“It was a bit to come, but they are still very far-reaching measures”, says Jan de Jong of the Eredivisie CV, which defends the interests of the 18 clubs from the highest division.
“The cabinet wants to limit travel movements in the country and so there is no public in the stadiums. While we have received compliments from Prime Minister Rutte in recent weeks about the way football has handled and everything is going on in the stadiums. “
“There is also no scientific evidence that football with an audience leads to more corona cases, but nevertheless no one is allowed in anymore.”
“For football this is extremely sour. We have invested a lot of money in measures and protocols to make sure that everything runs smoothly. We do not want to be excluded from society, but it will be even more difficult for football than it already was.”
“A good thing in case of an accident is that there will be one international weekend in the next three weekends. Each club will therefore miss 1 match with the home crowd, but that is again income that will be missed. That makes the financial shortage at the clubs bigger again.”
“The frustration in football is great”, Jan de Jong tells our colleagues from the NOS.
“Fortunately, corona thrives much less in certain regions than in other regions and especially among those clubs there is a lot of disbelief that they are now also being affected. Regional measures must be possible, right? For them that is difficult to accept.”
“Anyway: if everyone follows the rules, I have good hope that an audience will be able to enter again in three weeks.”
