The stadium where Tilburg’s William II professional football club plays has only existed in its current form since 1995. At the time it was a state of the art building, as most Dutch stadia were standing room only prior to its completion. The club itself was founded 100 years earlier and was once quite prestigious. In fact, William II was the first Dutch professional club and it won the league in the first year, a feat they only managed on two other occasions. 10 years ago Willem II’s players even faced the best of European football in the Champions League, but, unfortunately, since then things have gone from bad to worse. A number of exhibitions detail the glory days of old and if you ask the right person, you’ll be able to have a look inside the stadium.
