Netherlands: 2020-21 Eredivisie – Location-map, with 2 charts: Seasons-in-1st-Division (current clubs) & All-time Dutch titles list

-2020-21 Eredivisie (

The map shows the 18 clubs in the 2020-21 Eredivisie, the top-flight of the Netherlands. The Eredivisie was founded in 1956, two years after the introduction of professionalism in the Netherlands. That makes this the 65th season of the competition. There was no champion last season, because the competition was abandoned due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 2018-19 champions were Ajax of Amsterdam – the most successful Dutch club – and Ajax are on course to win the title again, with a 6-point lead as of the 5th of March (with 11 or 12 games to be played).

At the right-hand side of the map-page are two charts. The top chart shows the Seasons-in-1st-division for the current clubs. Also listed are the consecutive seasons each club has currently spent in the top-flight. Longest serving clubs are the big 3 of the Netherlands – Ajax (of Amsterdam) Feyenoord (of Rotterdam), and PSV (of Eindhoven). All 3 were founding members of the Eredivisie, and all 3 have never been relegated. The second chart is the all-time pro titles list for the Netherlands. As mentioned, the Eredivisie was established two years after Dutch clubs could turn pro. So I have included the winners of the final two 48-team Dutch National Championships, in 1954-55 (winner: Willem II) and 1955-56 (winner: Rapid JC).

The map itself includes the 12 provinces and 14 largest cities of the Netherlands. At the foot of the map, the populations of those 14 largest Dutch cities are listed (with the provinces they are located in). Finally, I added all the major rivers and waterways of the Netherlands, including the main canals.
