The German Bundesliga will now resume in May and matches will be played without fans in stadiums until next, MySportDab reports.
There is signs of hope among all 36 clubs in the top two leagues welcoming their players back to training, while still observing health protocols in their areas.
Amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, it has become clear that the Bundesliga is the only European league that will return soon.
During an interview with New York Times, German Bundesliga chief executive officer Seifert revealed that the new plan is for matches to return to all 36 clubs in the top two league by May.
According to Seifert, All last nine matches scheduled for this season will be completed by July.
However, he admitted it a huge blow for fans who won’t be able to watch their teams play in stadiums across the country and will then watch the games from home on TV.
And Seifert does not believe that fans will be allowed into stadiums to watch their teams until the end of 2020.
MySportDab understands The Bundesliga will now allow only around 240 people including players, staffs, coaches, officials and production staff into the stadium for each game.
Also, Seifert suggested that the summer transfer market would fall to pieces.
‘In no time, I would say the transfer market this summer will not happen, it will collapse,’ he said.
‘Some agents will surely now have to work hard, or at least work; some leagues will understand that money is not coming automatically every month from heaven.’
