The KNVB has canceled all the Eredivisie and Kitchen Champion Division matches on Sunday and can now look forward to the races that will be on the program next midweek. Whether football is taking place in the Kitchen Champion Division on Monday and whether the cup matches for the next midweek will continue, please let the Football Association know.
Helmond Sport-Almere City and Telstar-nac Breda could not continue on Sunday. If the monday evening matches Jong FC Utrecht-FC Dordrecht and Jong Ajax-sc Cambuur continue, please let the KNVB know in due course. This can be on Sunday evening or Monday morning, reports the Football Association via Twitter.
Bye Pietjan. If the matches in the KKD don‘t take place tomorrow, we’ll let you know. Whether this is announced tonight or tomorrow, we cannot say.

Between Tuesday and Thursday, football should also be played in the Netherlands: the KNVB Cup Quarter-Finals Excelsior-Vitesse, NEC – VVV-Venlo, Ajax-PSV and sc Heerenveen-Feyenoord are on the program. Whether these competitions can continue must prove later in the week. In any case, the KNVB will not remove all four quarter-finals from the planning at the same time. “We look at the situation per game day. If there was an improvement in circumstances during the week, it would be a shame if the whole program were thrown out,” says spokesman Jan Bluyssen to De Cceit.
The football association will also have to find a new date for the matches Ajax-FC Utrecht, FC Groningen-Feyenoord, Willem II-ADO Den Haag and VVV-Venlo — Sparta. Especially with Ajax-FC Utrecht this promises to be a big puzzle. Bluyssen does not rule out that the race will not be overtaken until the end of April, since Ajax is still active on three fronts, he already announced Saturday.
