The preseason friendly games of our Kemphans

Not only in terms of season ticket sales, the sights are fully set on 2023-2024, but our players and technical staff are also quietly preparing for the upcoming season. Ahead of an exciting new league season, our Kemphians will play five friendly matches in July. The opener will be the practice game against STVV on Saturday 1 July, the final match against Dutch side Willem II in Kuipje.

After a well-earned rest period, players and staff are back in full swing. In between the hard training work, our Kemphans will cross swords five times in several practice matches. The first opponent on duty will be fellow first division team STVV on 1 July during a practice match behind closed doors.

Afterwards, the team will travel to Papendal from 3 to 13 July. During the Dutch training camp, our Kemphians also don their matchday uniforms twice. First, a practice match against PEC Zwolle awaits them on 11 July, followed by the next match against Heerenveen the day after.

Back in their own country, the preparation is rounded off with a practice match against POAK from Greece on 16 July and a final practice match at home against Willem II on 22 July. Concrete ticketing information for these last two matches will follow later.
