The German football league has announced the Bundesliga season will restart on May 16th, after the government gave the green light on a return to action. It’s been almost two months since a ball was last kicked.
When does the Bundesliga start again?
The German Bundesliga I and II both recommence on Saturday 16 May. All games in both divisions will be staged behind closed doors as a health measure and all teams and backroom staff have undergone rigorous medical tests leading up to the restart. The notorious ‘RevierDerby’ is the top flight opener as Borussia Dortmund face local rivals Schalke 04 with table topping Bayern Munich in action on Sunday.
