Eredivisie Women | Netherlands - an overview

The Netherlands Eredivisie Women or Eredivisie Vrouwen is translated to Dutch Honor Division Women’s. This is the top-flight of professional women's football league in the Netherlands. Its origins started in 2007 when it was commissioned by the Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB). Since then the Dutch and Belgium women’s leagues have merged to form a single combined league. This is known as the BeNe League, which was eventually replaced by the Eredivisie for the 2015–16 season. Since the introduction of the Belgium leagues and the change to the new (2016) format, the season has been split into two parts. The Regular Season is determined by a triple round-robin with three games being played. Home and way and a lottery draw. The second part of the season is the Play-off.

The points accumulated at the regular season are halved and added to the points of the play-off stage rounds. Teams in the Netherlands Eredivisie Women competition play for the KNVB Women's Cup and placement in the UEFA Women's Champions League. There is no relegation from the Eredivisie Vrouwen.
