The Bundesliga are aiming to become the first major European league to resume action – with a return set for early May amid the coronavirus outbreak.
All 18 teams in the German Bundesliga have recommenced training, while following health guidelines.
And chief executive officer Christian of the Bundesliga Seifert told the New York Times that action is set to get back underway at all 36 stadiums in Germany’s top two tiers.
The remaining nine fixtures will be completed by the end of June… before the Premier League is likely to have gotten back underway at all.
But there will be no fans in the stadiums, with German football’s return to be a television only event.
Seifert confirmed that matches are set to remain behind closed doors for the duration of 2020.
Germany has the fifth-highest number of confirmed coronavirus cases in the world, with over 107,000 to date.
But their survival rate has been the highest on the planet, as they possess the best testing resources.
