Go Ahead Eagles to the Eredivisie!
GFM players Sam Beukema, Juliani Eersteling, Max Leeflang en Zakaria Eddahchouri promoted to the Eredivisie with Go Ahead Eagles!
Going into the final day of the season, four sides could have been promoted, but it was all in the hands of De Graafschap. They just had to defeat Helmond Sport to book their place in the Eredivisie. However, the rain was heavy in Doetinchem and the game was stopped after 38 minutes with the score at 0-0. While De Graafschap waited, Go Ahead Eagles sealed a 1-0 victory at Excelsior which moved them into second spot. De Graafschap eventually got their game back underway, but they could not find a winning goal. The draw meant Go Ahead Eagles promoted alongside Erik Schouten’s Cambuur. Go Ahead Eagles last played in the top flight during the 2016-17 season.
