Marcel Boejorn takes over at NEC. A billionaire from Bennekom takes over the management of the Nijmegen professional club. With millions pumped in, Wall’s “serious major department head” had to be put out for years.
Boekhoorn (61) will set the course after a “cleanup” at the top of the club and a new stock purchase. This is necessary to fend off old claims from investors. According to those involved, there is no “doubt” of an acquisition. This is legally complicated.
When asked, sources in the immediate vicinity of Boekhoorn also confirmed that the entrepreneur has no ambition to acquire NEC. “Marcel believes that the football club should be owned by the fans, by the people who love the club,” an anonymous source said about the businessman. He wants to help the club, improve its structure and ensure that NEC is back in financial shape again. He does it out of his love for the club.”

So NEC won’t get an owner, like building in Vitesse in Arnhem with Russia’s Valeri Oyf. But Boekhoorn, known for the Telfort deal and owner of Ouwehands Dierenpark, is already getting “full”. Billionaire Benicum, if a set of requirements are met, chooses “conscious and structural investments” in the professional club. This immediately concerns millions of euros, because they need to stay at the top of Dutch football.
