The DFL committee has recommended extending the suspension period in the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 until the end of next month.
No football will be played in either of Germany’s top two divisions until the end of next month at the earliest. At a video conference on Tuesday which lasted several hours, the DFL decided to recommend suspending all Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 matches until at least 30 April due to the ongoing spread of the coronavirus. A final decision on the matter will be made at the clubs’ members’ meeting on 31 March.
As a result, the Wolves’ matches against Bayer Leverkusen (away), Eintracht Frankfurt (home), SV Werder Bremen (away) and SC Freiburg (home) will not be played next month. When the games will take place - if at all - remains unclear, but the Green-and-Whites will continue to train this week regardless.
“We support the decision”
VfL Managing Director Jörg Schmadtke: “People’s health is the most important thing, which is why this is absolutely the right decision. The football commission spoke via video conference following the DFL’s recommendation and unanimously support the decision. It also gives us a bit of light at the end of the tunnel and an idea of what may happen from the beginning of May. Regardless of whether the suspension period is extended, our team will continue to train as normal this week.”
