Curious: no VAR in the Dutch battle for promotion due to… misunderstanding at television channel

De Graafschap reports this on social media. “We have just been informed by the KNVB that, due to a misunderstanding at ESPN regarding the use of the VAR and the cameras required for this, the VAR will not be used in the first round of the play-offs.”

It is not yet known exactly what the misunderstanding entails. Three diptychs will be completed in the first round of the post-competition. In addition to De Graafschap-Eindhoven, NAC Breda and ADO Den Haag and Excelsior and Roda JC Kerkrade also face each other. NAC and Excelsior will act as hosts on Tuesday.
