Bundesliga games during the Qatar World Cup without a national player?

-

Ain the afternoon Mainz against Augsburg in the wet and cold Mainz stadium, in the evening Germany against France in the desert. Two candles are already burning on the advent wreath. According to the “Sport Bild”, an adventurous plan for 2022 is being discussed in the Bundesliga, according to which, from the period of the World Cup quarter-finals in Qatar, Germany could be played again – but only in part. The table would be distorted for weeks, there is no confirmation for the idea.

"It is possible that there will be rounds of the Bundesliga teams parallel to the World Cup. We will work out how they could be in the next few weeks, ”said Werder Bremen's sporting director Frank Baumann of the magazine. The 44-year-old sits on the DFL Football Commission, which is intensely concerned with the difficult schedule for the 2022/23 season. According to dpa information, match days during the Qatar finals are highly unlikely. The framework calendar will probably not be approved by the German Football Association (DFB) until the end of 2021.

England's second division may play through

Until then, speculations and ideas are likely to come to the public again and again. The "Sport Bild" writes of two to three game days that could be organized during the World Cup. The clubs that have no or hardly any national players would play against each other. The clubs with too many professionals who are still absent or have just come home would play catch-up games. Similar considerations are being made for the second division, officially according to DFL boss Christian Seifert.

"In England the 2nd league may even play through during the World Cup," said Seifert of the "Bild am Sonntag". Implementation in the second-highest division would be significantly easier than in the Bundesliga.

Women's football knows the scenario

There was a comparable situation in the past in women's football: the American professional league WPSL had continued to play with all teams during the 2015 World Cup in Canada as well as last summer in France, although more than 50 national players of the later world champion each United States and other teams at the World Cup. The WPSL even saw the World Cup taking place at the same time as advertising for the local league. The World Cup games had focused on women's football and increased the desire for the live experience. This assessment was confirmed by some remarkable numbers of viewers.
