The resumption of the Bundesliga season will make weekends “easier for everyone” in Germany during the coronavirus pandemic, says Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

The Bundesliga will restart on May 15 after the German government gave the green light to return to action.

The Bundesliga is the first of the major leagues in Europe to receive permission to resume play since the coronavirus pandemic took hold. Two of Germany’s neighbors, the Netherlands and France, have ended their seasons.

Rummenigge believes that the decision is an important step and one that can have a positive impact on society.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel confirms that the Bundesliga can resume this month, ending a two-month suspension caused by the coronavirus pandemic.

“FC Bayern feels great gratitude, satisfaction and a feeling of happiness. We have worked hard and long for this. With the green light from politicians, we have the requirements to restart the league. This is an important step for the Bundesliga.

“Bavarian Prime Minister Markus Söder has said that a weekend with the Bundesliga is much more bearable than a weekend without. This sentence says it all.

“We know that football is not of systemic importance. But football has a meaning for society. When we start playing in mid-May, these weekends will be easier for everyone. “

“The Bundesliga must be decided on the ground, unlike the Netherlands or France”

Rummenigge also congratulated the organizers for not choosing to end the competitions as did the neighbors of France and the Netherlands.

“It is important that the Bundesliga is decided on the field and not off the field like in the Netherlands or in France,” he added.

“It creates problems – who wins the championship, who qualifies for the Champions League, who will be relegated? This leads to dissatisfaction and legal problems.

“It’s good that the Bundesliga continues. It would have had a major financial impact if the Bundesliga had stopped. Great pain for all clubs. “
