They've done the same as in the UK for everything below the top 2 divisions i.e. no promotion or relegation -

And Planet Football's effort

In Spain discussions are ongoing between the RFEF and clubs in all Segunda B and Tercera divisions to end their seasons. It looks as if there are three points to vote on - end the season as it stands with positions taken as they are (I can't see anything around using PPG or similar though), no relegations, and an 'express' playoff to be taken in each group (the 4x Segunda B divisions and 18 Tercera divisions) to decide the overall winner. See link below from El Mira (Andalucian newspaper):

https://elmira.es/18/04/2020/asi-seria-el-playoff-de-ascenso-en-segunda-b-y-tercera/?utm_medium=Social&utm_source=Twitter#Echobox=1587212695

However things get a bit more complex beyond that as the votes are then held by each individual football federation, remaining focussed on Andalucia they overwhelmingly voted in favour of ending the season now (point 1), no relegations (point 2) and having the express playoff (point 3). According to the link below to the Andalucian Football Federation statement they then offered each team at that level an option on what they wanted this playoff to look like! Some teams said between the top 4, some said between the top 6 and some said between the top 8! Clear as mud!

No events to take place in the Republic of Ireland with crowds of 5000 and over until September. This will not impact on domestic football should it be possible to get going again.

No professional football in The Netherlands until at least 1st September -

KNVB saying it intends not to continue playing the 19/20 season but will consult UEFA before making a final decision. Ajax and AZ are level on points with Ajax leading on goal difference.
