Bundesliga Set to Return

Germany's health minister and two state premiers have both indicated football could make a comeback next month, albeit behind closed doors. Top-flight football hasn't been in play for over a month due to COVID-19.

Football returning to action in Germany drew a step closer to becoming a reality on Monday as senior politicians welcomed the possibility of the Bundesliga restarting as early as May 9.

The date has been proposed by Bundesliga officials as well as Bavarian state Premier Markus Söder and Armin Laschet, the state premier of Germany's most populous state North Rhine-Westphalia, who both said they would not stand in the way of football coming back next month.

Laschet cautioned that a full concept for hygiene and security would be required while Söder said: "Perhaps from May 9" that "a round of so-called ghost matches" could be played without fans and behind closed doors.
