PSV players and staff will be honoured on Thursday at Strijp-S if they win the KNVB Cup.
Dick Advocaat’s team will play in the finals on Ascension Day against AZ in ‘De Kuip’ in Rotterdam. If the team wins, they will be expected to arrive at around 11:30 in the evening at Strijp-S.
Initially, the ceremony was to take place at the Town Hall, but reportedly, the players found this unsuitable. According tot them, a party at the town hall should be reserved for national champions. PSV has not achieved that goal this year. Winning the KNVB Cup would be a small consolation for the players.
According to a city spokesperson, it is not yet clear whether Mayor Van Gijzel or sports councillor Joost Helms will lead the ceremony.
About 16,000 PSV supporters will be traveling to Rotterdam on Thursday. The Eindhoven players have an opportunity to win the Cup for a second time in a row.
