No sport events in Netherlands until at least July
It has been confirmed that sport events in the Netherlands won’t be happening until at least the 1st of July.
The opening round of the MXGP World Championship is currently scheduled for the 22nd and 23rd of May but if they want to run with fans this will no longer will be possible.
There will be some test events carried out before the 1st of July that will allow fans but other than that the events won’t be permitted with fans.
“Organizers of concerts, festivals, sports competitions and congresses can start planning their events again after July 1, the government said. If events have to be canceled due to corona measures, the organizers will receive a kind of cancellation subsidy from the government”.
“The organizations receive 80 percent of the costs incurred back as a gift. The remainder of the amount is paid out as a loan. 385 million euros has been reserved for the scheme. The scheme applies to events until December 31st. Events that were initiated last or this year are covered by this regulation if they are moved to a date after July 1”.
“The government expects that more will be possible from that date, although it remains uncertain. Everyone from the age of 18 is expected to have been vaccinated or have had a first injection in July”.
