Bundesliga to restart May 15


By Agency Report

The Bundesliga will resume on 15 May, the German league confirmed on Wednesday, after Chancellor Angela Merkel and state leaders gave the green light to restart behind closed doors following weeks of shutdown imposed to control the spread of the coronavirus.

The German Football League (DFL) confirmed the restart date to AFP subsidiary SID on Wednesday night.

“After weighing up all the arguments, the DFL Executive Committee decided today… to resume play in the Bundesliga and 2nd Bundesliga from 15 May 2020,” the DFL said in a statement to magazine Kicker.

Germany’s top-flight will become the first of Europe’s major leagues to return to the field.

“Matches will be allowed under the approved rules,” said Merkel at a press conference in Berlin.

Germany’s top politicians approved a plan for the Bundesliga to resume in stadiums without spectators and with players regularly tested.
