The German Football League (DFL) announced on Tuesday it will propose the Bundesliga suspension, due to the coronavirus pandemic, is extended to late-April.

On March 16, the DFL, which runs Germany’s two top divisions, put them on hold until at least April 2 because of the COVID-19 outbreak.

The DFL will propose the extension to its 36 clubs at a meeting on March 31.

“The Presidium of the General Assembly will recommend a further suspension of game operations in the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 until at least April 30” the DFL said.

It repeated its aim to finish the campaigns before June 30 and added: “The DFL is currently working intensively on concepts to play games at a given time – due to the situation – even without spectators and with a minimal use of workers in the areas of sport, general organisation and the media.”

Television rights represent a large part of the income for top-flight clubs and playing games behind closed doors but live on television would lower the financial impact of the pandemic.
