At least four opening matches for the new Eredivisie football season have been cancelled because of the police strikes.
The Heerenveen – De Graafschap game is the latest to be put on hold because of the strike. The match was due to take place on Friday but Heerenveen’s mayor has decided to scrap the fixture because of the lack of police cover.
Also cancelled are duals between PEC Zwolle and Cambuur, ADO Den Haag and PSV and Willem II and Vitesse.
The Feyenoord – FC Utrecht tie will go ahead because that is the only game unaffected by the police action.
Police unions have said they will stop work during and after the matches in support of their pay claim unless justice minister Ard van der Steur comes up with a better offer.
