The Dutch Football Association (KNVB) said on Tuesday that spectators can return to the stands as early as this month.
KNVB reports that the top and second class championships will be held from April 23rd to 25th. There may already be limited supporters in this round, but the exact supporters will be determined by local authorities.
We maintain close contact with the government so that spectators can return to the stadium. We try to speed up this process as much as possible. This is a very important step, KNVB said.
The rule requires that Druckers must undergo a negative coronavirus test within no more than 24 hours and maintain a distance of at least one and a half meters from their peers in the stadium. According to the original plan, 7,500 people will watch Ajax Amsterdam and AZ Alkmaar live in the upcoming popular weekend game, and Feyenoord will be able to host Vitesse in front of 6,500 fans.
On March 27th, in the Netherlands, the World Cup qualifier against Latvians was tested in front of 5,000 spectators. In a joint experiment between the Dutch Federation and the government, an attempt was made to model the epidemic of the coronavirus to simulate how much exposure would occur in this situation.
