Netherlands Eredivisie Results

Eredivisie History and General Info

As you might already know, Eredivisie is the top professional football league in the Netherlands. It was founded back in 1956, just a couple of years after football appeared on a professional level in the country. In the current season, UEFA ranks it as the ninth-best national football league in Europe.

This league changed a few names during the 90s and 2000s. For a while, depending on the main sponsors, it was called the PTT Telecompetitie, KPN Telecompetitie, and KPN Eredivisie, and even the Holland Casino Eredivisie. Currently, however, it has no brand names attached to the league’s name. Its rights are instead in the hands of the American media tycoon Rupert Murdoch and will be until around 2025.

Similarly to a lot of other leagues on the continent, this division is made up of the 18 best professional football teams in the Netherlands. At the end of each season, the two teams at the bottom of Eredivisie’s rankings are relegated to the second level of the Dutch football league system – EersteDivisie. Conversely, the two highest-ranking teams in the EersteDivisie are promoted to replace them. The 16th ranked team goes to separate promotion play-offs, in which they compete against another eight highly ranked teams from the lower division.

Eredivisie follows a fairly simple basic structure. It starts off in an 18-way Round Robin, played during 34 match days, starting in August and lasting to around early May. Only the top four teams qualify for the championship playoffs. Out of these four, the team which wins the playoffs automatically qualifies for the 1st playoff round of the UEFA Champions League qualifiers. The second team goes to the 2nd playoff round in the same qualifiers, while the rest go on to various rounds of the Europa League qualifiers.

These days, the Eredivisie is seen as a largely one-sided affair. To illustrate this claim even further it’s worth noting that Ajax Amsterdam has won over 25 league titles and a total of 34 national trophies which include Cup competitions. PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord Rotterdam follow closely behind with 21 (24 national) and 10 (15 national) titles respectively. These three teams are thus considered the “Big Three” of Dutch football, having won almost every Eredivisie championship since 1965. Moreover, these three teams have never been relegated out of this league. It should then make sense that the top scorers throughout Eredivisie’s history have almost exclusively played for these three clubs. The overall score record of 43 goals is still held by Coen Dillen, who made the record playing for PSV in the league’s first-ever season back in 1956-57.


Biggest Eredivisie Derby Matches

De Klassieker

Easily the biggest sporting event in the Netherlands, De Klassiker is the famed meeting between rivals Ajax Amsterdam and Feyenoord. The derby is a manifestation of the rivalry between the two cities the clubs come from, which has been active since the 13th century. Sadly, this also means that the charged matches often resulted in violence. This has been largely cracked down on since the 90s, though, but De Klassieker matches remain hugely contested affairs and the most important dates in the Eredivisie calendar.

De Topper

The derby between Ajax and PSV Eindhoven has been growing in size and significance for decades now. The score is somewhat predictably in Ajax’ favour, but that may change yet. De Topper matches generate plenty of attention nationwide and beyond.

Eredivisie Best Stadiums

Johan Cruyff Arena

Ajax Arena

Home of AFC Ajax, this massive stadium is the largest of its kind in the Netherlands, housing up to 54,990 spectators for different sports matches. It is Amsterdam’s main stadium and was funded and built by the city authorities. It used to be called the Amsterdam ArenA until the 2018-2019 season, when it was renamed in honour of legendary Dutch footballer Johan Cruyff who died in March 2016.

De Kuip

De Kuip means “The Tub” in Dutch, the original name of this stadium being Stadion Feijenoord. It is located in Rotterdam and is the home of Feyenoord. It’s one of the oldest of such size, being built back in 1935. It has been remodelled and restored several times since then, however, and can currently take up to 51,777 spectators.
