- The Bundesliga will resume action on May 9th despite the coronavirus pandemic.
- Guidelines have been issued by the German football federation for teams to follow.
- If these rules work, the Premier League may also follow their footsteps.
As the Bundesliga gears up to return to action on May 9th, the German football federation has issued a list of guidelines for the players to follow, reports the Daily Mail.
The directive reveals that while players can choose to either live in the team hotel or at home, sex and kissing is banned if they have a partner with symptoms.
Stadiums should allow only 300 people at once - a number that also includes four policemen, 10 journalists, four ball boys, eight groundsmen and 50 security staff.
Amidst constant temperature checks for the players, the need to minimize contact during training and team meetings has also been emphasized.
In addition to not eating meals together in the kitchen, players must change and wash their own kits at home.
The document also adds that no whispering shall be allowed along with no handshakes or greetings with players from the opposite team.
If this system works for the Bundesliga, the report suggests that the Premier League may also follow suit.
