Life after EuroFIT in the Netherlands

We’re delighted to see that participants in the EuroFIT trial have remained active after completing the programme!

Match
On 09 April, the Vitesse team played against ADO Den Haag in the League. As part of the national attention to Dutch Premier League Community work, the EuroFIT men played a match before the ‘real’ match on the training venue of Vitesse. Afterwards, they were invited to watch the game in the Vitesse stadium.
There are lots of great photos of the match from both ADO DenHaag and Vitesse!

Continued Meetings
In almost all our Dutch clubs, men are still meeting up after the program has ended:

  • At Vitesse, one group moved to a local football club and is meeting on a weekly basis, while the other group has organised walking activities.
  • At ADO Den Haag, the club facilitates continued trainings in the stadium. 20 of the 30 men train each week and they pay the club to use the field, coaches and other facilities.
  • At PSV, small groups meet for walking/running activities, and some are training for a walking/running event.
  • At FC Groningen, the men are organising a tournament for the beginning of July. They have invited EuroFIT men from the other clubs to compete.
