Bundesliga ready to resume on May 9 if politicians deem it safe

Speaking in a press conference on Thursday afternoon, DFL CEO Christian Seifert confirmed the Bundesliga will be ready to resume on May 9, should it be safe to do so.

“The Bundesliga is ready to resume, no matter whether on May 9 or at a later date,” said Seifert. “It’s not up to us to find a date. The political decision makers decide.”

Should the Bundesliga resume, a maximum of 213 personnel will be allowed inside the stadium and a further 109 outside, in order to practise social distancing skills.
