Excelsior director Ferry de Haan is counting on the cup match against Vitesse to continue, despite the snowfall and frost. NEC – VVV-Venlo has already been cancelled for that reason. According to De Haan, it all looks‘ positive ‘.
Due to winter weather conditions, the trip to stadiums is especially difficult. “For the time being, this competition is still going on”, says De Haan to the Algemeen Dagblad. “We must produce a clean field. If it‘s up to us, that’s what happens. The only thing that can happen is that the KNVB conjures something else out of the top hat.”
The KNVB states that there is a green (art) turf. “The difference with the competitions that have been canceled in the last few days is the accessibility. Sunday the code was red and it was a hell of a job for those clubs to get to the destination. Now fewer problems are expected,” says De Haan.
Excelsior and Vitesse meet Tuesday night at 8:00.
