    Visiting Feyenoord Saturday & SBV
    Excelsior Sunday

    Are pre-loaded fan cards required for club shops and catering facilities?
    How early prior to kick-off should I turn up?
    I have asked Excelsior to keep me a ticket they said they would how much trust shall I put into their word?
    And can I use my match tickets as ticket for the Metro/Tram?

    In the stadium you have to pay with special coins you can buy at the grounds
    https://www.dekuip.nl/nieuws/nieuwsoverzicht/nieuwe-betaalmunten-in-seizoen-2015-2016
    Give google translate a try to read this site. I havenot got the time to translate it, but if google gives you something you donot understand, give me a pm with the "strange" part.
    If you by the clubshops mean the fanshops, these are outside the stadium, so you can pay with cash or credit card.
    This webpage shows where to find them and the opening hours. You might have a look at what to buy too.
    https://www.feyenoordfanshop.nl/service-openingstijden-fanshops.
    Excelsior are a gentlemen's club. You will find the nostalgia of a ground and stadium you would only remeber from long time gone in the UK. You will enjoy yourself there and make sure you yell themto victory as they are in relegation danger. If they can stay up, we in Rotterdam will have three "Eredivisie"-clubs next season in a radius of 5 kilometers, because Sparta Rotterdam, the oldest pro club in the Netherlands promotes to it.
    I think you can trust them.
    Have fun!
    Forgot your transport question:
    I donot think so, unless it is specifically stated on it, but given you ask I guess it doesnot.
    So you have to buy a chip ticket. If you have the plan to move around alot during your stay, it is wise to buy at least for the saturday a day ticket for 7,50 euro (=5.50-6 ). Than you have unrestricted access to the RET transport the whole day and evening. If you plan to move around on sunday too, buy the 12.50 Euro 2 days ticket.
    Please donot forget to check in and out every time you enter or leave the bus, sub way or tram. You will find the public transport to be frequent and comfortable and if you tell people you are here to visit Feyenoord and Excelsior you all of a sudden have alot of friends.
    Here you find in English the transport info.

    Cheers! I have discovered a 3 day Rotterdam Welcome Card for 20e which gives travel on tram,metro & bus for 3 days and discounts at selected attractions and will be staying in the middle of the city close to most.
    Can you take a ferry from the Museum area to the pier close to SBV Excelsior?
    Does Rotterdam open later on Mondays than the rest of the week?
     
  5. Nope, unless you are willing to walk about 600-800 meters to the Parkkade. It is rather expensive though! You have to hop on at the Parkkade and hop off at the "Watertoren/Erasmus Univerity" The stadium is a few minutes from there.
    There is an English sitepage of the "Watertaxi":
    http://www.watertaxirotterdam.nl/plan_uw_reis/
    I rather take the RET public transport.
    By the way, you can extensively plan your moving around via the internet. You get detailed info on your phone if you have internet/wifi on it.
    This is the site for public transport in English:
    http://9292.nl/en#
    to Stadion Woudestein, Rotterdam!

    Yes, most shops open about 12:00-12:30 on mondays.
    By the way, I guess you have internet at home. You should take advanrage of the detailed planning of the routes, also walking routes of the places you like to visit. So for instance when you type Museumpark Rotterdam, you get info about it and when you click on:"routebeschrijving", you can plan it in advance before you take off and perhaps also print it!
    Just a suggestion.

    Is ViaGogo still the best way to buy a ticket if you're visiting from outside the US?

    It depends on the game. Well worth emailing the club first. I think PSV and Ajax still do expensive packages for foreigners that includes a voucher for the club shop.

    OK that is a potential flashpoint game. No love lost between the fans. Try Ajax via email.

    Anyone knows if it's possible to get tickets for the front places in Feyenoord's De Kuip?
     
  14. As far as I know all tickets until the end of the season are sold out. But you might get a ticket via viagogo

    https://sport.eventim.nl/ols/feyenoord/en
    Sold out home games
    All the single tickets for the games below are sold out:

    Feyenoord - AZ
    Feyenoord - Go Ahead Eagles
    Feyenoord - FC Utrecht
    Feyenoord - Heracles Almelo
    viagogo
    Home game sold out? You can buy a ticket by our official ticketing partner viagogo. Season ticket holders who are unable to visit a match can offer their seat to other fans. You can visit the viagogo Feyenoord page by www.feyenoord.nl/viagogo.
     
  15. If it fails you might try an away game.

    Vitesse rarely sell out, so that might be a possibility.

    Hi all, does anyone know what section of De Kuip Feyenoord supporters sit in? Trying to attend a match and to the extent I can choose seats, it would be good to know. I've tried to research this online, but have been unsuccessful.

    The best spots for being with the hard core fans are the stands around the back lines of the stadium, so basically the green and yellow parts.

    Green and yellow? I'm used to home supporters sitting behind one goal and away supporters sitting behind the other. Is this not the case at De Kuip?

    Sometimes away supporters are banned as in the case of the Ajax matches and in other cases they are afraid to show up at the stadium because of the Feyenoord supporters.:p
     
  20. No, the away stand is GG and FF. When there are no away supporters more than fit in GG, the FF tickets are sold to Feyenoord supporters.

    De plattegrond van De Kuip staat hieronder met alle vakken en ingangen van het stadion. Het stadion is verdeeld in vier tribunes genaamd: Olympiatribune, Stadiontribune, Maastribune, Marathontribune (deze tribune is vernoemd naar Willem van Hanegem).

    Also, does anyone have any advice on how I can get a ticket to the Ajax-FC Twente match on February 11th? I didn't think this was a big match, but it seems sold out based on Ajax's website (https://www.visitajax.com/upcoming-games/ajax-fc-twente.html) - although admittedly, I do not follow the Eredivisie.
     
  23. According to this site there are still tickets available for that match, but it's in dutch.
    https://sport.eventim.nl/ols/ajax/nl/ajax1/channel/shop/areaplan/venue/event/4193
    It has a box with the text: Hulp nodig? (= Need help?)
    When you go to the box "Stel hier je vraag" ( Pose your question here), you can put it in and use English. I expect them to respond in English.
    You need to ask if you need a club card (some matches require a club card)

    Excellent, thank you, that worked! I just went ahead and purchased the ticket - it seems the club card is not required for this match. I wonder, though, why the English version of the website (link I previously shared) indicates that the match is sold-out.
     
  25. The burgomaster/mayor has issued a cap on the number of English stag/hens parties in a weekend, so ...;)
