Dutch FA Reveal Plans to Resume Eredivisie Season on June 19 Without Supporters

The footballing authorities in the Netherlands have revealed plans to resume their Eredivisie season on June 19 – with matches set to be played behind close doors.

Like the rest of the continent, the likes of Ajax, PSV and Feyenoord saw their league campaign suspended several weeks ago following the coronavirus outbreak, with Ajax top of the table on goal difference ahead of AZ Alkmaar, with both teams on 56 points after 25 matches played.

The Amsterdam giants had previously urged the league’s hierarchy to call the season to a close, crowning them champions, but reports this evening suggest clubs could begin training again by mid-May.

According to news outlet Football Oranje, the KNVB are completely committed to seeing out the season in the top two divisions at least, in stark contrast to neighbours Belgium, who recently called their top-flight to a halt and crowned Club Brugge as winners.

It remains to be seen how health authorities will react to the news but what do you think of the plans?
