The Dutch football champions are the winners of the highest league in Dutch football, which since 1956 is the Eredivisie.
The championship was first awarded in 1898. Until 1954 the national champion was determined by means of a championship competition between the champions of the different regions. This system continued for two years after the introduction of professional football in 1954 until the creation of the Eredivisie for the 1956–57 season. Starting with the 1956–57 season, the winner of the Eredivisie is recognized as the national champion.
