Today (12 May), the Wolves move into their quarantine training camp until the final match of the season, as required by the DFL. VfL are taking up residence in The Ritz-Carlton in Wolfsburg, meaning the team are staying in familiar surroundings and will carry out their training sessions at the Volkswagen Arena. In order to further reduce the risk of infection for the final stage of the season, the Green-and-Whites will only move between the hotel, Volkswagen Arena and VfL-Center. All requirements of the DFL’s hygiene concept, as well as regular testing, social distancing rules and face coverings, apply at all times.
VfL supports DFL measures
“We fully back these measures,” commented sporting director Marcel Schäfer. “We’re going into quarantine well prepared, as we already know many of the processes from last year. Although the restrictions are tight, everything is very well organised. We’re just trying to limit contact as much as possible.”
The former VfL player is not worried about the possibility of cabin fever over the coming days. “We have a big target in our sights, which has bound us together all season. With the situation we’re in, the predominant feeling is excitement for the challenges and the two upcoming matches, where we can achieve something really great. We’re thankful that we get to play the season to a finish.”
