The DFL recommended a minute's silence for fixtures on the upcoming matchday of the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2 (20-22 October) to remember all innocent victims and their relatives after the devastating events in the Middle East.
The recommendation is made in coordination with the German Football Association, which is planning a similar approach for DFB-organised competitions such as the 3. Liga and the divisions of the Women's Bundesliga on the same weekend.
With this joint effort, the DFL and DFB would like to send a common message from German football for peace. Football is a sport that brings people together, which is why we all stand up for peaceful coexistence, respect and tolerance.
