Is Zlatan still active, or do we have any other Dutch members?

I September of this year it is looking likely that I will be moving to Maastricht, Netherlands for at least three years. I don't know much about Dutch football and I need help choosing a football team to support. Once I have made my choice I will need some basic background information and pointers to assist my fandom.

My priorities are:

A) proximity to Maastricht. I want to be able to just go on a Saturday afternoon without any pre planning. For this reason Amsterdam is definitely out.

quality of football team, which considering that is limited in Holland anyway means I may really need to be looking at only top division teams.

C) ease of access - I don't want a team that sells out the stadium, even for when the big opponents come to town, or charges high ticket prices. Like I said, I want to just be able to buy a ticket at the ground on the day.

So, the choices are MVV Maastricht, which is obviously by far the most convenient and easy but are second division. How bad actually are they?

Then there is Roda - they look close enough though I don't know exactly how far and are top division - but do they sell out that small stadium when Ajax comes to town?

And then there is PSV - they don't look too far on the map and are obviously a big team - but how close actually is it and are there ever problems getting tickets and are they expensive?


Or are there any other teams I am missing? Please advise....

I vote MVV Maastricht for town loyalty purposes.

My reasoning says they won't be that much worse than Roda but the con is you won't see division 1 level quality throughout the games from the opponents that roll in.

PSV would be fun because you could be a fan of a 'big' team. Maybe you can catch some European soccer too.

Yeah the problem with Maastricht is that unless there's a cup tie or something I won't get to see Ajax or PSV or whatever and it will just be teams I don't know - but it looks like Roda could well be relegation candidates anyway and it may be that them and Maastricht switch places after my first year - hence why I need Dutch guidance.

I would feel a little bit funny about supporting psv and they could feasibly come up against Chelsea one day. So far in countries I lived in other than England I supported a top division team but a crap one (see signature) and I think it's a fair compromise.

Absolutely but Arnhein is more than 2 hours away.

If MVV have a promotion chance then following them could be fun....

PSV also has Mexican players, so that's always a plus.

Yeah, Santi Palacios, but he hasn't played a single game for them because he immediately got loaned to a Jupiler league team.

Just look for the team with the bigger fanbase in your town, no matter in what division is it. Football low divisions are hard drugs.

I'm under the impression that PSV is kind of a plastic club, so they might not sell out the stadium often.

BTW, the best option, assuming your passport still lets you move across European borders, is Genk.

PSV is a huge team in Holland, i dont think their supporters are as passionate as Feyenoord but still not a plastic club...

Try to catch a game at Rotterdam, De Kuip seems awesome.
