“Full stadiums soon”

The football stadiums will be refilled again from September 25, reports the CCeit. From that day on, the one and a half meter rule disappears. Supporters will still have to show a corona entry ticket to enter the stadium.
Prime Minister Mark Rutte and corona minister Hugo de Jonge will make this decision official on Tuesday at a press conference. Currently, the stadiums can only be filled for two thirds. A spokesperson for the KNVB tells the CCeit that the one and a half meter rule was already broken at football games. With a two-thirds occupancy rate in a stadium, youll go through the 1.5 metres anyway, said the spokesman.
The Eredivision clubs will be able to refill their stadium for the first time since 2020 as of round seven. This weekend will include Willem II-PSV, Ajax-Groningen and Feyenoord-NEC. The easing also lets Ajax sell out its stadium for all Champions League home duels. That includes Feyenoord, AZ and Vitesse in the Conference League. PSV will still have to do with a partially filled stadium by Real Sociedad.
Supporters still need to provide a negative corona test or a vaccination certificate in order to get inside. This will now also apply to the entrance to many other places, such as hospitality, cinema and theatre.
Most of the previous season was finished without an audience. In this football year the fans were welcome again, but not in full numbers yet.
