other), FC Eindhoven currently play in the Eerste Divisie, which is the second tier of Dutch football.

The club’s official colours are blue and white, hence their nickname Blauw-Witten (The Blue-Whites).
