Football club finances improve

Six professional clubs remain on the Dutch football association’s watch list because of their problematic finances, the KNVB said on Wednesday.

Last August, 13 clubs were on the list.
NAC Breda, Roda JC, Helmond Sport, FC Den Bosch, FC Dordrecht and FC Emmen have three years to get their finances under control or risk losing their licence.
Just four premier division clubs – Ajax, FC Twente, NEC and PSV – are classed as grade 3, meaning they are considered to have healthy finances, Nos television said.
