After NAC Breda-SC Cambuur, another Kitchen Champion Division match has been moved from Friday to next week. Helmond Sport cannot play against De Graafschap due to multiple corona infections.
In consultation with the KNVB, it has been decided to move the game Helmond Sport-De Graafschap to next Monday. The starting time is not yet known.
A test round on Wednesday resulted in several positive results at Helmond Sport. “For this reason, the game against De Graafschap cannot take place tomorrow”, the Brabant club wrote on Thursday site.
Remarkably reported De Graafschap a little earlier on Thursday four positive corona cases among “employees” of the club. At that time, the team from Doetinchem was still planning to play on Friday, because “everywhere within the club the one and a half meter rule is observed”.
Last week, De Graafschap’s home game with NAC was already postponed due to infections in Breda. De Graafschap coach Mike Snoei then wondered aloud whether the corona rules at NAC were strictly observed.
General director Mattijs Manders of the Brabant club called Snoei ‘s statements “awkward and a bit inappropriate”. “Let’s hope it doesn’t never happen, but it could also happen tomorrow at De Graafschap,” he added.
