The 36 clubs of the Bundesliga and 2nd Bundesliga discussed the restart of match operations in the 2019/2020 season by video conference during an extraordinary DFL general meeting on Thursday and finally set the date of May 16, 2020 as the exact date of restart. The DFL is thus guided by the wording of the decision of the federal and state governments that "from the second half of May" a return of the Bundesliga and the 2nd Bundesliga is acceptable.
The season continues with the 26th matchday, the other matchdays follow in the order originally planned. It is planned that the last match day of the Bundesliga will be played on June 27, 2020. Since an adjustment of the general schedule is necessary for the scheduling of the match days up to the end of the season, there are currently final coordination talks with the German Football Federation (DFB).
