GelreDome deal threatens to fail for Vitesse: ‘There is no such confidence’

Michael van der Kuit, stadium owner of Vitesse, torpedoed a deal with Vitesse, De Gelderlander reports. Earlier this week, the parties involved reached an agreement about the GelreDome, but according to Coley Parry, the intended new owner of the Arnhemmers, Van der Kuit suddenly sweeps the agreement off the table.

Parrey and his investment company Common Group are waiting for the green light from the KNVB for the acquisition of Vitesse. Ten days ago, the American entered into negotiations on the GelreDome on behalf of the Arnhemmers and on Thursday he will tell his story for the first time, after Van der Kuit announced that ‘there is no money with Parry’.

“We have made a deal,” Parry says to the regional medium. “It has been in existence for 48 hours. That is a deal between me, Michael van de Kuit and Vitesse. Lawyers are also working hard on it. The agreement has been put in writing. But now Van de Kuit suddenly wants to change the conditions.” Vitesse is said to have reached an agreement with Van der Kuit’s Nedstede until 2030 about the GelreDome venue.

The rent is said to be 2.15 million euros per year. “But the Common Group has already sent to the club all the capital needed to sign the deal on the agreed terms.” Van der Kuit calls off the deal, partly because he demands promises from the municipality of Arnhem for the future. “Confidence is needed from the municipality and Vitesse and the possible new club owner in me as a stadium owner,” he says. “There’s no such trust.”

Parry emphasizes that the municipality is not a party to the conflict at all. “For me, the book is not closed,” he says. “Vitesse wants to honor the deal that has been made. It is a very good agreement for the stadium owner. I am a man of my word.”
