A player from Heracles Almelo misses the start of the Eredivisie on Sunday because he tested positive for the corona virus on Friday. The home game against ADO Den Haag will continue as usual.
Heracles does not reveal the name of the person concerned for privacy reasons. The Tukkers report Twitter only that because of mild complaints he had already decided to stay at home as a precaution and that he is also in quarantine for the time being.
All Eredivisie and Kitchen Champion Division clubs must have their players and staff tested for COVID-19 48 hours prior to a game. With a positive result, the person is not welcome to the game.
The game is canceled if a team has less than thirteen players at its disposal as a result of contamination. That has not yet been the case in the Kitchen Champion Division and this weekend also not in the Eredivisie.
In the preparation, a number of teams from the Eredivisie and Kitchen Champion also faced problems due to the corona virus. As a result, some exhibition games were canceled, because testing was not yet mandatory.
Heracles-ADO starts on Sunday at 2.30 p.m. in Erve Asito and is led by referee Sander van der Eijk. Due to the corona measures, the stadium is only one third full of spectators.
