Football association KNVB has postponed the cup matches involving amateur teams to December 1 and 2. If they are still not allowed to play football, the 26 amateur clubs that have qualified for the main tournament will be excluded from further participation.
All first round games were to be played on October 26, 27 and 28, but amateur clubs are not allowed to play games or even train as a team for the next four weeks. That is why at the end of this month only the cup matches in which clubs from professional football meet each other.
The ban on team training for all amateur athletes applies for four weeks. When this measure is extended, the cup tournament for the amateurs is over. In that case, the professional clubs they would play against will automatically advance to the next round. A possible financial compensation for the amateurs has not yet been discussed, according to a spokesperson for the KNVB.
Afraid of delay
FC Groningen director Wouter Gudde said on Wednesday afternoon that he just wanted to play the cup match against Tiel. A different opinion than TEC chairman Johan Verweij, who wanted the match postponed. ‘The health of our players and staff comes first. In addition, it is of course a sporting drama when Arjen Robben comes to Tiel with FC Groningen, but nobody witnesses it, ‘he said.
Gudde is afraid that the program will get tangled up due to the delay. ‘If we postpone now, I’m afraid we could get into trouble later. Because if you postpone this game now, you have no guarantee at all that it can be played later. ‘
The definitive date of the cup match between FC Groningen and TEC from Tiel will be announced later. So it will be at least December 1 or 2.
