Dutch Football Association , KNVB, donates shirts and materials to Saba’s community

On Saturday 21 December, a group of about forty children and adults received items at the Johan Cruijff court in The Bottom which had been donated by the Royal Dutch Football Association. Among other things, a large number of Nike Shirts, Nike Balls, pawns and shirts have been distributed.

One of the Royal Marechaussee/Immigration officers working on on Saba had contacted the Royal Dutch Football Association to request their support. He noticed that Saba’s footballing community was not equipped with the right materials, so he asked the KNVB asked if they could sponsor.

The football association responded positively and after two months of discussing the arrangements for transport and delivery, on Saturday 21 December 2019 this resulted in the great event of distributing the goodies by Thomas, an officer of the Royal Marechaussee

On behalf of the initiator, and the Sabanen we would like to thank the KNVB and the Royal Marechaussee for their donation and cooperation.

Now the community is still waiting for the lighting that has yet to be applied. This will make it easier for football in the evenings.
