Welcome to the website of the DBSV Red Socks, we are the student out- and indoor football association of Maastricht. If you have played for years or never played before you are welcome to try out and join our teams! Feel free to check us out on FB or email us at secretaris@dbsvredsocks.nl

Open practices August/September 2023

Time for open practices with DBSV! Want to join the largest student football association in Maastricht? Now is your chance! Use the link to access the sign-up forms here: https://docs.google.com/…/1FAIpQLSfItY2hBRN…/viewform…

We will be hosting open practices/tryouts for the 23/24 season. If both you and the coach agree you are a fit for the team then you will be asked to register with that team. Please do not automatically sign up with DBSV without being in agreement with the respective team coaches.

Open practices are free for everyone to join who is considering becoming a member. It gives you a chance to meet our members and form an impression of what it is like to be a part of DBSV. We have two open practice phases, one at the beginning of each semester (September and January/February). Keep an eye out for our upcoming September open practices! You can check our Instagram page @dbsvredsocks for info as well. Message us if you have any questions!

We will have activities on the select dates shown in the post as a little get together with new and old faces of DBSV after the open practices 🙂

Can’t wait to see you all there.


Selection players who want to join DBSV and be eligible to play matches during the first half of the season must register with UM sports and DBSV before September 1st. Therefore, we advise that you sign-up for the open practices held before September.

Why is this?

Selection players might be playing in Category A if they are chosen to play in Team 1. To make sure you can play official matches as a DBSV 1 player, we must know that you want to join and have registered with both UM sports and DBSV BEFORE September 1st. This is so that our board members can assure that your transfer request with the KNVB (The Royal Dutch Football Association) is complete by September 1st.

This is a rule decided by KNVB therefore any player that does not complete a transfer and registration will not be allowed to play official matches for the selection teams of DBSV.

If you miss this registration deadline, you can still play for DBSV, however, will only be able to play matches for teams registered in Category B (teams 2 through 6) until February 2024. After this, you can submit a transfer request to play for selection teams if you wish.

p.s.: If you are registered within the Netherlands already, this does not apply to you!
