On Saturday 23 August, the NTR television programme College Tour will be recording an episode with Holland’s best left foot. For once, special guest footballer Arjen Robben will spend an evening sitting ‘on the bench’. The programme will be recorded at the Willem Alexander Sports Centre (Zernike Campus).
Arjen Robben, born in Bedum, close to Groningen, stole the show during the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Largely thanks to his dribbles, passes and incredible speed, the Netherlands managed to achieve a well-deserved third place.
The episode of College Tour featuring Robben will be broadcast on 29 August. You can apply to be in the audience (students only) via the NTR website.
