This decision means that the men's national team will not take part in the 2020 Deutschland Cup, the women's national team will not attend the annual four-nation tournament in Füssen, as well as various cancelations of international games and events for the junior national teams.

"The health of everyone involved - players, coaches, staff, helpers and officials - is our top priority. In the current situation and after the latest developments around Covid-19, we can't be responsible for bringing together players from all regions of the country to play international tournaments or games," Lars Weibel, Director National Team, states.

International events for December are still part of the schedule for now.
