Alkmaar will face Naples in the Europa League next week. They announced today that 4 first-team players have tested positive for the new crown.
Alkmaar’s official announcement read: “Four players from the club’s first team tested positive for the new crown. To protect the privacy of the players, we will not disclose their names. There are also two youth team players and three coaching staff members. The new crown test result is positive."
However, according to UEFA regulations, as long as there are more than 13 players in the first team of the participating team, the UEFA Cup can be played. So now, the UEFA Cup match between Naples and Alkmaar will continue normally.
