How to get there
Conveniently situated in northern central Europe, Belgium and the Netherlands are within easy reach from across the continental mainland.
And visitors to Euro 2000 from the British Isles have a host of options at their disposal to get to the host countries, courtesy of a short trip across the English Channel.
It is just a question of which route to choose - air, sea, road or rail.
Schiphol (Amsterdam) and Zaventem (Brussels) are both major international airports.
In addition there are several regional airports: Bierset (Liège), Charleroi, Deurne and Ostend (Bruges) in Belgium. Maastricht, Eindhoven and Rotterdam in The Netherlands.
Services to Amsterdam Schipol Airport from the UK:
Belgium and The Netherlands have a very well developed network of motorways, and each host region has an extensive transport and taxi network.
For those who are driving though, remember to drive on the right.
The sea makes up long stretches of the Dutch and Belgian borders with Rotterdam and Antwerp - both international ports.
Ferry services run to and from Ostend and Zeebrugge in Belgium and the Hook of Holland, Ijmuiden (near Amsterdam) and Europoort (near Rotterdam) in The Netherlands.
Belgium and The Netherlands boast one of the most compact rail networks in the world. Trains, surface as well as underground, often take the traveller right to the stadia's turnstiles.
Of course, Eurostar runs a regular service from Waterloo right to the centre of Brussels.
Eurolines (+ SSS International) from London Victoria directly to many cities in Belgium and The Netherlands.
