Borussia Dortmund’s Sunday match against Mainz 05 has been postponed. After a significant COVID-19 outbreak among the Mainz squad infected more than 20 players, the DFL has decided to grant Mainz’s request to postpone the game.

Almost two years to the date since COVID first arrived in Europe, its impact on football games is still highly noticeable in Germany. Football stadiums have only just begun to increase capacity, to levels that are still far below what would be considered normal. Today’s news is proof that the COVID pandemic is far from over. Hopefully Mainz’s players recover as quickly as possible so that they do not miss any more games.

The match has been rescheduled for Wednesday, March 16th at 6:30 PM EST.
