The Dutch government has confirmed that all licensed events have been banned until the 1st of September. It will now be impossible for the KNVB to finish the Dutch football season.

Dutch prime minister Mark Rutte held a press conference on Tuesday evening and announced that the banning of all licensed events had been extended to September 1st. They had previously been banned until June 1st.

This means it is almost certainly now impossible for the KNVB to finish the Eredivisie or Keueken Kampioen Divisie seasons. The games cannot be played without fans, as it will still require police to be present.

The mayors of major cities had already stated their intentions to stop any football being played again before September, but it has now been confirmed by the government.

The KNVB will now have to assess the situation and make a statement on what that means for the club’s.
