DFL: Rapid tests are sufficient – quarantine training camp remains an option
The corona cases have recently increased in German professional football. The second division side was particularly hard hit. Within a short time, Jahn Regensburg, Holstein Kiel and Hannover 96 went into isolation, which is why some games had to be relocated. However, there is less and less space for catch-up appointments in the end of the season, which is why the DFL with a view to the English week rising between April 16 and 26, set its sights on a quarantine training camp. The approximately 1,600 people from 36 clubs involved were then only allowed to leave their hotel for training, games and away trips.
According to picture information will initially be based on the recommendation of the Task Force Sports Medicine / Special Games and the Football Commission renounced it. The daily rapid tests introduced in March have paid off as they reduced the risk of transmission within the team. However, a quarantine training camp is not completely off the table. It is possible that the DFL will use it for the season finale in May. This should then ensure a regular end to the season.
