Belgian football chiefs have CANCELLED the season and crowned Club Brugge champions – with the Premier League set to hold a crisis meeting on Friday.
All European football has been called to a halt, with the exception of Belarus, as coronavirus tears through the continent.
A host of leagues are set to discuss how best to react, with cancellation just one of many options.
But Belgium have refused to wait any longer, reacting first and calling the season off for good – with just one game left in the regular season and Club Brugge 15 points clear at the top.
The Jupiler Pro League’s board of directors voted unanimously for the outcome and it is now just pending the endorsement of the general assembly on April 15.
That, though, is expected to be a mere formality, according to HLN, as Club Brugge clinch their first title since 2017-18.
The Premier League is currently one of many clubs on lockdown until April 30.
