Could a rather strange question about the Olympics be the title at the top of this article? Is the opening ceremony on Friday in Tokyo? It’s correct. BUT: The Orange Lionesses will indeed take part in the Olympic football tournament tomorrow.
After the opening ceremony of the Tokyo Olympic Games, Metro Dutch athletes participate every evening, the next day and at any time. All matches – Dutch time – take place day and night. There is no live Olympic sport on Dutch television in the evening. Then they rest comfortably on one ear in Japan.
1:00 p.m .: Orange Lionesses – Zambia
Until the opening ceremony, no Dutch Olympians from TeamNL will be seen at the Tokyo Olympics. Only orange footballers led by national coach Sarina Wegmann. Weigman says goodbye after the tournament. As the Dutch women’s water polo reaches the Olympic Village on Wednesday, the lionesses have already started. By the way, this does not happen in Tokyo, but about 400 kilometers away. Netherlands meets low-flying Zambia at 1 p.m. If all goes well, the Orange Lionesses can work on the goal difference.
I am always with them! Escape for a while! Come to the team! 🧡 https://t.co/9l4wSLVJ1w
Sherida spits July 20, 2021
Sadly, this could have happened without international record holder Sherida Spits. She injured her knee on Monday and will return to the Netherlands. Later, the Orange team will meet Brazil and China. The numbers 1 and 2 of the group qualify for the quarter-finals.

Are there more sports in Tokyo?
Several women’s football matches kick off on Wednesday July 21 during the Tokyo Olympics. They are Great Britain – Chile, China – Brazil, Sweden – America, Japan – Canada and Australia surpasses its “neighbor” New Zealand. The first men’s football will be played on Thursday.
The women will also play softball on Wednesday. But Orange is not involved in this. Do you really want to see it all? Softball Crusher (?) Canada – Mexico from 8:00 a.m. But most Dutch TVs don’t work for this. Many domestic workers do just that at 1 p.m. when the Orange Lionesses begin their Olympic adventure in Japan.
