German health minister endorses Bundesliga plan to resume play behind closed doors

Jens Spahn stated earlier today "The (football league's) basic plan makes sense and could serve as a model for other professional sports".

The German Football League (DFL), which operates Germany's top two divisions, is hoping to restart the season behind closed doors as soon as May 15 the first of the five major European domestic leagues to resume since the Covid-19 pandemic started.

The official announcement will come after the Committee of Sports holds a meeting on Wednesday and put its proposal forward to the government.
