Eredivisie supporters could have a long wait before watching their teams in action based on what the Dutch health minister has told parliament.

All sport in the Netherlands is currently at a standstill due to the coronavirus pandemic and the government have banned all sporting events until 1 September at the earliest.

After the ban the Dutch Football Association (KNVB) decided that the current Eredivisie season could not be finished, even without supporters, and the latest development leaves next season in some doubt.

Dutch health minister Hugo de Jonge has written to parliament to inform them that even if the ban is lifted in September, sport will go ahead without fans in attendance.

"We cannot yet mention a date for the last step, the mass gatherings," wrote de Jonge.

"That is actually only possible if there is a vaccine and no one knows how long it will take. We hope of course soon, but a year or more is very real."
