The player was isolated, said the league. "The responsible health authority has been contacted, whose decision on how to proceed is still pending," said the message. Alba had surprisingly won in the Euroleague at CSKA Moscow in Russia on Friday and was due to play his first group game on Sunday evening at 6 p.m. in Bonn against the Löwen Braunschweig.

League boss Stefan Holz had already predicted two days before the cup tournament that corona-related postponements could occur this season. “There will be impacts,” said Holz.

A fact that, with all the joy of the clubs, brought new questions and challenges with it in retrospect. Because at the first national competitive games in front of an audience since March, the fans weren't exactly fighting over the tickets.

"It is clear that this will not be a sure-fire success," said Philipp Galewski, managing director of Bamberg. Its opening win against Ulm - both semi-finalists from the previous year - saw only 150 fans in Weißenfels.

A lot of communication is required. ”The handball Bundesliga clubs had already had similar experiences. Bamberg itself recently had 1200 fans approved for a test match, but only sold a good half of the tickets.

In the opinion of his Weißenfels counterpart Martin Geissler, not only the clubs are in demand in communication. "If the authorities and politics speak of an increased risk situation, I would also consider going to a major event," said the 35-year-old. As a club you can show that you do everything for the safety of the audience and convince them that way.

So far, football has shown that sports events are not automatically super-spreader events. "We already had over 200,000 spectators in the stadium and there are no known infections that can be traced back to this," said Florian Kainzinger.
