FC Groningen - Ajax cancelled

FC Groningen - Ajax has been cancelled due to fire in the stands of stadium Euroborg. When the match will be played, will be announced shortly.

Minutes before kick off, several fires started in the stands when paper streamers caught fire. Spectators fled onto the pitch and the players withdrew to the dressing rooms. After more than an hour, it was decided to cancel the match. ,,The club doctors thought it was too dangerous to play", Groningen coach Ron Jans said to the fans from the pitch. ,,The chance of respertory problems is too great." Adrie Koster said he hoped the Ajax supporters would understand the decision. ,,Mediscaly it was unwarranted", said the Ajax coach.

There was some good news on Sunday, as PSV drew 1-1 with FC Twente. With this result, Ajax are still in the race for the title. Ajax are six points behind, with two matches to play against one for PSV.
