No Sporting Events in The Netherlands Until July

We still await the official confirmation from Infront Moto Racing however the Dutch Government have confirmed there will be no events in the country until July.

The opening round of the FIM Motocross World Championship is set to take place on May 22nd and 23rd but if they wish to run with fans they will be unable to do so following the below announcement from the Dutch Government.

There will be some test events carried out before the 1st of July that will allow fans but other than that the events won’t be permitted with fans.

“Organizers of concerts, festivals, sports competitions and congresses can start planning their events again after July 1, the government said. If events have to be canceled due to corona measures, the organizers will receive a kind of cancellation subsidy from the government”.

“The organizations receive 80 percent of the costs incurred back as a gift. The remainder of the amount is paid out as a loan. 385 million euros has been reserved for the scheme. The scheme applies to events until December 31st. Events that were initiated last or this year are covered by this regulation if they are moved to a date after July 1”.

“The government expects that more will be possible from that date, although it remains uncertain. Everyone from the age of 18 is expected to have been vaccinated or have had a first injection in July”.
