The Eredivisie is the highest amateur football league in the Netherlands. It is divided into two divisions, the Saturday Eredivisie and the Sunday Eredivisie, each with 18 teams. The top two teams from each division are promoted to the Eerste Divisie, the second tier of Dutch football. The bottom two teams from each division are relegated to the Tweede Divisie, the third tier of Dutch football.
The Eredivisie was founded in 2016 as a replacement for the Topklasse, which was the highest amateur football league in the Netherlands at the time. The decision to create the Eredivisie was made in order to improve the quality of amateur football in the Netherlands and to provide a better pathway for players to progress to professional football.
The current season of the Eredivisie is the 2023-2024 season. The Saturday Eredivisie is currently being led by VV Katwijk, while the Sunday Eredivisie is currently being led by FC Lisse. The season will end in May 2024, with the champions of each division being promoted to the Eerste Divisie.
