The Bundesliga will commemorate the victims of the tragedy in Berlin with a minute’s silence at all matches held on Tuesday and Wednesday. The players will also wear black armbands.
“In this way, we want to express our solidarity with the victims’ families as well as the citizens of our capital city,” said DFL president Dr. Reinhard Rauball. “The thoughts of professional football go out to the families of those who were killed as well as the numerous people who were injured, whom we wish a speedy and full recovery. We are all deeply shocked by what happened on Monday evening at a peaceful Christmas market.”
Bundesliga clubs and players have taken to social media to express their deepest sympathies for victims.
