"Naturally, I'm very excited to be involved with the Amsterdam Sevens," said Visser.
"I've seen first-hand the work that has gone on behind the scenes and it's all set to be a wonderful event."
"Hosting the Women's Sevens World Series is an important boost to Rugby in the Netherlands, and I'm expecting to see great crowds on the weekend of May 17 and 18."
Rugby has been growing rapidly in the Netherlands. As Visser hosted a training camp for more than 150 youngsters in Amsterdam, the Nederlandse Rugby Bond (NRB) welcomed the 10,000th registered player in the country, 13 year old Adriaan Have.
“The progress is positive and very pleasing from a Dutch Rugby Union perspective," said NRB President Willem de Jong.
"Events like the upcoming Amsterdam Sevens will really encourage young people to take up the sport, and that can only be a good thing."
Twelve international sides from across the globe will compete in the last round of the inaugural Series on May 17 and 18.
And with Rugby World Cup Sevens 2013 taking place just over a month later in Moscow, the Amsterdam round of the Series will be vitally important as teams prepare for the trip to Russia.
Series leaders New Zealand are eight points ahead of England, with world champions Australia a further eight points behind going into the final round.
