World Cup

The 21st edition of World Cup will take place in Russia in the summer of 2018.

The Russia national football team will play their first match at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on June 14, 5 p.m. against Saudi Arabia. The Saudi Arabia national football team is the only team ranked lower than the hosts. One month of soccer fever gets under way as the competition kicks off in Russia! The final will take place in Moscow at the Luzhniki Stadium on Sunday July 15. With the Netherlands not having made the cut for the 2018's big trophy tournament, there are still fantastic evenings with a good atmosphere. Reigning champions Germany will meet Mexico, Sweden and South Korea in Group F as they look to defend their Wold Cup crown this summer. They want the 5th star!

We put all results online and show where in the Netherlands public viewings take place.

"Public Viewing" a term used in Germany for the live broadcasting of sporting events, a public screening. This expression became known from the year 2006 during World Cup in Germany. The Dutch say "WK kijken". Due to strict guidelines and laws in the Netherlands, it is very difficult to arrange a real public viewing. It is easier to see the World Cup in a restaurant or bar. So do not be surprised.
