Dutch Cup final to be played over 2 legs

The Dutch Cup final between rivals Ajax Amsterdam and Feyenoord

Rotterdam will be played over two legs and only home fans allowed

attend, a decision made after threats of violence appeared on Web

sites.

The final had been scheduled for Rotterdam’s De Kuip stadium on

April 25, and soccer authorities and police had agreed to suspend a

five-year travel ban on both team’s fans for the game. The ban had

been imposed last year after a series of violent

confrontations.

The two-leg final will now be played April 25 in Amsterdam and

May 6 in Rotterdam.
