Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen have come together to create a €20m (£18.3m) solidarity fund to help German clubs in the top two tiers stave off a potential financial crisis during the coronavirus pandemic.
Germany’s Bundesliga and second division are scheduled to resume in early April but the organising body’s (DFL) executive committee has recommended the season be suspended until at least 30 April, which will further impact clubs’ revenues.
