QUIRK OF THE DAY: German football stadium disinfected because of virus

Fri, 21st Feb 2014 11:02

Berlin (Alliance News) - Parts of the stadium belonging to Greuther Fuerth, the German second division team, have been disinfected following the outbreak of a suspected norovirus.

The training centre has also been disinfected and team training has been cancelled. On the advice of the local health department, the club's office has been closed.

"We don't yet know where the virus came from," said a club spokesman Friday.

The team currently sits second in the German second division and is pushing for promotion back to the top flight.

Nine players, in addition to various coaches and officials, have been struck by the virus which is causing havoc with preparation for the important clash with league leaders Cologne Monday.

"This is of course everything other than a good basis for the game," sport director Rouven Schroeder told the Fuerth website Thursday. "We were in contact with the German Football League but currently there is no opportunity to move the game."
