Women’s Bundesliga

The women’s Bundesliga will restart on May 29, following the coronavirus stoppage, the German Football Association (DFB) said on Wednesday after a meeting with the clubs.

The DFB said the competition was among the sports events which had been given the green light to resume by local health authorities who have the final say.

“I am very happy that the clubs of the women’s Bundesliga have expressed their unity in favour of continuing the season,” said DFB president Fritz Keller.

“This is exactly what we need in the crisis. The return of the women’s Bundesliga to the pitch is another important step towards a kind of normality in football as well as in society.

“The women’s Bundesliga is thus taking on a pioneering role in international women’s football.”

The men’s Bundesliga resumed last Saturday, and it is the first major European league to do so.
