The Eredivisie match between FC Groningen and Ajax on Sunday afternoon was known as off after simply 9 minutes after fireworks and smoke bombs have been thrown onto the pitch and Groningen’s supporters stormed the sphere.
The house followers seemed to be indignant at their membership’s board after their group suffered relegation from the Eredivisie. Groningen has had a disastrous 2023 season, profitable simply 4 of 31 matches to date. The group will not be really backside of the desk regardless of that report, however that doesn’t make issues any simpler for Groningen’s indignant fanbase.

The gamers have been first taken off within the sixth minute after first smoke bombs rained down, earlier than one fan managed to get onto the pitch with a banner insulting the membership administration.
The sport was then restarted after the pitch was cleared, however three minutes later extra bombs have been thrown down from the stands. That led to the referee calling off the match, in step with new guidelines enacted by the Dutch soccer federation (KNVB).

The KNVB tightened safety measures after Ajax star Davy Klaassen suffered a head damage brought on by a cigarette lighter thrown from the stands in a match between Feyenoord and Ajax in early April.
The Groningen group is owned by FC Groningen Beheer BV, an organization that owns numerous sport golf equipment. Followers have been indignant on the membership’s relegation for the primary time in 23 years, blaming the administration for the setback.
In keeping with the Dagblad van het Noorden, the sport will probably be replayed on Tuesday, however there will probably be no followers. It will likely be performed to an empty stadium.
