Born in Amsterdam, van Duivenbode made his senior debut on 3 May 1964 for hometown club Ajax against Sparta but was deemed not hard enough by manager Rinus Michels after they lost the 1969 European Cup Final to Milan. He subsequently left the club for arch rivals Feyenoord, with whom he did win international silverware. He was the third Ajax player in history to join Feyenoord after Eddy Pieters Graafland and Henk Groot and also scored the only goal in his first Klassieker in a Feyenoord-shirt, on 2 November 1969.
Van Duivenbode made his debut for the Netherlands in a September 1968 FIFA World Cup qualification match against Luxembourg and earned a total of 5 caps, scoring no goals. His final international was an October 1970 UEFA Euro qualification match against Yugoslavia.
