BREAKING: Germany gives Bundesliga permission to resume from 2nd half of May

The Bundesliga has been given the green light by the government to resume in the second half of May. The DFL will have a conference with the clubs tomorrow to discuss the details of the resumption of games.

Germany's Bundesliga football has been given permission to restart behind closed doors in the second half of May in a video conference of Chancellor Angela Merkel with state premiers.

The government has told the Bundesliga, according to Bild, that they can pick a date in that timeframe for a return. The earliest option available would see the first action played on May 15.

After the decision in Wednesday's meeting of German states and chancellor Merkel, the league now has to decide whether to start on May 15 or 22.

Chancellor Merkel held a meeting with the 16 heads of state on Wednesday morning at 10am to discuss Germany's plans for easing the lockdown – with some measures having been lifted on Monday.

The Bundesliga had initially hoped to resume on May 9, although that was pushed back. Follow us on Twitter and on Facebook
