Damn there's no other league that manages their social media accounts like Bundesliga. I really liked this video, I appreciate the fact that you provided information about the measures in some detail to the fans who are curious about this.

This is what you call professionalism not like the Premier league where players, managers alike are looking at their own agenda's and trying to get an extra season in the league. 👏👏👏👌👌👌

Well done Germany. you did it, you have impressed me once again. 👏
This is very futuristic. I wonder what would happen if somehow football games and VR were combined for a more immersive experience, and if you can have holograms of people in the stands with their audio. I can only imagine attending a game from across the world. I wonder if that could ever be a reality if more pandemics keep occurring.
This is why Germany has so few cases and deaths, everything is planned out to the minute detail and done so efficiently.

So you're encouraging the players to socially distance themselves from each other before and after the game, what about during? Are tackling and challenging for balls in the air still allowed?

Germany are lucky they have the resources to this efficiently. Although, they have been exceptionally smart during the pandemic, so just saying they have money isn't enough when recognizing how well Germany has handled this.
Bundesliga is so exciting that the top 6 teams are actually having a great chance of winning the league. People who say EPL and LaLiga are the best should definitely watch Bundesliga until the end of the season
Bundesliga is number 1 just like the first league back

Football without fans is so empty but the well being of everyone, from the players to the fans, is far more important right now.
Without fans it's gonna look like training and really, its gonna be difficult to watch without that vibrant atmosphere. Needs must
Very nice it is inspiring to many other sports like cricket. We want ipl in this manner.
