Dutch Tour of Dutch Antilles 1952

Before the 1952 Olympic Games in Finland, where they lost their only match 1-2 to Turkey on July 21st in Lahti, the Dutch Antilles team toured the Netherlands, playing against a few club sides and a Dutch selection (as well as the French amateur side during a short trip to France).

Prior to the 1938 World Cup, the team of the Dutch East Indies made a similar trip; six years before, a Curaçao selection had been the first visitors from the West Indies to tour the Netherlands, two years before Surinam.
