The German Bundesliga will go back behind closed doors from Nov. 2 for the rest of the month as the country's government combats the second wave of the coronavirus pandemic with several restrictions to public life.
Although the restrictions doesn’t come into full effect until Monday, weekend games can still go ahead with few fans allowed.
Heading into the season, German clubs were allowed to bring back up to 20% of their fans if local health authorities approved their hygiene concepts and infection numbers remained below a seven-day incidence of 35
"If the Bundesliga is suspended again, if we are not allowed to play even without fans, bit-by-bit several clubs would have to declare bankruptcy," Rummenigge told newsmen on Tuesday. "And as a result, the Bundesliga would be in danger of collapsing entirely."
