Football: Belgium wants to join a Dutch pilot project
12:45 PM The Pro League of Belgian football would like to participate in a Dutch pilot project that organizes test matches with a limited number of supporters who have been tested for the corona virus. The question was presented to Minister of the Interior Annelies Verlinden during an introductory meeting on Tuesday, who, however, does not want to give permission for this for the time being.
The KNVB, in collaboration with the events sector, launched a scientific pilot project to allow an audience – a maximum of 1,500 supporters – during a limited number of matches. The government approved the test phase, but it has been postponed for a while due to the extended lockdown in the Netherlands.
Belgian professional football would like to participate in that scientific research, with one or two stadiums per match day. The Pro League understands that a return of the fans is not yet on the agenda, given the situation surrounding the virus. Despite the hesitation, the minister did not firmly reject the idea either.
