The Bundesliga is expected to return on May 15 with the German government set to give the green light on Wednesday, according to Reuters. Play has been suspended since March due to the coronavirus pandemic, but the league has been on a faster track compared to its European counterparts due to the high-level testing and supreme organization to handle the situation.
Bundesliga teams have been training in small groups for weeks. Some clubs, including Bayer Leverkusen, have long had pandemic task forces. In fact, Bayer quickly created a coronavirus delegation in February.
German chancellor Angela Merkel will have a teleconference with state leaders on Wednesday, with state leaders set to allow matches without fans and under strict conditions, including frequent testing, according to the report.
