Dutch league games suspended due to high winds

The Dutch football association called off all of Sunday's matches in the top-flight because of strong winds forecast to buffet the country.

The Royal Netherlands Football Association said in a statement on Saturday that, after discussions with clubs, police, and municipalities, it "concluded that because of the expected weather conditions the safety of supporters and players cannot be guaranteed."

The top three clubs -- Ajax, AZ Alkmaar and Feyenoord -- all were scheduled to play in the four matches scheduled for Sunday.

No new dates were immediately set.
