Where are they, how are they faring and when might they resume? We catch up with the current status for all Matildas abroad.
Germany- Frauen Bundesliga
At present only one Matilda plays her club soccer in Germany, Emily Gielnik. Gielnik is at FC Bayern Munich and by all accounts has been living in Germany during the Covid-19 pandemic.
When the Frauen Bundesliga was suspended on March 16, FC Bayern had played sixteen of their twenty-two league games. The Frauen Bundesliga teams voted this week to complete the 2019-20 season.
To accomplish this german clubs will have to abide by the German Task Force for Sports Medicine/Special Match Operation's requirements.
These requirements include hygiene requirements, constant testing for the Covid-19 virus, and continuous monitoring when matches start taking place.
Clubs will be the ones responsible for applying these requirements. How and when some of the smaller clubs in the Bundesliga will be able to abide by this has not been released.
How and when training and subsequently matches will resume has also not been announced by the league.
