Organiser

The Brabant Open is a joint project of three football clubs: RKSV Prinses Irene (Nistelrode), H.V.C.H. (Heesch) and VV Berghem Sport (Oss). The clubs have a collective membership of a few thousand members and more than 100 youth teams.

Sport facillity

The Brabant Open tournament takes place at three locations near Oss (Berghem, Heesch, Nistelrode), all within a radius of 10 kilometres. Each location offers 5-star sports grounds with a total of nearly 20 pitches. It also has excellent facilities, including a main field with a grandstand, a spacious clubhouse and special stalls for the tournament.

Oss region

The Brabant Open takes place around the provincial capital of Oss, 20 kilometres from Nijmegen, in Berghem (10,000 inhabitants), Heesch (13,000 inhabitants) and Nistelrode (6,000 inhabitants). The modern sport grounds are located within a radius of four kilometres in a beautiful rural area where people like to get right behind their local clubs.   

Den Bosch

In 's-Hertogenbosch (Den Bosch) there is an incredible array of things to do and experience. For real culture vultures there are museums, boat trips and town tours. Shop-a-holics can really let loose in the various shopping streets, and there are also many cosy restaurants and bars. Don't forget to try the local speciality, the Bossche bol, a large cream profiterole in a chocolate shell. Den Bosch is located approximately 15 kilometres from Oss.

Oss Wave Pool

Oss wave pool is a large covered swimming and wave pool in the centre of Oss. The pool has 3 different water slides, ranging from 6 to 100 metres, and the 'kamikaze slide'. There is also a pool bar and a small restaurant.
