That just shouldn't be done. "

"If the teams, the supervisors and all those directly involved remain healthy and that is checked continuously, the season can be over."

The 61-year-old explicitly pointed out that the games should take place without spectators

From the point of view of Rangnick, that wouldn't be a big problem for the players. “In the past, we have had test games closed to the public. It was a matter of fact, it was about tactics, form and regular positions, ”said the former sports director and trainer of RB Leipzig .

Bundesliga in the Corona break: does it start earlier? Spahn gives soccer Germany hope

Corona crisis in the Bundesliga: when will it go on?

Update from April 12: It's been  a month since the ball rolled in the Bundesliga *. The catch-up game Gladbach against Cologne, which went down in history as the first ghost game * in the league *, was the last game for the time being. Then the corona virus forced the entire sports world * to pause indefinitely.

But when can players and fans enjoy Bundesliga football * again? In a report by Bild  , May 9 was the starting date in the room, but the league does not have this in its own hands. Because even a Bundesliga without a spectator would have to be justifiable from a medical perspective before it is approved. According to the virologist Prof. Alexander Kekule , some general conditions, such as regular corona tests on players, should be in place for this case. 

In addition, football should not be preferred to other economic sectors. Some politicians, including Christian Lindner (FDP) and Karl Lauterbach (SPD) were critical of the Bundesliga restart. 

Bundesliga: Will things continue soon after the Corona break? 

A season break, which would mean a financial disaster for many clubs, could be prevented in the event of a late restart . FIFA has now decided that all leagues worldwide, if  necessary, can end their seasons by the end of October . The transfer periods should also be adjusted as part of this. The unusually exciting championship in the Bundesliga * could still be concluded with a winner in the foreseeable future. FC Bayern * still has the chance to win their next title this year *. And should the master party not take place until the end of October, the temperatures could already make for an icy party. 

First announcement of April 10: The Corona pandemic * caused the interruption of the European football leagues, including the German Bundesliga *, weeks ago 

Since the beginning of the compulsory break, one has been wondering how the professional leagues should go on. The German Football League (DFL) recently commented on how to proceed, while a newspaper is already writing about the league association's  plans

Bundesliga: Will things continue soon after the Corona break? 

There was also a lot of discussion about the "second" start date of the first and second Bundesliga * . Since the association had stopped playing until at least April 30th, the earliest date would be the weekend of May 2nd. However, in a video session with DFB representatives, a clear tendency towards the following weekend on May 9 should have been communicated, as the picture writes. However, a final decision is still pending. 

The decision-making power over the top two leagues lies with the DFL anyway. The video session in question was primarily about the 3rd division , for which the German Football Association (DFB) is responsible. On May 16, the third-highest league could therefore possibly continue.

Bundesliga sequel in May? There is obviously a first tendency

“When planning, the DFB, with the 3rd division and the women's Bundesliga, is also based on the DFL and its models for the operation of the federal leagues *. However, these are currently only business games that depend on many external factors, ”a DFB spokesman quoted in the picture .

Finally, there has been a lot of public discussion and speculation about the work of the "Task Force Sports Medicine / Special Game Operations", the founding of which was decided by the # DFL General Assembly on Tuesday.

The clearly intended target of the top two leagues to finish the season until June 30, but what mystery games * indefinitely necessary would. The protective measures for spectators * would probably be too complex in the case of full stadiums. The DFL is also planning to play ghost games * in the Bundesliga and, according to the picture , is said to have already laid down the provisions for the games without spectators.

When resuming play, only a minimum of people should be allowed in the stadium. Specifically, there are 239 people who should be allowed to enter the stadium at the games, 126 of them inside - including the two teams. 

Bundesliga: Specific numbers for ghost games - 239 people allowed

The teams will only be accompanied by eight coaches , supervisors and doctors to the game, and there will be only four ball boys instead of twelve . The largest proportion of the admitted persons applies to the reporting, because 36 persons are supposed to be responsible for the transfers. In addition, 70 folders should prevent fans from clashing.

When games in the stadiums of the Bundesliga * rise again and whether FC Bayern * will be able to expand its title collection * this year remains uncertain . Some Bundesliga clubs * like FC Bayern * have already dared to play in small groups, but cyber training is no longer an exception. Other measures relating to training operations as well as a waiver of wages * were also determined by the record champion. 

The situation is quite different in the US meanwhile. There wrestling shows have now been classified as systemically important.
