Eredivisie could reverse the decision to cancel season

The Dutch Eredivisie could reverse the decision to cancel this season as more clubs are expected to file legal action against the decision.

FC Utrecht has already filed a case on the decision with reports from the Netherlands indicating that furious clubs are expected to follow suit in the coming days.

The decision meant Utrecht were denied a place in the Europa League despite having played a game less than Willem II and boasting superior goal difference.

Last week, Holland's top flight announced that the season was cancelled with no winner declared and no teams to be relegated from the top flight due to the coronavirus crisis.

Another club angered by the decision is Cambuur, who are 11 points clear in the second tier and seemingly destined for promotion to the Eredivisie are one of the teams not happy with the decision with Ajax and AZ Alkmaar said to be frustrated after being denied the chance to become champions.

According to AD, there are legitimate legal grounds for a challenge with Cambuur general manager De Graaf saying: “A child can see that there are legal brackets here. We have set out our first actions.”

Alan Pardew's Den Haag breathed a sigh of relief as they were second-bottom and fighting for survival while Ajax and AZ Alkmaar were frustrated as they were denied the chance to become champions with both level on points at the summit.

Dutch football has been hit hard by the Covid-19 crisis and the Dutch football association (KNVB) is also expected to ask the government for £350million to help it survive the financial losses incurred.
