A new date has been set for Feyenoord’s final home match of the Eredivisie season against third-place rivals Vitesse. The fixture was originally scheduled for 2.30 pm on Sunday, but had to be postponed after the police union announced work stoppages in Rotterdam on that day. The game will now be held on Monday 11 May, with kick-off at 8 pm.
All tickets remain valid for the new date. Supporters who have bought tickets but are unable to make the game on Monday will be eligible for a refund. Everyone who has bought a ticket for the game will be notified of the procedure by email today (Friday). Season card holders will also receive an email with information about the rescheduling of this match.
Rotterdam mayor Aboutaleb felt it was necessary to prohibit the match from taking place at 2.30 pm on Sunday. He took this decision in response to an announcement by police unions that no officers would be made available to police the game, as part of an attempt to negotiation a better collective agreement for their members. Without police, the safety of players and fans and public order in the city cannot be guaranteed, said Aboutaleb.
