AMSTERDAM: The Netherlands is reportedly planning to revive the league season behind closed doors on June 19 as several European associations look to ease their way out of health control restrictions.

Reports in the Dutch media stated that the KNVB and its major stakeholders had set the mid-June target after a video conference on Tuesday and despite calls for the season to be declared from Ajax, PSV and AZ Alkmaar.

Clubs would return to training in mid-May, following up on the German example of limited-distancing training for Bundesliga clubs.

A date for the Dutch Cup final between Feyenoord and FC Utrecht remains to be set as well as a possible amendment of the promotion-relegation playoffs.

The German Bundesliga’s chief executive, Christian Seifert, has said that plans are under way to return at action at all 36 stadia in the top two divisions by the beginning of next month with the remaining nine games of the schedule to be completed by the end of June.
