Slogan van de missie


Words of Welcome Welcome to Miami, bienvenidos a Miami, hartelijk welkom!

There are people from all walks of life in the ‘magic city’ of Miami, but many of my conversations start on the same topic: sports. The Dutch women’s final against the United States in the soccer World Cup, Max Verstappen coming to Austin, Frank de Boer’s successes with Atlanta United, or Xander Bogaerts’ achievements with the Boston Red Sox. Americans love sports and they share our appreciation of these Dutch icons. This makes me proud. Not only because sports connect our countries, but also because it opens up so many business opportunities for the Netherlands. Towards the 2026 Soccer World Cup, but also as a result of the millions of Americans who practice sports every day. For fun, competitively, or as part as a healthy lifestyle. The wide range of companies joining this mission shows how broad the Dutch expertise in the sports sector is. In the United States there is great interest in the innovation taking place in the Netherlands in areas such as sports management, the construction of state of the art sports facilities, entertainment, training methods, and many more. This is why I am honored to welcome the delegation led by Orange Sports Forum to Miami and why the Consulate General of the Netherlands in Miami is proud to contribute to the program. The Dutch are big in sport and sport is a strongpoint of the Dutch economy. That also makes sport a great asset for the Netherlands internationally. I look forward to welcoming you to Miami, now and in the future. I hope that this mission will help you make many useful connections and that you will find this fascinating city as inspiring as I do. Ruth Emmerink Consul General of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in Miami

Foreword It is with pride that we embark on this Dutch Sports Mission to the Soccerex in Miami. We are proud to be joined by a business delegation consisting of more than 10 companies with wide-ranging knowledge of and expertise in sport, innovation, leisure and entertainment. This mission focusses on soccer and innovation. Soccerex has been bringing together the global football industry to network in a unique commercial environment for over twenty years. The Soccerex USA offers many opportunities for companies, since the growing attention and professionalising of soccer in the middle and northern parts of America. Of course, the FIFA World Cup 2026 will take an important role in this growth. The World Cup 2026 will be played in the United States, Mexico and Canada and it will be the 23rd World Cup, in which a record number of 48 countries will participate. So, this brings many opportunities for companies related to soccer. The Soccerex is well known for its qualitative high standard exhibitions and visitors. There will also be a program with excellent speakers and experts regarding soccer, OSF has experience with Soccerex, thanks to the participation at the Soccerex in China (2018, 2019). OSF is a wellconnected network of companies, organisations and institutions representing Dutch expertise and know-how in a variety of sports-related sectors. The participants in the mission are highly experienced sports professionals. We are convinced that this initiative will produce a number of fruitful and long-lasting partnerships in the United States for Dutch companies. We wish all participants a successful sports business mission and of course a very pleasant stay in Miami!

Odensestraat 19, 7559 JM Hengelo, The Netherlands

Gender equality is not a women’s issue but should concern and fully engage men and women, boys and girls. We are convinced to shape a better future if we get the chance to develop the full potential of talent and make them aware of the power of diversity. Football is in many cases worldwide the magnifying glass of society and is still a very male dominated domain. The FootballEquals Academy is worldwide the first professional academy where boys and girls are mixed based on talent instead of gender. The academy combines professional football education programs with unique physical research methods in partnership with knowledge institutes and high-tech companies. We develop innovative training methods and principals based on the outcome. In contrary to other professional football academies our talents keep membership of their own local clubs so they can also use the professional experience during the training and matches at home. This way we don’t only influence the player, but also have an impact on clubs in our region. Coaches of the local clubs are structurally invited to share knowledge around the players. The FootballEquals Foundation aims to enrol more (inter)national academies in the coming years. Mary Kok-Willemsen

| Mr. Tibo van de Zand

The Jits Bakker Collection Foundation was founded by the renowned artist Jits Bakker himself, to protect his legacy and make it publicly accessible, inspire people and to touch people’s emotions. One of his creations, the “Slide Tackle”, was the result of a unique cooperation and creative friendship in 1985 between Johan Cruijff, one of the very best Dutch soccer players that ever played the game and Jits bakker, a world acclaimed Dutch sculptor who during his 60 years career focused a very important part of his work on sports and music. For this, he was posthumously awarded the prestigious “Sports and Art Award” in 2014 by the International Olympic Committee (IOC). By creating the “Slide Tackle”, you can say that Jits Bakker and Johan Cruijff captured: “Soccer Cast In Bronze”. During the 1986 World Soccer Cup in Mexico, a copy of the bronze sculpture was shipped by KLM Royal Dutch Airlines to Mexico City and auctioned off on Mexican TV. The $ 500,000.00 winning bid was donated in its entirety to “Nuestros Pequeños Hermanos“, the largest orphanage in Mexico City. Herman Vonhof
