Left Hoegaarden very early in the morning for Amsterdam. Arrived at 9am so we had an entire day to taste the atmosphere from the Europa League final.

Visited the beautiful city center and a few pubs before making it back to the ground to see all the activities around the stadium. I was surprised by all the possible activities as this was my first European final.

I loved the way the Amsterdam ArenA was decorated on the outside and fell even more in love with the inside. It was my second visit to the ArenA as I already watched Ajax – PSV (click here for review) last season.

The game was not the best I’ve ever seen with Benfica having the better chances and Chelsea scoring their chances to take the Europa League cup to London.
