German Football League, the Bundesliga is hoping to make a comeback on May 9 despite sporting activities being suspended worldwide following the outbreak of Coronavirus.
The Bundesliga is hoping to return to action with plans to play spectator-free games in May.
The decision comes at the back of a meeting between the German Football League (DFL), responsible for operating the Bundesliga and the second division and the 36 professional clubs held on Thursday to discuss a restart of the season next month in anticipation to finish the current season.
“If we start on 9 May, we are ready. If it is later, we will be ready again,” DFL chief executive Christian Seifert said on Thursday.
“For us, what is decisive is what the politicians will decide. It is not for us to decide when. Games without spectators are not what we want – but at the moment the only thing that seems feasible,” he added.
Meanwhile, Germany’s football authorities still face some huge questions before they get the green light to resume football in the country behind closed doors.
