Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, RB Leipzig and Bayer Leverkusen have joined forces to create a 20 million euros ($21.92 million) fund to help German clubs avoid a potential crisis during the Coronavrisu pandemic, Reuters reported.
The Bundesliga and second division are set to resume action in early April however the organising body's executive committee has suggested that the leagues be suspending until April 30.
Borussia Dortmund revealed that the four clubs who featured in the Champions League this season will give up their share of the national media revenue which is in the region of 12.5 million euros — while adding an additional 7.5 million euros of their own.
"We are prepared to help out other professional football clubs if it is ultimately a matter of cushioning the financial effects of the pandemic," Dortmund CEO Hans-Joachim Watzke said in a statement.
“The DFL Executive Committee is very thankful to the four Champions League participants for their gesture towards our community of clubs,” said Executive Committee spokesman Christian Seifert.
“This initiative shows that solidarity is more than just lip service in the Bundesliga and Bundesliga 2.”
