NO MONDAY NIGHTS
The German Football League (DFL) announced that they will remove Monday night fixtures from their Bundesliga schedule. The DFL only as recently as 2017 introduced the new Monday night fixture to the calendar, but it has proven unpopular amongst fans. The Monday games will remain for the duration of the current broadcast rights deal which expires at the end of the 2020/21 season. But, moving forward, in negotiating for the next broadcast contract, the Monday evening match will be cut. Under the new contract, it is the DFL’s intentions to move the Monday fixture to Sunday afternoon.
