PSV Eindhoven, Feyenoord and AZ Alkmaar have followed Ajax in asking for the Eredivisie season to be ended now.

On Wednesday, Ajax director Marc Overmars called on the KNVB to put an end to the current season now, instead of resuming it in the summer.

Now the rest of the Eredivisie’s big club’s have followed suit with Feyenoord, AZ Alkmaar and PSV Eindhoven all calling on the KNVB to do the right thing and definitely cancel the campaign. The three clubs made this known during a video conference with the Dutch football federation.

Smaller clubs such as Fortuna Sittard, RKC Waalwijk, PEC Zwolle, and ADO Den Haag have all spoken in favour of ending the campaign too.

AZ general manager Robert Eenhoorn said, “We understand better than anyone that this will be a very difficult decision, but we find the current corona situation so worrying that playing the remainder of the matches without an audience is of secondary importance to us. Moreover, there is still too much uncertainty about how the coronavirus will develop further.”

PSV general manager Toon Gerbrands said, “We find it in no way justifiable to play the remainder of the matches. Firstly because of public health. That is the most important thing. In addition, we believe that playing through in the summer, as suggested by UEFA yesterday, is not feasible. ”

It now looks impossible for the KNVB to move forward with their plan of resuming the league in June with the idea of ending it by August.
