The KNVB have informed AZ Alkmaar that they will not be changing their minds over the distribution of European places.

AZ Alkmaar were not happy with the decision from the KNVB to award the automatic Champions league spot to Ajax, and they turned to UEFA.

Both clubs finished on the same points, but Ajax were top on goal difference. AZ thought it should have been based on head to head, and they had beaten Ajax home and away.

However, the KNVB will not change their minds with a spokesman telling NOS, “UEFA has informed the KNVB and referred AZ to us. We have informed AZ that nothing has changed for us. We have communicated the distribution of European tickets on the basis of three criteria: transparency, objectivity and sportsmanship. We keep the rankings and Ajax is number one.”
