Dutch Hoofdklasse To Start At April 29

After long deliberation, the KNBSB (Royal Dutch Baseball and Softball Federation) and the Dutch hoofdklasse clubs have decided to start the Dutch hoofdklasse season at April 29.


Both the KNBSB and the Dutch hoofdklasse clubs have decided to start the competition within the COVID-19 boundaries. This means that the frist games will be played without fans in the stands.

The original plan was to start the Dutch hoofdklasse on April 8, but due to corona measures, clubs were not able to train indoors. So as a result the start was pushed back to give the teams a proper preparation time.

The KNBSB has been examining if it was possible to play baseball within the covid boundaries. The current corona rules in the Netherlands tell that top sport competitions can be played when players are tested for corona. The Federation and the clubs have invested money to buy emergency tests so the league could start a.s.a.p.

Because the first rounds will be played without fans, clubs and the KNBSB have made it possible that the games will be streamed at a better quality than last year. These games can be watched through Eyecons.
