Laurens Tukker, FC Twente Fan

Match: FC Utrecht Vs FC Twente Fan

Published: 3/6/2013

 

I visited FC Utrecht 6 februarie 2011 to watch my team FC Twente play there. When we arrived there we were given a parking place and it was less than 50 metres to the stadium. However nobody was available to guide you from the entrance to your place in the stand. The viewing area was elevated and we could use an elevator to get there. There was a disabled toilet available nearby. A seat was provided for my personal assistant. The view of the pitch was good however unlike other Dutch stadiums we did not receive complimentary line up, information paper of koffie/thee. We could get access to the refreshment kiosk and there was a good choice to pick from.
