The return of Bundesliga has been pushed back a week by German chancellor Angela Merkel to incorporate a two-week quarantine.
The league was due to return on on 15 May but has been delayed until the 22 May as Merkel prescribed a mandatory two-week quarantine for all clubs.
This comes after a total of 10 positive cases of COVID-19 were confirmed across tier one and two German clubs.
The isolation can be done in focused training camps, allowing teams to continue with preparations so that they are ready to return to action behind closed doors later this month.
It is a high possibility that games could be played behind closed doors for up to the end of next season until a coronavirus vaccine comes to fruition.
The Bundesliga is set to be the first major European league to begin again with La Liga, Serie A and the Premier League all working on plans to return.
