Vitesse closes six rows of pits after security clearance

Vitesse will keep the six-row indoor stands for Sunday’s home game against sc Heerenveen (2.30 p.m.), because the safety of the stands must be further investigated. A design bureau found a deviation in the height of the rows in the construction of the stand, which does not guarantee safety. As a result, almost nine hundred seats in the South Stand are not available on Sunday. Vitesse reports that there is “more than enough space for the public”.

For the time being, the measure only applies to the duel with Heerenveen. A decision will be made later on the match that will be played on May 15 against league-leader Ajax. “It is important to note that there is no reason to doubt the safety of the stands and other parts of the stands,” the Arnhem club said. said.

Vitesse said he was investigating the safety of the stands after Eredivisie stadiums were found to be unsafe earlier this season. In October, for example, some of the stands in the NEC stadium collapsed.
