Players, staff and board of FC Groningen show their willingness to pay in the coming period to help the club through the coronacrisis.
In May last year, all clubs in paid football agreed collectively that the staff had to make a wage sacrifice before the hand could be held in The Hague. That agreement expired at the end of 2020, but after consultation with players and staff, FC Groningen decided to extend the period, at least until the audience can be played again or

Managing Director Wouter Gudde is content with the unanimity of the club and speaks of great realism. , We hope to have a lot of support from our supporters over the next few months, but just like last year we want to see what we can do ourselves. We have outlined the situation with players and staff, and they understood it very well. Within half an hour they were out and joined collective solidarity. It signs the involvement. We are very happy with it.”
