- The Bundesliga hopes to return on May 9 with many clubs returning to training
- Top-flight airlines are trying to get a thumbs up from the German government
- But now the proposed season starts again doubtful amid reports of a new lockdown
- Germany is said to have seen a surge in new cases after relaxed restrictions

Top clubs in Germany have returned to training in the hope that the rest of the season can be resolved – providing the Chancellor Angela Merkel gives the go-ahead for the action to take place again.
The League had written on May 9 as a possible date for returning to the field, but that hope may have to be postponed in the middle after reports emerged that coronavirus cases had surged in the country, which could force Chancellor Angela Merkel to tighten up the lock after shops, schools and churches began to reopen.

The Bundesliga has planned to continue the season on May 9 with government approval
Based on timeThe reproduction rate of the German virus – which shows how many people are affected on average by coronavirus – has now reached 1.0, ‘the dividing line between growth and decline’.
Germany’s strict procedures during the pandemic have seen them deal with the disease better than most countries, but Merkel said hospitals would be overwhelmed if levels rose further, meaning a second lockdown would be “unavoidable”.
Government officials will meet on Thursday to decide on the next step in tackling the virus, with the club holding its breath in hopes of getting blessings to continue playing.

The Bundesliga has planned to play the rest of the campaign behind closed doors
The Bundesliga was stopped in early March when the disease began to spread throughout the country, but the club slowly returned to the training ground with stars placed in their steps in small groups.
The improving situation in Germany has given hope that the season will resume soon, despite watching the league being canceled in Belgium, the Netherlands and now France. Now concerns are mounting that the Bundesliga can follow suit.
The team returned to the field in small groups after relaxing from distancing social steps, and if the season continues, it will be done behind closed doors.

There are financial concerns from a number of clubs in German football, with 13 out of 26 in the German Football League facing bankruptcy if they cannot complete the campaign.
Without regular income from match day income, the team is left vulnerable – including top-flight Schalke, who are said to face bankruptcy in early May. Concerns have subsided, however, after one third of the remaining TV rights income season is paid.
But some clothing ‘might be squeezed further down’ if the domestic season cannot be closed, Seifert added. But he acknowledged that ‘national health always comes first’.
Germany has nearly 160,000 infections but only 6,000 deaths, which is a far lower number than people like Britain, Italy and Spain – all more than 20,000 deaths.
