Bayern, Dortmund, RB Leipzig & Leverkusen Provide €20M Pot for Struggling German Clubs to Share

Four of German football’s biggest clubs have pooled their resources to help struggling clubs further down the pyramid, as the financial constraints of the coronavirus pandemic take grip.

No fixtures have been played in German football since March 8, with football suspended all over the globe following the spread of Covid-19, with clubs suffering without the income of home and cup fixtures.

Earlier this month, Borussia Mönchengladbach revealed their first-team players had taken a wage-cut in order to help backroom staff receive their wages, but now the country’s biggest sides have stepped in to help.

The sizeable fund will be shared not only between clubs in the lower tiers but amongst teams in the top division who are struggling to pay the bills during this difficult time.

What do you think of the gesture, and should other big clubs in European football follow suit?
