Fixtures out next week i think but not sure when Netherlands will announce their 'home' venues. Let's just hope it is just a rumour. Was all ready to plan and book a nice 3 night trip for it. I do like pasties but ain't going to watch the game in bloody Cornwall!!!!!!!

I don't understand this at all. I have travelled to Amstelveen for the last three years and thoroughly enjoyed. I have just written to kcnb requesting confirmation. And if they are to be playing their 'home' games in England in 2013, the reasoning behind it. I'll keep you posted of any reply.

I've heard on another forum that the counties don't want the expense of travelling to The Netherlands.

It now looks as if my previous post was wide of the mark and that the Truro fixture may just be a one-off:

You need to be careful casting dispersions on all things Cornish. They get very twitchy about it.

And definatelt don't mention that they have to pay to get into Devon.

Harvey, you are correct. The truro game is indeed a one-off. Other than the Nottingham game all other home games will be in the Netherlands. I have received a reply from kcnb confirming.

Well cheesed off, never played them before so was looking forward to a nice little trip over to the Netherlands. Will not be going to Truro (it's like Wimbledon playing in Milton Keynes). And unless the ECB change their minds 2013 will be the last season Netherlands are involved in the competition. Not happy!!
