Yesterday, the federal government and the federal states decided on further drastic measures to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. The agreed restrictions are aimed at significantly reducing personal contact and will take effect next Monday, 2 November 2020.

In light of this, the BVB Evonik Football Academy has also decided to suspend all training operations between 02.11.2020 and 31.11.2020. Consequently, the courses booked for the above period cannot take place as planned. If you have booked a course that is scheduled to take place during this period, we will inform you personally by email about the next steps and offer you and your child alternative options. We can only echo the sentiment of the open letter to the BVB fans, which states:

"We would like to send two messages to the BVB family going into November. Firstly, please know that nothing hurts us more than being without you. Because without you, there is no ''us''! Secondly, we hope that we can all get through this difficult time together; that we will look after ourselves and our neighbours; that we will keep our distance; wear masks; avoid crowds, refrain from private gatherings and parties. We're counting on you, Borussia fans!"
