Torpedo Kattenburg

Torpedo Kattenburg

A very interesting story coming in from our friends at Copa.

After 350 years of Navy activities, VOC-trade and many (567) constructed ships, it’s time to bring ‘the beautiful game’ to the Kattenburg Navy complex in downtown Amsterdam. Torpedo Kattenburg, a football club in formation, is the brainchild of Dutchmen Martijn Wuite and Lucien Burm.​ They discovered a football pitch on the now defunct Navy complex and it’s their dream to use it as their new home ground.

The enthusiasm and interest of future playing members from the Kattenburg neighborhood in Amsterdam has been overwhelming. We support them in their dream and asked designer Angelo Trofa to design a Navy inspired kit which is visible in the crest, colours, waves pattern and details of the shirt.

So, is this a new FC United of Manchester or is it a St. Pauli, Hamburg story? I look forward to following it.
