The Bundesliga was suspended in mid-March after the devastating effect of the viral disease across the world with Germany having recorded over 8,000 deaths so far, despite regarded as one of the lowest in Europe.

The resumption of the German domestic league will, however, come with strict compliance to safety regulations including no pre-match handshakes and photographs.
