The Bundesliga will likely finish this current season without supporters in the stadium, according to CEO Christian Seifert.

"Professional football can only function when we play," said Seifert. "When the time comes, we will be ready and prepared and we are looking forward to it.

"If we can play games, it is to be expected that they will be without fans for some time. Maybe even into the new season or until the end of the year."

Seifert added that the league will not return until April 30th at the earliest.

The CEO also said that the plan is to finish the season by June 30th, taking players to the end of their current contract.
