Welcome"It's not the size of the dog in the fight but the size of the fight in the dog"... that rings so true for the tiny geographic country of The Netherlands, aka Holland. However, when it comes to the world game of football, the Dutch are titans. The Dutch changed the trajectory of World Football when they introduced the revolutionary "Total Football" style of play in the '70s which fostered a culture, methodology, and philosophy that future generations still benefit from today. Fitting into Texas 16 times over and equaling the same number of participants in the game just in Texas alone, The Netherlands youth club system (Ajax, Feyenoord & PSV and many more), continue to produce a healthy consistent crop of intelligent and skillful players that dominate the top leagues throughout Europe. The exceptional talent produced in Holland is displayed on its national team famously wearing the Orange Colors. By adopting and implementing the successful footballing methodology and philosophy of the Dutch, The Royal Dutch Football Club is proud to bring this unique footballing culture to soccer enthusiasts in the Dallas Fort Worth area. For those wanting to take their game to the next level, the Dutch Lions offer a soccer experience that inspires a lifelong passion for the game, teaches and develops an attacking-possessive style of play that enables players to reach their full footballing potential. See you on the fields.

Maybe the Dutch were the real winners in the `74 World CupJanuary 12, 2019
It’s OK,” Johan Cruyff said, patting me reassuringly on the arm. We sat on a small couch at the old Olympic Stadium in Amsterdam in September 2014. “I don’t do many of these long ones any more,” Cruyff murmured after I had offered a small apology for making him endure yet another interview. The 67-year-old was in his home town for the day, having flown in from Barcelona. He shrugged nonchalantly. “We will do this one properly. I can see you have lots of questions.” Cruyff pointed at my stained sheet of paper, over which I had spilt a cup[…]Read More
