The Dutch Professional Football Competition Board (Eredivisie, Keuken Kampioen Divisie, and KNVB) has decided that the remaining part of the Eredivisie match between AZ and NEC will be played on Wednesday, December 6th, at 7:00 PM. Fans are allowed during the remaining minutes of the game.
The match was definitively halted on Sunday, October 29th, after N.E.C. Nijmegen player Bas Dost collapsed on the field in the 90th minute and had to be taken to the hospital. Due to the busy schedules of both AZ (UEFA Conference League) and N.E.C. Nijmegen (TOTO KNVB Beker), it was not possible to complete the remaining part of the match earlier
