Football is the perfect medium for connecting people. The Eredivisie and 18 Eredivisie clubs are at the heart of society, with involvement reaching beyond the gates of the stadium. Together with the 18 clubs and the Friends Lottery (Vriendenloterij), the Eredivisie is committed to making a positive impact every day by working towards a healthier, more inclusive and stronger society. Read more about the joint initiatives below.
The Friends Lottery has been the Eredivisie’s social partner since 2005. Together, we are committed to raising funds for social projects that contribute to a healthy and strong society. You can also play for your favourite Eredivisie club. This means 40% of your ticket will go to social projects of your Eredivisie club.
