The KNVB emphasized on Tuesday that all amateur football will continue in the next three weeks, even though the corona measures were tightened considerably by the government on Monday evening.
Prime Minister Mark Rutte and Minister Hugo de Jonge (Public Health) announced that contact sports will continue to be allowed, although there is no public welcome and canteens will be locked. The KNVB has now decided not to put a line through amateur football.
The football association says that it is safe and responsible to continue to play sports and that the sports umbrella organization NOC * NSF and all other sports associations in the Netherlands – they have also indicated that sports can continue to be done – are thinking the same.
“We are happy that we can continue to play football, but this has enormous financial consequences for the clubs and it hurts club life unwise”, says Jan-Dirk van der Zee on behalf of the KNVB.
“Unfortunately, we cannot escape these measures. We assume that, if everyone adheres to the new measures, the sports parks and canteens can safely reopen to the public in three weeks.”
Many sports clubs are heavily affected financially by the new corona measures. NOC * NSF is planning to call on government support again.
