Updated: Feb 16, 2020

  • A large section of the roof has completely destroyed at Dutch club AZ Alkmaar's stadium, due to high-speed winds in the Netherlands.

  • AZ Alkmaar will launch an investigation after part of the roof at the AFAS Stadium collapsed on Saturday.

  • No injuries were recorded.


The Dutch Eredivisie club's general manager Robert Eenhorn said at a press conference where he also announced an investigation into the incident.

He said: "This surprised us all. We are very shocked but especially happy that there was no human suffering.

"In the coming days we will conduct a study with experts in this field. Only when that investigation has been done can we elaborate on the matter. It is much too early for that now."

Their next home game is a Europa League third-round qualifier against Ukraine's FC Mariupol on Thursday.


However the match is not confirmed to happen.

Eenhorn said: "No matches will be played in the stadium if the situation is not safe."
