German Football Association (DFB) informed that the matches will be played under strict health protocols.
The league was suspended on March 13 but as the situation improved, players started practicing under strict condition by mid-April. The league will be played without any fans in the stadium. The management committee informed that there will be around 300 people including staff and officials present during matches. All the players and officials will undergo COVID-19 testing. As many labs have introduced quick tests for COVID-19, it has become easier to keep the risk of coronavirus in check.
Dynamo Dresden sports manager Ralf Minge informed, "In the past few weeks, we have made enormous efforts in terms of personnel and logistics in order to strictly implement all the prescribed medical and hygienic measures."
Dynamo Dresden is on the bottom of Bundesliga 2 and they were planning to start the season on May 17. However, under the current conditions, there would be delay for the team.
