After the match 👋

18 June (Third-place match) ⚽

⚠️ There will be limited train service after the match due to the planned construction works at Deventer station. Please check the official 9292 app for train timings and plan your travel. You can book train tickets in advance, but this doesn't guarantee you a seat on a specific connection.

If you do take the train after the match:

  • Queue management will be in place at Kennispark station.
  • Make sure you join the correct queue – there will be one for trains to ENSCHEDE and one for trains going to HENGELO / AMSTERDAM / the west of the country.
  • There will be no access to trains via the tunnel at Kennispark. Instead, join the designated queues in front of the station.
  • Trains to the west of the country will be extremely busy. It will be easier to join the queue for trains to ENSCHEDE instead. Enjoy what the city has to offer, and jump on a train to your final destination later in the evening. You’ll avoid the crowds and make the most out of your UEFA Nations League Finals experience!
