The Jupiler Pro League is set to be the first league in Europe to be offficially called off which would see Club Brugge crowned as champions.
This comes after the board of directors took the decision to recommend the ending of the Pro League with the final decision to be made at the general assembly meeting on 15 April.
Club Brugge sat 15 points clear on top of the log before the league was called off with just one game to be played before the play-off section which would have seen the top six sides compete for the club and European competition places.
The league released a statement saying that it was unlikely that any football would commence before 30 June and therefore made the most sense to cancel the league in an effort to minimise the possible affects of the upcoming new season.
“A resumption of the competition would in no way outweigh the health risks for players, employees and everyone involved in the competition organisation and the necessary maintenance of order,” the statement said.
“In addition, possible contamination of a player or the core of the team risks to influence the sporting course of the further competition in an unacceptable manner.Even if games behind closed doors could theoretically be possible, the additional pressure they place on health and order services should be avoided.”
