German football league may resume next month

Germany’s Bundesliga could take a step closer to becoming the first major football league to resume.

The German Football League is meeting at 10:00 BST (09:00 GMT) to discuss Germany’s top two divisions returning on either 9 or 16 May.

Final approval would be needed by Chancellor Angela Merkel and state leaders on 30 April.

The Belarus Premier League is the only one in Europe which has not been stopped because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Meanwhile, European football’s governing body Uefa is expected to announce today how teams can qualify for next season’s European competitions if domestic leagues are cancelled.
