football fans trépignent. It's been several weeks that they are being deprived of their favorite sport, which competitions have been arrested everywhere in the world with the establishment of the containment. While the League season 1 has been permanently halted by France, to the chagrin of Jean-Michel Aulas, president of olympique lyonnais, the football will resume its rights in Germany. The authorities have given their green light to the resumption of the Bundesliga from the weekend of may 16. But special instructions will be applied for the last nine days of the championship season, " explains Bild.
According to an internal document of the German football League (DFL), special attention will be provided... to the goal celebrations. No question that the players hug or jump all over to celebrate a goal from one of their teammates as they could have used a few weeks ago. It is thus recommended to settle for a "brief contact with the elbow or foot', without another outpouring of joy. It is not clear if the players are at risk of a sanction in the case where they do not comply with this set...
Mask obligatory on the bench
other measures will be applied for the resumption of the Bundesliga. It is thus asked to the players not to spit on the ground and do not touch or clapping hands at the time of replacement (the number of which has been increased to five, compared to three usually). The coaches will have to wear a mask, they have the right to withdraw "for instructions if they maintain a distance of 1.50 m, with all the other people," says the German newspaper. The mask will also be mandatory for all persons present on the bench, players or staff members.

The pre-match protocol will also be upset. The two teams will not be able to spend more than 30 or 40 minutes in the locker room. They will not fit at the same time on the field and will not be accompanied by children, as is traditionally the case. These measures should be applied until the end of the season. Other major european leagues, as English Premier League, the Spanish Liga or the Italian Serie A, could be revitalized in the coming weeks. Remains to be seen if the sanitary measures of the same kind will also be applied.
