Kiel (dpa / lno) - Uwe Schwenker would like to hold on to normal game operations in the handball Bundesliga for as long as possible: “We have not yet passed the point at which it is no longer possible.

But we are close, "said the president of the league association HBL the" Kieler Nachrichten "(Tuesday).

On Wednesday the HBL wants to discuss in an online meeting with representatives of the 1st and 2nd league how the current series can be continued.

Schwenker prefers the normal system with a return game.

However, he could not assess whether that was still realistic.

Due to the current Corona case at THW-Kiel "the situation has changed again".

The former manager of the “Zebras” also wants to listen to other models such as the division of the league: “At the moment I'm open to everything.

We have to see what is realistic and economically, logistically feasible, ”said the 61-year-old.

Looking to the future, Schwenker said: “The priority for the league is to get the clubs through the pandemic economically.

There are a lot of costs right now, no income.

There are also state aid, TV contracts, sponsors - it's very complex.

My top priority would be to play again in front of a relatively large audience in September, when a large part of the population is vaccinated. "
