Eredivisie: Dutch top flight likely to be cancelled after major events ban extended

The Dutch Football Association “intends not to continue” the Eredivisie season after the national government extended a ban on major events until 1 September because of coronavirus.

Ajax and AZ Alkmaar are leading the Dutch top flight level on points after 26 games, with Ajax ahead on goal difference.

Dutch football’s governing body KNVB said in a statement it “intends not to continue playing the 2019/20 competition” but will consult Uefa before making a final decision.

Earlier on Tuesday, Uefa said some European leagues could be cancelled “in special cases” because of the pandemic.
