German Bundesliga to be first major football league to played behind closed door

The last game was played on 11 March with each club having nine or 10 matches left to play. Games will be behind closed doors.

The German Bundesliga will be the world's first major football league to return following the coronavirus pandemic when it does restart.

The English and Spanish top flights are hoping to return next month, while Italian teams have been allowed to start individual training. The top leagues in France and the Netherlands are not finishing after being cut short.

Only a handful of low-profile football leagues - in countries like Belarus and Nicaragua - have continued during the coronavirus pandemic.

Tuesday saw the return of South Korea's baseball division, with their football league set to return on Friday.
