If the Dutch national team is going to play the eighth final in Budapest, there may also be a fan square in the Hungarian city, a KNVB spokesperson told NU.nl.

The Orange fans can then gather on that square before the game and drink a beer.

"However it normally went."

The KNVB says it is busy preparing for the possible destinations where the Orange squad can play in the future of the European Championship.

If the Netherlands succeeds in winning the group, the first foreign destination will be Budapest, where the Dutch national team would then play on June 27.

When the Orange wins against Austria on Thursday evening, group win - and therefore a trip to the Hungarian capital - is certain.

For this purpose, among other things, the KNVB is already in consultation with the local government.

The fan square is also being discussed with the city.

From there, the fans would then have to leave for the match in the Puskás Arena together.

"Football is best with supporters in the stands, so if it can be done in a safe and responsible way, we will of course support it," said the spokesperson.

It is not yet known how many tickets will be available

The KNVB cannot yet say how many tickets will be released for Orange fans.

It is also not yet clear when ticket sales for the match in Budapest will start.

According to the spokesperson, there will probably only be more clarity about this after Monday, when the Netherlands plays against North Macedonia.

When Orange fans travel abroad to follow a European Championship match, they must take into account the travel advice of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Hungary, for example, is currently on yellow (note, security risks).

However, that advice may change in the near future, so Orange fans are advised to keep an eye on the travel advice.

On Tuesday, Hungary and Portugal also faced each other in the sold-out Puskás Aréna.

The match was attended by more than 50,000 spectators.

What should you keep in mind when traveling to Hungary?

  • Tourist trips to the country are not yet possible, but there is an exception for people who can show a valid ticket for a European Championship match.

  • They must then have a corona test taken three days before departure.

  • When returning to the Netherlands, the European Championship fans do not have to show a negative corona test in home quarantine.
