“Alarm bells are ringing at Vitesse: the club is now really threatening to cease to exist”

All alarm bells are ringing at Vitesse, De Gelderlander reports. The KNVB is now threatening to withdraw the Arnhemmers’ professional license, which would ensure that they are no longer allowed to play professional football.

That has everything to do with Vitesse’s stadium issue. The club has still not reached an agreement with the GelreDome about an extension of the collaboration, while it has already missed a deadline from the KNVB. Now the union has issued an ultimatum: clarity must be obtained from Vitesse about the stadium before April 11. Failure to do so will result in the professional license being revoked.

Vitesse has been informed of this news by post. “With that, Vitesse, one of the oldest Dutch football clubs, with a very rich history and involving many supporters, sponsors, players, employees and volunteers, would cease to exist,” the lawyers write in the letter.

Vitesse has already lost preliminary relief proceedings about the use of the GelreDome, but it is now appealing via turbo urgent treatment. ‘Time is ticking away,’ explains De Gelderlander. The KNVB emphasizes that it will be inexorable. Vitesse hopes that the court can handle the new case before March 31.

It seems that the appeal is Vitesse’s last resort. Numerous negotiations with stadium owner Michael van de Kuit came to nothing.
