The soccer women of VfL Wolfsburg have to play their Bundesliga home game against SGS Essen without spectators.

The Sunday of the Dead is a silent holiday of the Protestant Church on which "public sporting events of a commercial nature" are not allowed according to the Lower Saxony Public Holidays Act, as the club announced on Wednesday.
