The KNVB currently ranks clubs in categories of how financially stable they are, with AZ Alkmaar currently sitting in category three. However the losses could see them fall into category two which would mean more regulation from the Dutch FA will be needed.

AZ Alkmaar failed to qualify for European football last season, and currently sit 7th in the Eredivisie table.
