All The Lowdown On Vitesse
Friday, 17th Jul 2015 12:44
Saints could not have had a harder draw with Vitesse being the highest ranked non seeded teams, but who are they ?
Vitesse or as they are sometimes known Vitesse Arnhem are based as you would guess in Arnhem in Holland and they play in the 25,500 capacity Gelre Dome. It features a retractable pitch and a roof.
Ronald Koeman managed the club from 1st January 2000 to 2nd December 2001.
They are experienced Europa league campaigners and last year lost in the 3rd qualifying round to Romanian side Petrolul Plioesti 32 on agregate.
Vitesse average home attendance is around 20,000 so they do not seem to be interested in stadium expansion anytime soon.
Vitesse finished 5th in the Eridivisie last season, 1 point behind Feyenoord in 4th, but 30 points behind winners PSV.

Lying in bed awake on Friday night I was struck by ‘the fear’. By around midnight it had consumed me, and all of my optimism for the season ahead was gone.
