In late July, ADO reported that one player and one office worker had passed a positive test and quarantined. After a subsequent test round, another positive test was taken with one of the players. The person in question – ADO does not specify who it is for privacy reasons – has been placed in home quarantine and will not have any contact with his colleagues for the time being.
The number 17 of the previous Eredivisie season will, however, ‘just’ kick off at 5 p.m. After consultation with opponent Almere City and the KNVB, it was decided to continue the match. The meeting in Almere has a separate set-up and lasts a total of 120 minutes: the first and second half both consist of 45 minutes of play, 15 minutes of rest and another 15 minutes of play. This allows all players to take action for at least one hour.
ℹ️ One player was tested positive for the corona virus in the test round for Almere City FC – ADO Den Haag. The exhibition game can, according to the KNVB protocol and in consultation with the club from Almere, continue.#almADO
