The German Football League (DFL) announced Monday that all 36 clubs which have qualified to compete in the Bundesliga and 2. Bundesliga were granted licenses for the 2020-21 season.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, it was decided by the DFL general assembly in March to suspend the check of financial liquidity in assessing applications to give clubs “the possibility and time to deal with the economic impacts of the corona pandemic and to continue regular competition operations.”
Typically, the annual DFL licensing process includes a review of each member club’s sporting, legal, administrative, infrastructure, and media-tech organizations in addition to the financial oversight component.
The DFL currently plans to check club finances during the upcoming season, with documentation due by September 15.
