Hij gaat niet naar Sunderland, een mooi moment dus voor deel 4 van de Tukkercursus voor Steve McClaren! Komt ie…
The English tabloids may think that you are a Tukker already, listening to your new adopted accent, but we think you’re only halfway there.
At the end of this course, Tukker ABC: Steve McClarens guide to becoming a real Tukker, you will never want to leave the region of Twente again.
In this fourth lesson, everything you must know about the Diekman Stadium.
Built in the early fifties and officially opened on 8th August 1956, Diekman Stadium was the home of FC Twente for more than 30 years. The Diekman Stadium was famous (and hated by opponents) because of the running-track around the field. Opponents also regularly complained about wind, rain and a lack of atmosphere. Nevertheless FC Twente played a great many legendary matches on the holy ground of Diekman Stadium. In the early years the stadium had a remarkable scoreboard: balls were hung below the name board of FC Twente or the guest team, representing the number of goals scored by each team. A record was reached in 1968-1969 when 26.500 spectators saw FC Twente win against Ajax (5-1). In 1998 FC Twente moved to the Arke Stadium, in 2008 built out and renamed the Grolsch Veste. Too bad the Diekman Stadium is broken down and only the characteristic wall just beside the J.J. Van Deinselaan is left as reminder to this eminent part of the history of FC Twente.
Volgende keer de letter E. Maar over welk gebruik, wetenswaardigheid in de regio of voetbal-icoon moet Steve dan bijgepraat worden? Laat het weten in de comments.
