The games will be played without the fans as confirmed by league board member Christian Ebenbauer but he is hopeful the fans will return to the stadiums soon.
Ghost games are an emergency plan and harm clubs financially. But we still have to pick up the ball and start again. And we hope that we can watch football with the spectators in the stadium again as soon as possible
The players, coaches, and other relevant officials will undergo PCR tests every week and in the event of an infection, only the person concerned has to be quarantined.
Furthermore, there will be no handshakes on the pitch and the goal celebrations should not take place with hugs and other caresses.
