Police raid in second last Kitchen Champion Division competition with public

TOP Oss-Helmond Sport, the provisionally second – last professional competition with public in the Netherlands, was dedicated to a police raid on Friday in the supporter home of the home team. The officers had indications of โ€œa disruption to public order.โ€
Prior to the Brabant meeting, the local police force already reported via social media. ‘We are visibly present tonight during the football game TOP-Oss – Helmond Sport’, they said. โ€œThis is because we have received signals of possible serious disturbances of public order during the competition due to destruction and confrontations between groups of people.โ€

Later in the evening, a raid in the supporter home followed. Why the police took this action did not initially become clear to those involved. โ€œI have been reported that there was a serious threat,โ€ TOP Oss director Peter Bijvelds later responded to the Brabants Dagblad. โ€œThis means that the police outside the stadium designate a safety risk area, in which they have more powers, because there would be indications that heavy fireworks would be brought in, among other things.โ€ Incidentally, that this would be the case was not yet known to the TOP management.
The competition itself offered little entertainment. The numbers nineteen and seventeen of the Kitchen Champion Division came out on a 0-0 draw.
