The ranking after all clubs have played against each other twice determines the home/away ratio of the third period of the competition and determines which teams will play four home matches and whom to play four away matches.

During the season, the clubs play for period titles. The winners of these period titles come out in a new form of the Eredivisie Cup. In that new model, knockout matches are played to win that separate title.
