According to media reports, representatives of the German government, federal and state governments have agreed to pave the way for the resumption of German Bundesliga matches without a hearing.
And at a time when the German League League has called for a general meeting of its members, but without disclosing the agenda, German football will be on a detailed date this Wednesday through a government meeting which will discuss the possibility of giving the green light to resume Bundesliga competitions behind closed doors a few days later, i.e. from the fifteenth this month, with serious health restrictions for the emergence of the coronavirus.
The Bundesliga will be the first competition of the five main national leagues in Europe, on the road to the resumption of the season, after most football activities in the world have stopped since mid-March.
The German states are about to agree to resume the season, and the decision will be made during a telephone meeting with Chancellor Angela Merkel tomorrow, Wednesday, sources said. The matches will be held under strict conditions and will be finless.
So far, Portugal, Poland, and Hungary have announced dates for the resumption of local competitions, which will all be close to the end of this month. Teams have been allowed to resume training since the middle of last month, with the players divided into small groups and the next step will be to allow the group exercises to begin.
The German Bundesliga has presented a plan to maintain the health and safety of players, which allows matches to be held without supporters and includes regular checks of players without placing the rest of the team in quarantine if positive cases arise.
However, the association said that if a player is infected, decisions about the measures will depend on the local health authorities.
And revealed on Monday the Association of Professional Clubs in Germany, there are ten positive cases of the coronavirus after performing 1,724 tests in 36 first and second class clubs.
The media has speculated that the hope of resuming competition had been compromised by the behavior of some Hertha Berlin players on Monday. Hertha striker Salomon Kalou posted a video on Facebook in which he shook hands with teammates without taking anti-virus measures into account.
