Stadiums at outdoor sporting events may be fully filled again from September 25. The leaked measure was confirmed on Tuesday evening by outgoing Prime Minister Mark Rutte and outgoing healthcare minister Hugo de Jonge during their press conference.
The stands may also be completely filled during indoor matches with fixed seats. For indoor events without fixed seats, a maximum occupancy of 75 percent applies.
The KNVB is relieved, says the brand new director of professional football Marianne van Leeuwen. “Finally there is plenty of light at the end of the tunnel after a long time in which something that 8 million football fans in the Netherlands cherish was suddenly less obvious.”
Spectators in the stadiums must present a vaccination certificate or a negative corona test. But then everything is possible again. “People are also allowed to hop again,” De Jonge said at the press conference.
In the current package of corona measures from the government, two thirds of the capacity of the stadiums can be used for spectators. According to the KNVB, the one and a half meter rule had already been released: “With a two-thirds occupancy rate in a stadium, you already go through the one and a half meters.”
