Next Bundesliga season to be without central hygiene concept
Frankfurt, June 9, 2022 The Bundesliga and second division of German football league will run the 20222023 season without a central hygiene concept, the organisers said on Thursday.
The special task force which helped clubs operate matches throughout the pandemic has been replaced by a permanent working group “Medicine in professional football”.
This new group will take on the duties of the task force and supplement the medical commission of the German football federation.
It will continue to retain a focus on developments in the pandemic and potentially impact on matches, the DFL said.
But it will also consider different health and medical topics around football under the leadership of Tim Mayer from Saarland University.
