Abolition of the summer break? Dfl openly discusses

Bayern munchen’s chairman karl-heinz rummenigge had again suggested moving the bundesliga season more into the summer: "we don’t play fubball in germany from may to august, even though we have the best weather in those months. Maybe we should take a break when the weather is bad here."

Hannover’s president martin kind also spoke out in favor of the idea in the "bild" newspaper. "The winter season is not so tingly for the fans. In summer everything is more relaxed, easier."The topic has also been discussed at meetings of bundesliga managers – with a divided response.

"When you are freezing your butt off in the winter, this idea is naturally tempting. But you have to be thankful that you can only do this on a european level," said dortmund’s managing director hans-joachim watzke. "You also have to consider that in the southern countries it’s the other way around. The spanish or italians certainly don’t want to play at 45 degrees in summer."

Wolfsburg’s head of sports klaus allofs is a "rather traditionalist" on the issue and warned in the "bild" newspaper: "but new problems also arose that were difficult to solve."The television ratings are higher in the winter, many fans are on vacation during the summer vacations, and the amateur soccer calendar has had to be decoupled from the professionals because they cannot actually play through the summer due to the school vacations. Current anstob is the debate around the world championship 2022 in katar, with which because of heat over a shift into the winter months is considered.
