Cameroonians to look out for as the German Bundesliga Returns

Football is the most popular sporting discipline in the world with mad love from almost every individual. After the COVID-19 reached Europe, a lot of competitions got postponed. However the German Bundesliga is back

Sports, just like almost every other sector of business around the world has been greatly affected by the deadly Coronavirus pandemic. Games were suspended as a result of the pandemic which posed a huge threat on the health and well-being of the spectators and the team members. Some footballers and crew members even contracted the disease at its early start.

And as concerns heightened, FIFA, UEFA, and the European leagues after trying to find a solution concerning football’s return all agreed that health is the priority, and Social distancing was non-negotiable. Also, African football federations equally took the heat and competitions like the qualifiers for the CAN 2021 scheduled for 25-31 March, and the CHAN 2020 set to hold from 4 to 25 April were all suspended indefinitely.

However there’s now some form of hope as football lovers after missing the excitement that comes with the game have a break.

The German Bundesliga is set to resume come Saturday May 16, 2020 with about 18 clubs to take on the competition. The resumption of the game might offer a glimpse of what top level sports (tennis, basketball, rugby etc) will look like in these uncertain times. The German Chancellor Angela Merkel gave the league the go-ahead to resume play, with very high safety protocols put in place.

Each team will be quarantined together in a hotel before the first round of games kick off, and they will be tested for the COVID-19 before plays commences. As the season goes on, the players will be tested at least twice a week until the matches are completed.

Access to the stadiums will be strictly limited to a maximum of 300 people, including game officials, support staff and broadcast media. Players from the home team will drive themselves to the stadiums in their own cars, and representatives from the visiting teams will be split into small groups to travel in designated vehicles that will be disinfected after each use. Players will dress in several different locker rooms, and be kept apart from substitutes and shower separately. The success or failure of this German strategy may determine the fates of other sports leagues and major events that have been suspended around the world.

Now Cameroon is one country in Africa with talented footballers and some are representing in major leagues around the globe. As the Bundesliga will be back to your screens. Watch out for;
