Austrian Bundesliga targets June re-start

 

Austrian authorities on Tuesday set out a plan for the restart of the country's top-flight in June, after the season had been on hold since mid-March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

 

The president of the Austrian Football League Christian Ebenbauer said "as regards the schedule, if full training restarts on May 15, then I assume we can continue the championship in the first week of June."

 

Team training is due to start this Friday, having previously only been allowed with a reduced number of players and matches will be held behind closed doors. 

 

Players will have to undergo regular tests for the virus.
