The Bundesliga is set to get the green light to return on May 15 with the German government poised to agree on measures to further ease coronavirus restrictions. German football has been on hold since March 11 due to the coronavirus crisis.
Reuters reports suggest that top-flight matches could be allowed to take place again from May 15. Chancellor Angela Merkel is scheduled for a conference call on Wednesday to discuss how the country will look to ease their measures.
However, these games would be behind closed doors with no fans and measures in place to keep any risk of infection to a minimum.
The reports come just hours after ten Bundesliga players tested positive for Covid-19 out of 1,724 tests carried out across Germany's top two flights. Cologne registered three cases while Stuttgart had one "inconclusive result".
