The board of the Nederlandse Korfball Bond (NKB) launched the idea of organizing a demonstration match of korfball at the 1920 Olympic Games. Baron van Tuyll van Serooskerken, as an IOC member and patron of the NKB, was asked to write a letter to the Organizing Committee of the 1920 Olympic Games about the possibility of organizing a demonstration match, Initially the answer was negative, but he persisted and a game was scheduled. A korfball demonstration match with two teams was played in the Olympic Stadium at Antwerpen on 22 August 1920 at 1400 (2 PM). Both were Dutch teams, one representing Amsterdam and one representing Zuid-Holland (South Holland), with Zuid-Holland winning the match, 2-0.
