In anticipation of the Euro 2024 Semi-Final match between the Netherlands and England, an estimated 85,000 Dutch supporters are expected to travel to Germany. These fans will cross the border tomorrow for a short journey to Dortmund, aiming to support their national team. This influx is expected to turn the city into a vibrant “Orange” atmosphere, a hallmark of Dutch fans.

On the other side, approximately 40,000 English supporters are also expected to gather in Dortmund. This massive convergence of fans presents a significant challenge for German security officials, who are preparing for the influx.

As these thousands of supporters flood into Dortmund, it is predicted that 1.2 million bottles of beer will be consumed in just one day. The sheer volume of fans and the expected beer consumption highlight the scale of the event and the festive yet challenging environment anticipated in the city.
