Having managed to make it to Bremen and back in one piece I'm planning on going to the FC Twente away game too. (Gutted but can't do Milan due to work commitments).
I fancy doing a couple of nights in Amsterdam, heading to Enschede for the game and heading back to the Dam the same night.
Does anyone have any ideas how to go about this? I've looked into trains and you can get to Enschede from Amsterdam but there aren't trains running late enough to make it back the same night.
Does anyone know of any coach trips doing the run (or some other way of doing it.)
If anyone is driving it I'm more than happy to share fuel (there might be 2 of us going).
Any idea would be great.
See you down the lane.

I'm doing the same - staying in Enschede overnight.
Worth noting that in Eindhoven they put on a late train back to Amsterdam. Although they had a train station right outside the stadium. Dunno if same will apply at Twente.

I checked it on the website of our trainsystem and it says that the last train will leave at 0:31. The first one on the next morning will leave at 4:55. I don't know if you are a partyanimal but you go out and celebrate till 4:30 and then take the train. Amsterdam and Enschede are pretty far from each other though so it ain't easy to travel very quick between them. It is also pretty far from where I live so I only know the details about the train trip. A cab or something is very expensive anyway.

What is the address of the website you checked for the trains. I've been looking myself and the website I looked at (ns.nl) says that the last train is 22:27, unless it has been updated recently.
I am toying with the idea of going to a bar until the early hours and catching the first train in the morning but don't know what the nightlife will be like on a Tuesday night in Enschede.

Hello Spurs, Maybe 9292ov.nl is helpful to you. I am travelling to Enschede 5 days a week, the last train usually leaves Enschede Drienerlo (train station right in front of the stadium) somewhere around 0.30h. I dont think the NS scheduled in any trains to Amsterdam later that night, So for you who plan on staying late, i would recommend bringing your tent and sleeping bag
Hopefully this is of any use to you! Have a great game this wednesday, may the best win!

Thanks for the tip of the website. It is still showing that the last train is 22:27hrs, the next train being 05:00 the following day.
A train at 0:30 would be ideal but I don't want to plan my trip around that without knowing it for certain.
Do you know where the 0:30 train terminates.

22.27, last train to Amsterdam Central. I recommend you either;
A) Stay the night in a hotel in Enschede, or
B) Hang out in one of the pubs in Enschede. I just don't know if they're open that long on thursdays or wednesdays (When's the match?). The first train leaves at about 05.00.
Anyway, glad to have you guys there. The more the merrier!

Hi everyone !
I will be in Twente also but I am not planning on staying in Enschede until midnight. I have contacted FC Twente about the transport back to Amsterdam. Hopefully I will hear from them by the end of the week. If there is no transport available, I will rent a coach back to Amsterdam Central. More details to follow.

All the best from Enschede, (currently London ) Need a good place to hang though until the match starts.

There are loads of good pubs in the 'west end' of London for daytime drinks. Before the match your options will be limited near The Lane as you aren,t a Spurs season ticket holder. You can go to the Irish club on Pretoria Road. Come out of White Hart Lane train station and go across the road and that is the end of Pretoria Road. Go up Pretoria for about 200m and the Irish club is on the left. Easy to find and good atmosphere.

this is my first post, i shall do the saying hello to everyone in the proper posting format however i am here as i am having slight travel with the trip back from Enschede. My group and I are scheduled to fly out of Amsterdam airport 9am Wednesday morning, we have severly punished the bloke who booked it however it is done now, so need to get back to Amsterdam from Enschede the night of the game. I saw in the previous posts that Eliz Amsterdam was looking at booking a coach, well you have four people here who are looking ot get back to Amsterdam and would get on board at Enschede.
If anyone else has any ideas i would be greatly apprecaited.
