On the site we often refer to it as the Belgian Eerste Klasse, but it has a few other names;

  • Belgian First Division A
  • Jupiler Pro League

There are some historical names too;

  • 1895–1904: Coupe de Championnat (Championship Cup)
  • 1904–1926: Division I
  • 1926–1952: Division d’Honneur (Division of Honour)
  • 1952–1993: Division I
  • 1993–2008: Jupiler League
  • 2008–2016: Jupiler Pro League
  • 2016-: Belgian First Division A

Eerste Klasse is German for First Class.

European qualifications

This competition has a unique format for European places.

The league which consists of 16 clubs is split into three groups about February time; one contests the title and main European places. The other two produce a group winner, and the winner of the knockout between the group winners gets a UEFA Europa League place.


Why we love the Belgian Eerste Klasse

As well as the value we think it can provide as a football bettor, we also just enjoy watching the games. Much like the Belgian Cup we think the games are very entertaining and provided great end-to-end football.
