The Bundesliga may return on May 9

The Bundesliga may return behind closed doors on May 9, according to the prime ministers of the two German states. Markus Soder, Bavarian Prime Minister, and Armin Laschet, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Prime Minister, suggested that football could return sooner than many expected. At the same time, restrictions as long are followed, and safeguarding is in place. The general director of the German Football League (DFL), meanwhile, warned that football clubs would have to set a disciplined example for the rest of the population if the game resumed. “A prerequisite is a well-designed concept,” Laschet told reporters. “What the DFL has introduced over the past few days shows that there are guarantees.” I can imagine that we can return to games behind closed doors.”

‘Ghost games’

A colleague of Lachet, Soder, warned: “This is a walk on a cable. Now we have to be careful not to overdo it or be frivolous.” Games with crowds in the stadium are completely unthinkable. “Ghost games” is also an interference fit. “Maybe we can play in such a round of “ghost games” as early as May 9. “Weekends with football are much more portable than weekends without football.” DFL boss Seifert is optimistic that some solutions can be found. However, he also seeks not to undermine the continued seriousness coronavirus situation. “These are positive signals that were sent, he said. It gives both the Bundesliga and the Bundesliga two important perspectives. “Politics trusts us, and we and the players, in particular, should now be role models.”

DFL will pay attention to organizational and medical aspects

“This has a lot to do with hygiene measures and exemplary handling of social contacts. It’s important to be disciplined, not only for the employer but also for the fans.” Bayern Munich-CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge supported the DFL plans and stated that Soder and Laschet’s words were “a very positive signal for the resumption of the Bundesliga matches.” In a statement on Bayern’s website, Rummenigge added: “It is important that we take the legal and medical directions of politicians in an exemplary and severe manner to minimize health risks.” I want to thank the DFL leadership, led by Christian Seifert, for an excellent concept that pays full attention to organizational and medical aspects. “This concept is the basis for a positive and credible policy assessment.”
