In the build-up to the annual general meeting of the German Football League (DFL), set to be held on 31 March, the DFL executive committee has made a recommendation for the continued suspension of the current Bundesliga season. The executive committee proposes that all match operations in the top two tiers of German football should be suspended until at least 30 April.

An excerpt from the press statement released by the DFL reads: ''In light of the potential existential threat several clubs are faced with, and, out of a sense of responsibility for the 56,000 people employed both directly and indirectly in the industry, the general meeting held on 16 March concluded with unanimous support for a 30 June target date for the conclusion of the league, insofar as this would be legally permissible and, of course, justifiable in terms of health and safety. The DFL is currently working under high pressure to develop plans for matches to be held - depending on the circumstances - without spectators in the stadium and with a minimum number of persons present to perform functions related to sport, general organisation and media.''
