Club Brugge champions of Belgium after season abandoned

Brugge now have a 16th league title while bottom club Waasland-Beveren are relegated. Brugge were 15 points clear with 11 matches to play when the championship was halted in March.

The Belgian league follows European counterparts France, Netherlands and Luxembourg in calling an early halt. League officials had already recommended the Belgian season be declared finished early due to the pandemic with the table accepted as final on 2 April, becoming the first European league to suggest such a measure.

The following day, UEFA called the decision "premature" and "unjustified" and threatened to deprive Belgian clubs of places in European competitions next season.

The Pro League had delayed a vote on whether to end the season three times although clubs were mostly in favour.
