With just 81 days left until the country faces off against Italy at this summer's Euros, the largest online ticket agency in the Netherlands is charging $2,148 per ticket to Holland's match against the World Champions. The same goes for the game against France, played eight days later. Seems as good a time as any to refinance the house.
No word on how much it'll cost to watch the Dutch play against Romania, but I imagine still a bit pricey on any budget. Not long ago, in a report filed on February 28th, the AP claimed that a ticket to the Germany v. Poland match would run about $1,500. And in an example of how far the dollar has fallen, a seat to watch Holland v. France would cost $1,285. That's almost 60% less than it would cost today, three weeks on.
