    Judo Bundesliga scheduled as a tournament

    The German Bundesliga is one of the strongest judo leagues in the world where international top athletes are invited to fight for the German clubs. Normally in a competition form, this year due to the corona pandemic, a tournament will be held instead of a regular league.

    The Judo Bundesliga should still take place in this calendar year. The German Judo Association (DJB) is currently developing an alternative concept with the Bundesliga officials and clubs. It is planned to hold the first Bundesliga tournament from October 10th to 11th, 2020.

    A suitable location has been found in Brandenburg's Senftenberg. Ten teams from the men's Bundesliga and six teams from the women's Bundesliga have currently signaled their interest in participating. KSC Asahi Spremberg, is a competent club and also involved in the organisation of the Bundesliga tournament.

    After asking the club to participate in the Bundesliga tournament, the detailed concept for holding the event is now being finalised. The date of 10 October is now fixed for the men’s tournament and the following day, 11 October for the women’s event.

    Whether the event can actually be carried out depends on the further development of the corona pandemic and the corona rules in the federal states.

    The judo Bundesliga wants to position itself clearly with this advance. DJB board spokesman Reinhard Nimz also sees the development of the alternative Bundesliga concept as confirmation “that we are trying to revive the judo sport in Germany.” We would like to continue the German team championships and conclude with a title”.
