Big kick-off in May as league set to return!

The Bundesliga could be the first football league to return to action, with a German minister suggesting that talks have begun over starting up again as early as May 9th.

Competitive football could to the country within a couple of weeks, although behind closed doors after German clubs recommenced training in early April.

In a statement, German Minister Markus Soder confirmed they have been in talks with the German FA over the return to football.

“The prerequisite is that there is a well-thought-out concept,” Soder said.

“What the DFL have presented shows that protective measures are in place. I could imagine that we can go back to the state of games behind closed doors.

“It is a tightrope walk. We now have to be careful not to overdo it or be frivolous. Games with audience participation are completely unthinkable. Games behind closed doors are also a tightrope walk.

“It is conceivable that we might be able to play a ghost round [behind closed doors] at the earliest from May 9th. It is clear: a weekend with football is much more bearable than a weekend without football.”

The German top tier stopped on March 13th but clubs were allowed to return to training on 6th April with restrictions in place.  They can only train in groups of five and with social distancing still in place.

  1. As long as we don’t start our premier again Sean couldn’t care less about German league. Null and void for me and liverpool get their just reward for keeping English clubs including us out of Europe for five years. What goes around as they say ! in my book conveniently liverpool supporters forgetting killing 60 odd Juventus supporters and 600more injured. Heysel some of us dont forget like that mob do . No more football till at least Sept and this virus is dead and buried.
