- The Bundesliga plans to restart season next weekend.
- Games will be played in accordance with strict guidelines to limit the threat of the coronavirus spread.
- The Eintracht Frankfurt sporting director has confirmed that home clubs face the risk of losing a clash if large crowds come to support their team.
The Bundesliga is set to introduce a bizarre rule to prevent fans from gathering up outside the stadium to support their team. Fredi Bobic, a sporting director at Eintracht Frankfurt, told ESPN that his club had made efforts to ward of supporters from showing up on matchdays.
"We talked to many fans and absolutely asked them to stay at home. If they show up, we lose the match. The rules are very strict," he said.
"The Bundesliga will award the away team the victory if many fans gather in front of the stadium and endanger public health."
The Bundesliga plans to return to action next weekend behind closed doors.
The German Football Federation has issued strict guidelines for teams to follow to ensure safety.
However, the campaign resumption in Germany is already under threat as Dynamo Dresden's entire squad and coaching staff have been put on isolation after two players of the Bundesliga 2 side tested positive for coronavirus.
