The amateur competitions will not be stopped in the coming weeks, the KNVB says in response to the additional corona measures announced this week. The canteens must remain closed for the time being and there may not be an audience on the line, but the matches will continue.
The football association issued a statement one day after Prime Minister Mark Rutte’s press conference. “The fact that these new measures have been taken, despite compliments of the Prime Minister for the sport, is a huge blow to all associations and the volunteers who work very hard to create a safe situation for their members”, says director amateur football Jan Dirk. van der Zee.
Almost all amateur clubs are hit hard by the measures: the income from the canteens are of vital importance, Van der Zee is well aware. “Unfortunately, we cannot escape these measures. We assume that if everyone complies with the new measures, the sports parks and canteens can safely reopen to the public in three weeks.”
The KNVB also hopes that it can accommodate the affected clubs. The football association, together with the umbrella NOC * NSF, is entering into a conclave with the government, in the hope of enforcing an additional support package.
