Due to the aftermath of the emotional events during RKC Waalwijk – Ajax and Ajax’s playing schedule, it was impossible to play the remainder of the match this week, the KNVB said on Wednesday. Other options to play the remainder before December 6 have been considered, but those were not feasible due to multiple reasons.
The RKC - Ajax match was suspended in the closing stages due to a medical situation involving the home team's goalkeeper, Etienne Vaessen. At the time of the interruption, Ajax was leading 3-2. After consultation with the home team's players, it was decided not to resume the match.
