Roda JC Kerkrade Tickets
Roda JC Kerkrade - Down but not defeated
Though the club battled bravely against relegation at the back end of 2017/18, it was to be a losing fight. Though down via the relegation playoffs, the club was not defeated, and stood as favourites to go straight up into the Eredivisie ahead of the 2018/19 Eerste Divisie season. Because of that, people continue to buy and sell Roda JC Kerkrade tickets on StubHub at a rate of knots, as the 'Pride of the South' aims to rejoin the likes of Ajax and PSV in the Dutch top flight.
Eerste Divisie season crucial for Roda JC
The summer of 2018 saw a slew of outgoings at the club, and in an effort to bolster the defence, two new central defenders arrived - Niels Verbugh and Richard Jensen. The latter comes from an FC Twente side that has fallen on hard times, despite being the 2010 Eredivisie League winners. At the very least, Roda JC Kerkrade were able to keep hold of their captain ahead of the new season. Though no longer a 'young' player, he is very experienced in being a part of a promotion-winning side, having moved up to the Eredivisie three times. Club manager Robert Molenaar is also the ideal figure to lead a team back into the Dutch top flight. With playing experience in the English Premier League during the 1990s, he knows exactly how passionate fans can be, and his focus lies solely on bringing the good times back to Parkstad Limburg Stadion.
Roda JC Kerkrade are favourites to climb back up
Even though the relegation of 2018 was the club's second in four years, Roda JC Kerkrade tickets remain in demand for those who buy and sell via StubHub. The club has existed in its current form since 1962, after a period of thirty-six years that saw four teams merge over time. With roots in coal mining, the club has always had a reputation for passionate fans that want their club to win at all costs. However, their appetite for success was not to be satiated until 1974, when the modern-day 'Pride of the South' reached the top flight. They settled in surprisingly well and got to the KNVB Cup final a year later, however they got no further than the first round during their maiden voyage to Europe. The 1990s proved much more successful. Under the stewardship of Nol Hendricks, the club finished second in the 1994/95 Eredivisie, with KNVB Cup wins in 1997 and 2000. That era also saw the club's best European performance, which was a run to the Cup Winners Cup quarter-finals in 1998. The turn of the century marked a decline in fortune, but those who buy Roda JC Kerkrade tickets on StubHub may yet witness another surge in the coming years!
