German Soccer Is Back, Just Without the Fans

When soccer clubs Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund meet on the pitch it’s called “The Classic,” and it’s a big deal in German soccer.

The success of Germany’s lockdown means alongside shops, restaurants, and museums, soccer is now back on the pitch. Meaning Bayern and Dortmund can finally battle it out for top of the league.

“Without fans, it’s not football, football lives from the fans,” says Aymen Gabsi, a die-hard Dortmund supporter.
