FC Dutchmen Premier will continue to support our teams as we travel internationally over the years to come. All travel must be approved by the club administration before such plans are finalized. Good luck to the Battery Players, the club is very proud of you.

The trip is being funded by the Battery Players, but they are hoping for the support of the rest of our Dutchmen Families.
