The Bundesliga has been given the green light to return to the green field in the coming weeks by Chancellor Angela Merkel. While May 15 remains the earliest possible date for the resumption of the season.
On Wednesday morning, it was reported that the return of the Bundesliga had been postponed by Angela Merkel for at least until May 22. After the clubs were asked to be quarantined for another two weeks before they could start the matches.
However, the German government has now approved the Bundesliga’s plan to return to the green field in the second half of May. Following a series of meetings that ended today.
It is now up to the Federation itself, the league and the clubs to decide on the exact date of return to the green field. But the German media report that this is most likely to happen on May 15.
Germany’s elite football league, which was suspended in mid-March, is now expected to become the first of Europe’s top five leagues to resume. Despite matches being played behind closed doors.
Most Bundesliga clubs have been in training since last month, and matches have been suspended since March, when almost all sports activities in the world were suspended.
