Bundesliga To Resume Next Month Behind Closed Doors

Bundesliga To Resume Next Month Behind Closed Doors

Bundesliga fixtures are reportedly set to resume in May but may be played behind closed doors until the start of 2021.

Like every other league in Europe, the German top-flight has been suspended since mid-March.

But Bundesliga chief executive Christian Seifert has told the New York Times that games in the top two tiers will resume at the start of next month despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic engulfing the world.

However, Seifert added that matches are likely to be played without any fans present for the rest of 2020, with the suggestion of bringing supporters back into grounds in January.
