The Johan Cruyff Shield is the annual curtain-raiser for the Dutch Eredivisie season. This year’s final will see defending champions Feyenoord take on PSV Eindhoven at De Kuip in Rotterdam on Friday, August 5th.
The match is scheduled to kick off at 6 pm GMT (11:30 pm IST). It will be broadcast live in the Netherlands on Fox Sports 1 and Ziggo Sport Select. Unfortunately, there is no live broadcast of the match in India. However, you can watch the match highlights on YouTube after the full-time whistle.
Feyenoord will be looking to win their third Johan Cruyff Shield in a row. They defeated PSV in the 2021 and 2022 finals. PSV, on the other hand, will be hoping to avenge their losses in the last two finals.
The two teams are evenly matched on paper. Feyenoord have a slight edge in terms of home advantage, but PSV have a better recent record against their rivals. The match is sure to be a close contest, and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top.
Here are the details of the match:
- Date: Friday, August 5th
- Time: 6 pm GMT (11:30 pm IST)
- Venue: De Kuip, Rotterdam
- TV channels: Fox Sports 1 and Ziggo Sport Select (Netherlands)

Feyenoord and PSV are evenly matched on paper, so it is difficult to predict who will win the match. However, I think Feyenoord has a slight edge in terms of home advantage. I am predicting a 2-1 win for Feyenoord.
