The winter break runs from December 19th 2016 until January 12th 2017. Now the round calendar is drawn up, the KNVB will work on the design of the fixture.

Stadiums & Locations
It is still unclear whether FC Twente will be a part of the 2016-17 Eredivisie. As a result of financial maladministration, the KNVB have taken FC Twente’s license, causing them to relegate to the 2016-17 Eerste Divisie. However, this decision is not yet final, as FC Twente have lodged an official protest. Should FC Twente not retain their place in the Eredivisie, De Graafschap will be granted the vacant spot despite losing the relegation playoffs in the previous season.
