In 2016, Men United is heading into Europe. We’re asking staff, players, fans and club legends from across The Football League to get their mates together and join us for Football to Amsterdam 2016 (3-5 June 2016).
It’s a great excuse for you and your friends to have a great time on the way and in Amsterdam. And it’s a chance to make new friends too. Matt Holland, Terry Butcher and Luther Blissett are heading up the international peloton kicking off from London or Yorkshire all the way to Amsterdam.
In the meantime, we’re celebrating all things orange with a Dutch football quiz. And who better to ask the questions than Zonal Marking’s football guru, Michael Cox. Click the link at the bottom of the page to reveal the answers. Proost!
