+++ Bundesliga schedule suspended until 30th April +++

The DFL announced on Tuesday the postponement of the Bundesliga due to fears surrounding the recent outbreak of Coronavirus, meaning that no Bundesliga fixtures will take place until at least 30th April.

The DFB were in agreement with the decision, along with all 36 Bundesliga clubs who met at the general meeting in Frankfurt this afternoon.

The clubs will reconvene with the DFL on 17th April to come to a decision on how the season will progress.

+++ Markus Krösche on the situation +++

Sporting Director Markus Krösche shared his thoughts on Saturday 14th April regarding the measures being put in place to prevent the spread of Coronavirus.

"We have decided to take the following measures after hearing of the news that the Bundesliga will be suspended until 2nd April:

After today's training session, the players will be given two days off. The squad will undertake personalised individual training plans from Tuesday onwards. Normal training will resume on Friday.

That means training once a day in order to keep our fitness at the optimal level in preparation for the next game.

The players have been given certain instructions on how to behave. They are to remain in Leipzig and maintain as little contact with others as possible. They aren't in isolation, but are aware of what they need to be careful of." 

+++ Ticket information +++


If you have already placed your ticket onto the ticket exchange then you can leave it there, as we have not yet started the refunding process.

Your tickets will remain valid for when the match is rescheduled.

You can then decide if you would like to keep your ticket, or if you would like to have it refunded.


Since matchday 27 is no longer scheduled to take place, you are able to return your ticket for our trip to 1. FSV Mainz following the same procedures as for the home game against Freiburg.


The DFL will come to a decision during the final week of March as to whether these games will go ahead as planned.


Since UEFA decided to postpone this week's round of fixtures, the draw for the quarter final will no longer take place on 20th March as originally planned.

 +++ FIFA Guidelines +++
