Vitesse apologise to travelling Albion fans

Vitesse "sincerely apologise" after PSV friendly cancellation

HOSTS Vitesse Arnhem have asked the Club to convey their deepest apologies for the cancellation of today's FOX Sports Cup finale against PSV Eindhoven.

The organisers are eager to point out that Albion fans in Arnhem will be welcome to attend the one remaining game of the competition between Vitesse and FC Porto at the GelreDome (ko 3.30pm).

The Baggies clash against PSV - the two winners from the opening round of games - was called off last night following security concerns. Click here

Maarten van Seggelen, Vitesse marketing and communications manager, contacted Albion last night to say: "We are really broken by the decision of the Mayor of Arnhem to postpone your match v PSV Eindhoven.

"There is nothing I or Vitesse can do about it, but I sincerely apologise as this is not the way that we wanted it to go.

"On request of the City of Arnhem we ask if you can help communicate to your fans that we are really sorry and they are welcome at the match Vitesse v FC Porto.

"Please let us know if we can help with anything. We can not solve it, but want to help where needed."

The Club are waiting for news from tournament organisers Match IQ over the prospect of refunds for Albion ticket holders.
