Storyline

[Season 1] This Dutch version of "Soccer wives" follows several hot footballers of Heros, an Amsterdam top team and their family lives. Star player Italo Ferrero's fiancée Solange is used to being materially spoiled rotten by her gorgeous and horny stallion, but also put in her subordinate place; she covers for her fat brother Mikey, a robber, but Italo finds out and forbids any contact with her bothersome trailer-family. Newcomer Danny Doornbos' steady partner -soon married, under national press coverage to pay for his unfortunate gambling attempts- Renske Veldman wasn't prepared at all for life in the big league -he's no longer an available 'husband' on call- nor for the perks of his high income... Top scorer Jeffrey Woesthoff's wife Melanie uses her female charms to 'persuade' the club chairman in his office to keep hubby on a good spot; their son Dylan proves early maturity- in bed... Coach Arjan Duivendrecht's wife Liz demands he keeps his promise to stop now, after 20 years and ... Written by KGF Vissers

Funny and thrilling look on soccer wives
8 March 2007 | by soeberSee all my reviews

If you like "Gooische Vrouwen" and "Desperate Housewives" you will love Voetbalvrouwen. The series is almost a spoof on the clichés of soccer wives: Blond, not too smart and complete shopaholics. This series delivers it all. Newcomer Renske goes from the province to Big City Amsterdam because her boyfriend will play for Champions league club Heros. She is faced with new morals when she meets three other soccer wives. It is hilarious when they have discussions on money, husbands and having a job on your own. The series looks glossy, no expenses were saved: big cars, huge homes, and soccer sequences that where shot in Utrecht Stadium. I liked it a lot because the show does not take itself too seriously. It is funny most the time and dramatic as well in its cliffhangers. Can't wait to see the next episode.
