Leipzig (AP) - Without the return of spectators in the coming months, handball Bundesliga club SC DHfK Leipzig threatens financial difficulties.

«The situation is currently stable.

We owe this to our partners, ”said DHfK managing director Karsten Günther of the“ Leipziger Volkszeitung ”(Saturday).

“You are very painful, have not been allowed into the hall for five games - and still paid.

But if it stays that way for half a year, we'll have a real problem.

That is simply a fact and no federal aid program can compensate for that - at least not the current programs. "

According to Günther, it is “essential that our fans can return to the arena soon”.

The manager hopes to play in front of fans again in March.

“The question now is whether the political will is strong enough to make this possible by then.

All provided that the incidence is below 50 by then, ”said Günther.
