The footballers in the region are preparing for the start of the point round - often in training camps in the sunny south. But here, too, the corona virus is thwarting some clubs.
Bad Tölz-Wolfratshausen - The kickers of SV Wackersberg-Arzbach, for example, had planned to complete their training sessions in Lugagnano di Sona. But the stay near Verona was canceled at short notice. Trainer Thomas Angermeier: "Because of the corona virus, we decided to do it." The decision was not easy for the coach and the board, but Angermeier makes it clear: "Not only the risk of infection, but also the danger there, possibly for a long time Being in quarantine was crucial. Our players, coaches and officials are all employed and often self-employed. The loss of earnings is not negligible. "
The Isarwinklers were actually advised to relocate on request to the tourist association in Lugagnano. "Of course it is not easy for the hotel operators there, other clubs have already canceled," said Angermeier. For example TSV Krumbach, against whom SV would have played a friendly in Italy.
SV Bad Heilbrunn also discusses cancellation
A cancellation of the training camp was also discussed at SV Bad Heilbrunn. The goal of the national league team is the Adriatic coast of Slovenia. "Italy is not far away," says captain Sebastian Mertens. But all 45 participants ultimately spoke in favor of starting the trip.
TSV Benediktbeuern has also completed training camps several times in the sunny south, but this year the club decided not to. "As if I had a premonition," said coach Willi Link. The Lenggrieser SC has also not completed a training camp. Trainer Martin Lindner: “After the extremely mild winter, the conditions in Lenggries are ideal. And for the camaraderie and even more team spirit, we stayed at the Lenggrieser Hütte on Seekar. "
TuS Geretsried and Waldram cancel
The football players of TuS Geretsried, on the other hand, had been looking forward to a few nice days on Lake Garda. They wanted to leave on Thursday morning, but the trip was canceled due to the Corona virus. "We left it up to the players to decide," says coach Martin Grelics. A third does not want to take the risk, explains the TuS coach. At DJK Waldram, the department management decided not to drive, explains Dominik Wamsler. It was not so much the risk of infection that played a role, but the fear of suddenly “getting stuck in a so-called quarantine zone”, he explains the cancellation of the training camp in Kurtinig in South Tyrol. "If Italy closes the borders for two weeks, you won't be able to get out," said the Waldram soccer boss. Hans Demmel / Rudi Stallein
