Weekly update: Bundesliga suspension continues

Updated: Mar 11, 2021

Along with the rest of Europe’s top football leagues, the Bundesliga remains suspended as a result of the ongoing coronavirus crisis that currently rocks the globe. The DFL had previously targeted early April to resume the competition, however this now appears impossible.

Many clubs have responded accordingly. The four Champions League representatives of 2019 (Bayern Munich, Bayer Leverkusen, RB Leipzig and Borussia Dortmund) have pledged €20million to aid any sides struggling financially in Germany, whilst the players of Union Berlin, who were enjoying a successful campaign after last season’s promotion, announced they will go entirely without their wages.

Other teams have followed suit, with players across the league also agreeing to wage cuts and many donating large sums of money to contribute to the fight against the pandemic.
