Dutch sports clubs sell alcohol to underage kids

1 May 2018

Underage teenagers can order beer from most sports clubs in the Netherlands without any problems. A clear majority of sports club canteens do not check IDs before serving alcohol to young people, according to a study commissioned by the government, NOS reports.

Over 82% of football clubs sell alcohol to underage teenagers. Less than 19% of hockey clubs check IDs. Tennis clubs and sports halls did not perform much better, with 24 and 25% respectively checking IDs.
