The Bundesliga return from the winter break with its empty stadiums. Starting in January, the German League matches will be played without public, behind closed doors, due to the progress of the micron variant in the country. “Big national events will no longer be allowed to have an audience. This applies, in particular, to football matches.” Chancellor Olaf Scholz announced.

The measure will take effect on December 28 and will apply in the Bundesliga when action returns on January 7. In the last month, teams from Bavaria, including Bayern, and those from Saxony, led by RB Leipzig, played with empty stands due to the increase in Covid-19 infections. In other places such as Dortmund, 15,000 spectators entered the last ‘Klassiker’, the maximum allowed by the national authorities. The season started with 25,000 fans or 50% of the stadium capacity and has been dwindling to zero. Now, the clubs will return to compete without public as after the return from confinement and last year.
