Four ways coronavirus pandemic is going to impact Bayern Munich’s 2019/20 campaign.
Every sporting event, including football, has come to a standstill across the globe due to the coronavirus outbreak. Bayern Munich also have to halt their season as DFL announced yesterday that the Bundesliga is suspended till April 2.
Apart from Bundesliga, Die Roten’s Champions League campaign has been halted as UEFA announced on Friday that next week’s CL and Europa League games are postponed. The whole of Europe is not set to see any live football action for the next three weeks, and it may be longer if the situation doesn’t improve.
The decision from football’s governing bodies is right as the health of players and fans is the utmost priority. Moreover, the prospect of playing games behind closed doors will put the health of players at risk. Serie A has already shown how persisting with games had led to many players getting diagnosed with the virus.
There will be repercussions of this abrupt halt to footballing action. Karl-Heinz Rummenigge stressed on the fact that clubs rely on television revenue, so season needs to be concluded behind closed doors. Apart from the financial point of view, the club’s sporting plans and ambitions will be affected. Here are four ways Bayern’s season will be affected due to coronavirus.
