Belgian football was put on hold on Thursday until 1 May to combat the spread of the coronavirus, the national association said.

"In the meantime our crisis team will be looking at different scenarios concerning finalising competitions," the association said in a statement.

As a result the Belgian Cup final between Club Brugge and Antwerp scheduled for 22 March has been postponed.
