The Eredivisie match between Groningen and Ajax on Sunday was cut short after fireworks were repeatedly thrown on the pitch by some fans.
The game was first interrupted in the sixth minute when smoke bombs filled the air and a fan ran on the field with a banner demanding the resignation of the Groningen board. The referee decided to take the players to the dressing room.
After a brief pause, the match resumed, but soon more fireworks were hurled on the pitch, forcing the referee to abandon the game for good, according to the new rules introduced by the Dutch football association last month.
The incident came after a similar episode in the Dutch Cup semi-final between Ajax and Feyenoord in early April, when Ajax midfielder Davy Klaassen was hit by a lighter thrown from the crowd and suffered a head injury, delaying the game for a long time.
The Dutch football association has vowed to crack down on crowd violence and stop any match where a player or an official is hit by an object from the stands.
