German women’s championship will continue again in closed fields on May 29, Germans’ football federation (DFB) declared on Wednesday, after a suspension of almost three months due to the coronavirus.
The men’s season already reopened last weekend. It also resumed the same way as women’s league. Without fans and under strict health measures designed to minimize the threat from the coronavirus.
“I am very happy that the Bundesliga’s women’s clubs have come out in favor of the continuation of the season,” said DFB president Fritz Keller. “It’s precisely this unity that we need during this crisis.”
Most clubs had previously voted overwhelmingly to reopen the season in favor of opening in a meeting of officials on April 30. FC Cologne abstained.
When the season was halted after 16 games, Wolfsburg topped the table with 46 points, eight ahead of second-placed Bayern Munich.
