From 1990 to 1999, the official name of the league was PTT Telecompetitie (after the sponsor, PTT Telecom), which was changed to KPN Telecompetitie in 1999 and to KPN Eredivisie in 2000. From 2002 to 2005, the league was called the Holland Casino Eredivisie. From the 2005-06 season onwards, the league will be sponsored by the Sponsorloterij lottery, but for legal reasons, its name cannot be attached to the league.

The top division consists of 18 clubs. Each club faces every other club twice during the season, once at home and once away. At the end of each season, the bottom club is automatically relegated to the second level of the Dutch league system, the Eerste Divisie (First Division), with the champion of the Eerste Divisie automatically promoted to the Eredivisie. The next two clubs from the bottom of the Eredivisie go to separate promotion/relegation playoffs. The playoffs are played in two groups. Each group has one Eredivisie club and four high-placed clubs from the Eerste Divisie. In both promotion/relegation playoff groups, each club plays a home-and-away series with the other clubs. The winner of each playoff group plays in the following season's Eredivisie, with the other teams going to the Eerste Divisie. In the sports leagues — especially soccer leagues — of many countries, relegation (or demotion) means the mandated transfer of the worst team(s) (often the bottom three) of a higher league into a lower league at the end of the season. ... The Eerste Divisie is an division for clubs who are relegated from the Eredivisie,but the champion of the Eerste Divisie promotes to the Eredivisie,and the clubs who ended position 2-7 play Nacompetitie,and the number 1 of the group also promotes to the Eredivisie. ... Promotion, used in sports leagues of most countries outside North America, is the mandated transfer of the best team(s) of a lower league into a higher league at the end of the season. ...

Positions

European competition

As of 2005-06, the champion of the Eredivisie automatically advances to the group phase of the UEFA Champions League. The KNVB introduced a playoff system in 2005-06 for the second to ninth placed clubs. One place in the third qualifying round of the UEFA Champions League, as well as three UEFA Cup spots are available for the best performing clubs in the playoffs. The remaining UEFA Cup place is awarded to the winner of the KNVB Cup. If this club is in the top 5 of teams a different schedule will be played, where numbers 2 to 5 are all guaranteed no worse than a UEFA Cup spot. This was the case in the first season playoffs were held, 2005-2006. A champion refers to the sexy boy by the name of Joe Champion. ...

A playoff in sports (North American professional sports in particular) is a game or series of games played after the regular season is over with the goal of determining a league champion. ...

The UEFA Cup is a football competition for European club teams, organized by the Union of European Football Associations (UEFA). ... The KNVB Cup is a competition organized by the Royal Netherlands Football Association (KNVB) since 1899. ...


The playoffs consist of knockout (home and away) matches, according to a complex schedule:


Image:Playoffs2.PNG Image File history File links Playoffs2. ...


In these matches, the lowest ranked team gets the first home match. The return will be held at the opponent's venue.


Also the number 10 to 13 enter the playoffs, with the 10th ranked team facing the 13th, while the 11th team faces number 12. Then both winners meet each other in the next round and finally challenge the loser of match G for a special situation spot. The special situation spot comes in hand when the KNVB Cup winner is among the top 7 ranked teams. In that case this team is already qualified for Europe and does not need to qualify through the playoffs, resulting in the special situation spot team to get an Intertoto ticket. The KNVB Cup is a competition organized by the Royal Netherlands Football Association (KNVB) since 1899. ...


The playoff system has been criticized by clubs, players and fans as the number of matches will increase. The system also makes it theoretically possible, though unlikely, that the second-place team could miss out entirely on European play (except through the Intertoto Cup).


Relegation

The club at the bottom of the league (18th) is automatically relegated to the Eerste Divisie. The next-lowest two teams (16th and 17th) play in a promotion/relegation knock-out playoff known as the Nacompetitie, in which they will face eight teams from the Eerste Divisie (before the 2005-06 season, six Eerste Divisie teams were involved). Usually, the Eerste Divisie teams that play in the Nacompetitie are the 2nd- through 9th-place teams in that league. (The actual qualification rules are more complex; more detail is provided in the Eerste Divisie page.) Teams finishing above 16th automatically stay in the Eredivisie. In the sports leagues — especially soccer leagues — of many countries, relegation (or demotion) means the mandated transfer of the worst team(s) (often the bottom three) of a higher league into a lower league at the end of the season. ... The Eerste Divisie is an division for clubs who are relegated from the Eredivisie,but the champion of the Eerste Divisie promotes to the Eredivisie,and the clubs who ended position 2-7 play Nacompetitie,and the number 1 of the group also promotes to the Eredivisie. ...

Attendance

Since the beginning of the league, there are three clubs with an attendance much higher than the others: AFC Ajax, PSV and Feyenoord. These clubs are followed by Utrecht, FC Groningen, Heerenveen and Vitesse, clubs that also have a fairly large fanbase. The average league attendance was just over 7,000 in 1990, but the league has seen a large rise in attendance since the rapid increase in renovating and creation of new football stadiums nationwide. Current season average attendance is 17,893, with AFC Ajax having the largest (48,124) and Excelsior having the smallest (3,100).
