The opening game of the 3rd division between VfL Osnabrück and MSV Duisburg is canceled.
The German Football Association canceled the match planned for this Friday at 7 p.m.
The governing body of the association agreed to a corresponding application from Duisburg after the responsible health department had imposed a quarantine on the team and the MSV coaching team.
Excluded from this are recovered and fully vaccinated players, as the DFB announced.
The mandatory Covid-19 tests had positive results in three Duisburg players last week.
All three professionals have been in quarantine since then.
The PCR tests in the players and support staff on Wednesday gave another positive result, whereupon the Duisburg health department issued a quarantine for the team.
A catch-up date for the encounter has not yet been set.
The MSV Duisburg has also already submitted an application to postpone the game against TSV Havelse scheduled for July 30th.
The DFB wants to decide on this in the next few days.
