Soccer Fever in Amsterdam - A Photo Essay

 

Evelyn Hannon

My last visit to Holland coincided with the time the 2010 World Soccer Tournament was being played in South Africa. My pals and I were in Amsterdam when Holland played Brazil in the quarter finals. Though my girlfriends and I are not diehard soccer fans, the excitement in the city was palpable and we wanted to be part of the action.

The photo opportunities that day were endless. Hopefully I captured the spirit and cavorting of Holland's fans for Journeywoman readers to enjoy...

 

Dutch fans sporting a bit of 'orange' began gearing up for the afternoon game...

 

Tourists joined in the fun...

 

Shopkeepers brought televisions into their stores; bars and restaurants posted signs to lure fans inside.

 

As the morning wore on more and more orange appeared in the streets...

 

Crowds began gathering in the city squares to watch the game on large screen televisions. (Getty image)
