BREWERS SET FOR INTERNATIONAL FRIENDLY

8 July 2015

IT will be an international friendly for Burton Albion on July 11 when the Brewers take on ADO Den Haag in Holland.

ADO Den Haag were founded on February 1905 as Alles Door Oefening (ADO) in a café  in The Hague.

In 1971 the club merged with city rivals Holland Sport to form FC Den Haag.  They quickly became successful reaching the Dutch Cup final in 1972 (losing 3–2 to Ajax) before winning the competition in 1975.

They qualified for the European Cup Winners Cup in 1976 and played West Ham in the quarter finals. A 4–2 win in The Hague was followed by a 3–1 defeat away.

 After another merger the club were renamed ADO Den Haag in 1996.

The new club then spent a long spell in the Dutch second tier before promotion and four seasons in the Eredivisie, then were relegated again in 2006-07.
After finishing sixth in the 2007–08 season, they went on to win the play-offs, gaining promotion back to the Eredivisie for 2008–09.

The club's home is the 15,000 seater Kyocera Stadion but Albion will play at the home of Laakkwartier with a kick off time of 5pm (local time) to avoid playing on ADO Den Haag’s artificial pitch.

The ground opens 90 minutes before kick off. There is limited parking but fans can use tram lines 16, 17 or  the 18 bus in The Hague. Entrance tickets costs 7.50 Euros (adults) or 5 Euros  (youth under 13 and 65+).
