The youth competition from U9 to U17 can start again from June 6th. The KNCB has already shared the schedule for this first competition weekend by email with (match) secretaries and youth coordinators. When setting up the competition, the smallest possible travel distances between the clubs themselves have been taken into account.
Spectators are not allowed at the games yet. For the club playing away, the parents who bring the players by car are seen as supervisors. They can watch the match. It is assumed that the number of cars used to bring the children is limited to a minimum. It is not the intention that every parent brings their own child by car. When people from several households are in the same car due to sports activities, people aged 13 and over wear a face mask.
The senior competition is in the final phase 5 of the government’s step-by-step plan. These plans are scheduled for the month of July. If these are pushed forward, we will of course report this immediately. What may be mutual competitions at the club of teams within 1 association. This was already allowed for youth up to 18 years, but now also for people older than 18 years. No spectators are allowed at these matches.
Keeping 1,5 meters away is canceled
More good news, because the 1,5 meter distance that applied outside for athletes aged 18 and older has been cancelled. The maximum group size of 30 people no longer applies to this target group. This has been increased to 50 people.
Changing rooms and showers are allowed to open. Watch out for legionella danger, therefore rinse for a long time before use.
Sports canteens and terraces
Sports canteens and terraces are allowed to open between 06:00 and 22:00. A permanent seat at the table is mandatory. Seating at the bar is not allowed. Self-service is also not allowed. A maximum of 50 people are allowed in the sports canteen and on the terrace. Reservations, registration and health check are required. A maximum of 4 people can be booked at the same time. This is with the exception of children up to the age of 17 and persons from the same household.
