The Steering Committee of the Dutch Federation have decided to cancel the Eredivisie with no champion, promotions or relegations. The Championship will start from scratch next season in both the first and second division and other tiers without any changes.
In Holland they think it is more and more difficult for football to return. There will be no matches until at least 1st June, so the Federation are thinking of ending the Eredivisie season right now. There would be no relegation, but two promotions so there would be 20 teams in the Eredivisie next season.
