German FA says unvaccinated referees can continue in Bundesliga

Football referees in the Bundesliga in Germany who have chosen not to vaccinate against COVID-19 can still officiate, German Football Federation refereeing boss Lutz Michael Fröhlich said on Sunday.

About 90 per cent of referees in the Bundesliga are vaccinated against COVID-19, and the rate is similar to that of players.

“The vaccination quota among referees is high. But the unvaccinated are also allowed to referee games —- as before,” Fröhlich said.

“We have already had positive cases, but that was in a time window that was unproblematic. The referees then went into quarantine.”

Fröhlich is the head of DFB Schiri GmbH, a company which was partly spun off from the DFB on January 1.

He will not name those who test positive for the virus.
