International friendly: Germany v Italy cancelled

The international friendly match between Germany and Italy scheduled to be played in Nuremberg on 31 March has been cancelled due to the health crisis and spread of Coronavirus.

The region of Bavaria has banned all gatherings of over 100 people, so even if the match took place in an empty stadium, the number of team members, support staff and media participants would likely exceed that limit.


The German football federation, DFB, said “Cancellation was inevitable“.

Germany are also scheduled to play in Madrid against Spain on 26 March, but this encounter has yet to be officially cancelled.
