The German Football Association officially gave the green light for the restart of the 3.Liga on Thursday, with 94.9 percent of the 253 members voting in favour. As mentioned in DFB’s press release on Thursday, the league will begin where they left off on May 30th when the season was interrupted on account of the COVID-19 crisis.

DFB Bundestag has also voted to cancel the U19 and U17 league seasons. That means that the Bayern Munich amateurs will finish first and third in their respective youth leagues.

Bayern Munich II will have their first match after the restart on May 30, against FC Ingolstadt. Their first home game will be on June 3 against SC Preußen Münster, according to the press release. The league is set to finish the season on July 4. Bayern’s campus director Jochen Sauer assured that the club will do its part to make sure that all hygiene rules and regulations are observed by everyone (FCBayern.com):

We are glad that we have been given the green light to continue the season in the 3.Liga. We will take extra care to observe the hygiene rules and regulations and discuss this topic at length with our team.
