On 12 March 2020, all football leagues were suspended until 31 March as the Dutch government forbade events due to the 2020 coronavirus pandemic in the Netherlands. On 15 March this period was extended until 6 April. Due to the decision of the Dutch government to forbid all gatherings and events until 1 June 2020, this period was even further extended.
On 2 April, several clubs including Ajax, AZ and PSV indicated they were not willing to play the remainder of the season.
The Dutch government announced on 21 April that all events subjct to authorization, would remain forbidden at least until 1 September 2020. As a result, the KNVB announced the same day, the intention not to continue all remaining suspended competitions. A final decision would be taken after consultation with the UEFA and next the consequences would be discussed with the clubs involved.
On 24 April 2020 the KNVB announced their final decision:
The ranking on 8 March 2020 is the final ranking, but Ajax will not be champions.
There will be no promotion/relegation between the Eredivisie and Keuken Kampioen Divisie.
The decision has caused controversies. FC Utrecht, which finished at 6th position, has played one less match than Willem II and finalist of KNVB Cup, have announced that the club will take legal action after being denied a European place.
AZ only played their first home game at AFAS Stadion due to the stadium's roof collapse on 10 August 2019. From then on they play their home matches at the 17,000-capacity Cars Jeans Stadion in The Hague, home of ADO Den Haag.
