The KNCB has confirmed this week that the Topklasse Men and Hoofdklasse Women will start on May 1. Cricket is one of the sports of which the highest level of competition (m/f) may continue “as usual”. As it stands, there are of course protocols that must be met. That means, for example, testing players and staff, whilst spectators are not yet allowed. Who knows what will come in the next two months, but for now the great news is that at least VCC 1 (m / f) can start the season . Hopefully, similar good news will soon follow for the other teams. And if the Corona measures are still in effect on May 1, then it is good to know that all Topklasse matches will be live-streamed as off this season.
The board and the players (m/f) of VCC 1 are obviously very happy with this news and the opportunity to enter the competition. In contrast to 2020, the championship title will be offcially contested and the lowest ranked of 2021 will have to compete in the Hoofdklasse next year (at least if the Hoofdklasse is also able to play at least a round robin schedule).
