Charity match for victims 1953 Flood which costed 1835 Dutch lives. This match is one of the most legendaric one ever played by a Dutch side. This match was final encouragement to introduce professional soccer in the Netherlands, which started 14 August 1954.
This Dutch team was the strongest one that represented Netherlands in the 1950-54 era.
Initially French FA invited the Dutch national team for a charilty match 12 March 1953 at Parc des Princes, but NL already arranged an extra match with Denmark on 7 March in Rotterdam, which was aslo a charity match for the victims of the Flood that tempested Southwestern part of Netherland some weeks before. KNVB turned down the French offer. Officially because of a full agenda, but de facto they fear a very heavy defeat.
Thus Dutch professional players from French clubs asked FFF if they could play France. KNVB chairman Karel Lotsy tried everything this match did not took place, he even ordered the FFF not to play the official Dutch national anthem before the match, but the French had other thoughts.
Even though not an official international match this is one of the most legendary matches ever played by a Dutch team. Most important objective of this match: raising money for the victims of the Flood. The players of the Dutch profesionals also offered KNVB to play a charity match against full Dutch national team. KNVB turned down that offer as Mr. Lotsy said in NL not a single dog was interested in professional soccer. Another reason KNVB turned down that offer was that they fear heavy defeat for Dutch team that used to play at the time.
