Netherlands Fans Have Taken Over Budapest

Published

For a few hours before the last 16 match against the Czech Republic, Netherlands fans have made Budapest their own. They have filled the streets with their ‘Oranje’ shirts, practically turning it into their capital city.

If there’s been a host city that has stood out so far at the Euros, it’s without a doubt been Budapest. Their Puskas Arena has been the only stadium to host a full capacity of supporters in every match.

This is because Hungary is one of the countries that has best withstood the effects of COVID-19 and Prime Minister Orban has typically taken a relaxed approach with restrictions. For that reason, streets can be seen filled with people, just like they were a year-and-a-half ago. A throwback to more normal times.

Netherlands fans filled up Andrassy Avenue, of the Magyar capital, in the build-up to the Euros last 16 match against the Czech Republic. Budapest, for a four hours at least, appeared to be the Dutch capital.

Orange shirts, red, white and blue flags and a celebratory atmosphere were all ingredients of scenes which barely look plausible given the ongoing pandemic. Supporters were without masks and weren’t respecting any social distancing measures, given that these two elements aren’t mandatory in Hungary.
