The postponed Belgian Cup final has been rescheduled for Aug. 1. That is one
week before the start of the league's next season.
Belgian soccer authorities say the match between Club Brugge and Antwerp will
take place in an empty King Baudouin Stadium.
Club Brugge has the opportunity to secure a league-cup double after it was
awarded its 16th Belgian title this month following a decision to end the
current season prematurely because of the coronavirus pandemic.
All sporting competitions in Belgium have been suspended until July 31. The new
season is set to start on Aug. 7.
