ADO Den Haag will take on Sparta Rotterdam in the first round of the TOTO KNVB Cup at home, the draw showed on Saturday evening. Another nice poster is the Limburg derby between Roda JC and Fortuna Sittard in Kerkrade.
FC Utrecht starts the cup with an away match against FC Dordrecht. The Domstedelingen reached the final last season, but the match against Feyenoord was canceled due to the corona crisis.
Willem II will visit the winner of the meeting between DOVO and DVS, Vitesse will play against HHC Hardenberg or GVVV and FC Groningen will meet in Tiel TEC. Other notable posters are FC Twente-De Graafschap, RKC-Waalwijk-SC Cambuur and Go Ahead Eagles-NAC Breda.
Ajax, AZ, Feyenoord and PSV only come in in the second round. These clubs are exempt from participating in the opening round, because they play in the Champions League or the Europa League.
Various amateur clubs are still competing in a diptych in qualifying for a ticket for the first round. The first leg of this has already been completed. The returns are scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday next week.
The matches in the first round of the KNVB Cup will be played on 26, 27 and 28 October. The final is on April 18, 2021 in De Kuip.
