Bundesliga might resume from May 15 under closed doors

Bundesliga might resume from May 15 under closed doors
Football in Germany has been suspended since mid-March, with the virus having infected over 150,000 people in the country. Almost 6,300 people have died of the disease in the country. Play could come as early as May 15, according to media reports, making it the first of the five major European domestic leagues to resume since the global coronavirus pandemic began.
The majority of Bundesliga clubs have nine matches left to play in this campaign - Eintracht Frankfurt and Werder Bremen have 10 - with leaders Bayern Munich four points ahead of Borussia Dortmund in second.Two of Germany's neighbours, the Netherlands and France, have ended their seasons.

But more than a month after Germany suspended all but essential social and commercial life to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus, politicians are at odds over how far and how fast to move.

Germany's state premiers will agree on measures to further ease coronavirus restrictions in a teleconference with Chancellor Angela Merkel scheduled for Wednesday, two people familiar with the preparations told media on Monday.

German states are also set to allow the Bundesliga soccer league to resume matches, probably from May 15, under strict conditions without fans in stadiums according to sources. At the same time, state premiers will allow outdoor sports for non-professionals and children, the sources added.

The states will also agree to reopen schools for all grades step-by-step, though most children will only be allowed to go to class in rotating shifts, not on daily basis, the sources said.
