Willem II will experiment with supporters’ noises in the stadium during Saturday’s home game against VVV-Venlo. At the request of the supporters, chants and songs blare through the speakers in the Koning Willem II Stadium.
“The supporters and club miss the joint match experience. To return that experience somewhat, supporters sounds during the match that were recorded at a home game last season”, Willem II writes on Friday. site.
Captain Jordens Peters is happy with the fans’ action. “It is a great initiative from our fanatic supporters to give us in an alternative way the support that we are used to but now have to miss. We know that we are supported by thousands of supporters from home, but now we can also hear indirectly. “
Willem II decides after the match against VVV-Venlo whether the experiment deserves to be followed. The game between the current numbers fourteen and eleven in the rankings starts on Saturday at 7 p.m.
Since October, when the games in the Eredivisie had to be finished without an audience due to the corona measures, supporter sounds have been used on television. The players cannot hear that on the field.
The clubs hope that the public will be welcome in the stadiums again in January. For that reason, the top players between Ajax, PSV, Feyenoord and AZ are only on the program after the winter break.
