On Monday afternoon, the KNVB spoke via a video conference with professional football clubs about the tightened measures. Prime Minister Mark Rutte is expected to announce at his press conference at 7 p.m. that all sports matches must be played without an audience for the time being because of the rising corona figures.

KNVB was already surprised by the warning

That measure will take effect on Tuesday at 6 p.m., sources from The Hague told Press. This means that the Kitchen Champion Division matches Young Ajax-Excelsior and Telstar-FC Den Bosch on Monday evening are the last matches with an audience for the time being.

The measures taken are evaluated after three weeks. This means that the next two rounds of play in the Eredivisie and the coming international period will be played in empty stadiums.

The previous season was not completed due to the outbreak of COVID-19. At the start of the new season at the beginning of this basket, spectators were again welcome to a limited extent, with due observance of the mandatory 1.5 meters distance. Fans were also not allowed to sing or shout.

With the exception of a few incidents, this went satisfactorily, according to the KNVB. It did not go well for Feyenoord and for fans of Willem II on a square in Tilburg.

The union said on Saturday that it was very surprised by a warning from Minister Tamara van Ark (Medical Care): “We have good agreements with the government about how we can organize football safely and responsibly in stadiums.”

“We have successfully organized more than a hundred competitions. The evaluations of the police and municipalities show that supporters adhere very well to the rules,” the KNVB. “We have seen two incidents out of a hundred matches, one of which was outside the stadium and was therefore not linked to the protocols that apply in the stadiums.”

The KNVB does not want to respond to the measure yet. The union wants to wait for the press conference on Monday evening and then come up with an official position.
