If it were up to Eric Gudde is, should football supporters found guilty of racism, and more often result in criminal prosecution. According to THE director that such a measure is more effective than, for example, lost points, or to an empty space in the stadium.

THE directors Gudde (football), and Jan Dirk van der Zee (amateur) rose on Thursday in a meeting with the prime minister, Mark Rutte, and ministers, Ferd Grapperhaus (Security and Justice) and mr Bruins (Sports) about the issue of racism in English football.

The most important conclusion that one and one-half-hour-long meeting was that the racism is harder to deal with it. “And it is not only more stadionverboden and a higher fine, but also, in conjunction with a criminal prosecution as well,” explains Gudde afterwards, in the interview with NUsport.
