Tilburg International Club


tíc is a non-profit association that provides social and educational activities for non-Dutch citizens living in and around Tilburg. Read more About tíc.


Guests are Welcome!


Guests are always welcome at any #TilburgInternationalClub event. It’s a great way to get a feel for the club, our members and the types of events you can come to expect as a member.  In the past, many of our guests have become members after a full tíc experience!

Many expats feel, even after living in the Netherlands for a longer period of time, never fully welcomed into Dutch society and therefore, never feel an affinity with the culture. A key upside to being a guest of tíc, is getting out to meet locals, learning about the country, better understanding social routines and customs all within a supportive group of individuals and families with like circumstances.

Want to know more about attending a tíc event as a guest? Check out our Guests Welcome page for more details.  Have questions or already interested in one of our upcoming events? Just let us know at til.int.club@gmail.com!

We look forward to meeting you!


Partnership with Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria in Tilburg

We are proud to announce our new partnership with Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria in Tilburg!

As part of our Welcome to Tilburg event, over 100 expats were all smiles and full bellies after the Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria experience in Tilburg.

In Jamie’s own words, “In my pizzerias you’ll find fresh, tasty hand-stretched pizzas that really hit the spot. Our restaurants are a celebration of the Italian way of eating – incredible food served up in a buzzing, warm and relaxed environment.”

Jamie’s pizzerias and restaurants have been steadily expanding internationally, and therefore, is a perfect fit for expats of the tilburg international club coming to Tilburg from around the world. The tilburg international club works hard to organise not only many fun and educational activities for its members, but also, to provide many advantages that make being a member of the club a beneficial additional to their lives abroad.

We are pleased that members of the tilburg international club will receive a 10% discount at Jamie Oliver’s Pizzeria in Tilburg when they show their valid membership card! We hope you plan a visit soon for a taste testing of your favourite pizza.

The Destil (Tilburg) Trappers are a professional ice hockey club based in Tilburg and were founded on 21 October 1938. They were officially recognized by the National Federation on 18 January 1939 and were crowned Eredivisie champions for the first time in the 1946-1947 season. While they have always played ​in the highest ​l​eague ​level ​in the ​Netherlands, it offer​ed​ little competition​.​ Beginning with the 2015-2016 season, t​he Trappers ​started play​ing​ in the German League, Oberliga Nord. ​(​You can see their season schedule here.) A big celebration was held for the team in the middle of town last year when they finished their 2017-2018 season in 1st place!

This year, we will go see the Destil Trappers vs. Hannover Indians. There are 20 available seats. Tickets will be reserved on a first come first serve basis!! In case you’re wondering, this is a great activity for kids, as well! (The crowd is well behaved and the game is action-packed!!)

More details on when and where exactly to meet will be sent closer to the game itself. After the game, we hope to raise a glass together to celebrate their victory…
