The men’s football teams are part of the V.V. Wilhemus international section and is the only expat men’s section in the region Den Haag, Rotterdam en Leiden.
The expat section consists of a mix of cultures with men from numerous different countries, like Spain, UK, Peru, Russia, Uganda, Italy, Mexico, Mozambique, Norway, Germany, but also The Netherlands. The age, experience and level of the players varies – some men have played nearly all of their lives, and some had never kicked a football before until joining the expats of Wilhelmus. Our youngest player just reached the age where he is allowed to play in adult competition and some of our older players take their children along to the games on Saturday.
We play competitive football in the Dutch league and play games almost every Saturday. There is also a Sunday men’s team, if you are interested in playing on Sundays.
We’re always looking for new players to join us. Feel free to join us for a couple of trainings to see whether football is something for you!
The trainings are every Monday and Wednesday at 19:30 at V.V. Wilhelmus.
During the months June and July there are no regular trainings as the season ends in May. We do however have “summer football” during those months on Wednesdays at 19:30 where we play friendly matches of 8 vs 8 on half a pitch. The rule of thumb is that the first 32 people are guaranteed a spot in a team. If you are late, you get a spot on the “we are late and therefore should be ashamed” team :-). Advise is to be there at 19:00. Summer football is open to everyone and you can ask for Mark Knight when you arrive.
