The German Bundesliga is set to become the first major league in Europe to resume action after the coronavirus has put football on hiatus.

Football has been suspended since early March across most parts of the world and up till now there has been no clue as to when our beloved game will resume, due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Bundesliga is set to resume on May 9 and the German football federation has issued a set of guidelines for the players to follow ahead of restarting the season, according to the Daily Mail.

The guidelines state that while players can choose to either live in the team hotel or at home, sex and kissing is banned if they have a partner with the coronavirus symptoms.

The stadiums should admit a very limited number of people – only 300 at once, which includes: four policemen, 10 journalists, four ball boys, eight groundsmen and 50 security staff.

All players will undergo routine temperature checks, while social distancing will become something of a norm during training and team meetings.

Moreover, all players will have to change and wash their own kits at home. Team meals are also off the table, the guidelines insist.

The rivals teams shall not greet or shake hands with the opponents, the guidelines add.
