The Bundesliga, which was suspended in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, received permission from the German government on Wednesday to resume its season in the second half of May.

It will become the first major soccer league to return since the coronavirus forced non-essential businesses to shutter across Europe and the world.

Matches are expected to be played without fans and behind closed doors.

More to come.
